Tim was a definite light in our family. He never had a negative word about anyone. He would tell me, "Eileen, we all have our own ways and see things through our own eyes. You just have to make sure your eyes are clear. He brought love and laughter to our family. He taught me not only how to see the laughter in life but to laugh at myself when I was taking life too seriously. I thought that light went out but then I look at my beautiful niece Dawn, Josh, Hogan and Emerson and the love and strength they have and share to keep all of us strong is the light he would want for all of us. I think of you often and wish I had just one more talk with you. Maybe I will, when I see you again.

Tim lived his life with gusto. Whether he was at work or play, with family or friends, he brought a positive attitude and a spirit of fun that made everyone want to be around him. He was a wonderful role model for his sons, family, employees and friends. The world and our family are sadder places without him. We will always miss him!

Dear Uncle Tim,
I remember every time we came to colorado you got us a moon bounce to play on. You woke up earlier than me and when I came downstairs you played with me. You also taught me cool games to play. We will always love and remember you.

Love, Ella

Tim's positivity, strength, humor and good nature were as reliable as the sun and moon. When he passed I simply could not imagine the world, and our family, without him in it. He was always the calm, sensible one that held our crazy family of hens together. The strength of Dawn, Josh & Hogan are a tribute the amazing man he was and his mark on the world, and on those who were lucky enough to know him, will continue the rest of our days. I have lost a brother and my children the greatest uncle imaginable - Tim will continue to light our lives from above as reliably as he did when he was with us. I love you, Tim. Thank you so much for gracing my life for the last 25 years, you will be forever missed.

Tim, you were a great friend who always made everyone around you feel like they mattered. Hanging around you was so much fun because it always felt like something really cool was bound to happen at any moment.

I am grateful for the time we shared and regret that there weren't more (I'm so sorry now that I didn't do the Mudder with you in June).

You lived life on your terms and brightened the lives of those around you. You've left a legacy of family and friends who are better for having shared this ride with you.

Godspeed, my friend.

Tim has been my everything for 25 years. He was my best friend, the love of my life, my business partner and the father of our 3 beautiful children. Losing him has created a whole in my life that can never be filled.
That said, I will not crumble and I will not break. I have made a promise to Tim to make sure that I do whatever it takes to fulfill our dreams and keep the life that we created alive. I will make sure that Joshua, Hogan, Emmerson and I be the very best we can be. We will be living legacies as a tribute to having the blessing to live our lives with such a great man. People will look at my children and say, “of course they are kind, good-hearted, positive and hard working people. They could be nothing less because Tim Abbott was their Dad.”
Tim & I loved every minute of raising the boys; we made the most out of life and always had so much fun. We have been so proud of the boys and the fact that they have become such good people. When Emme came along it was a shock we were not expecting. We had concerns about starting over and ever being able to retire and of course being older parents. We wondered why now when the boys both are leaving home and we were about to start a new chapter as empty nesters. We knew however we were given this blessing for a reason and we would be shown how special she was and that she was meant for us. Now it all makes sense. God gives before he takes away. Emmerson is my reason for waking up every day and still smiling. She cannot be raised in a house full of sorrow, so I must stay positive like her Dad would be. Even though she has lost her Dad she was born 18 and 21 years after her brothers, so that she will always have great men as father figures in her life. They will be there to make sure she knows how amazing her father was and walk her down the aisle some day.
I am so sorry and sad for so many people who will miss having Tim in their lives. He will be so deeply missed. He would do anything for a friend and always be there for all those he cared about. He never met a stranger and would have easy conversation with everyone he met. Tim was the strongest, kindest, toughest and most fun man I have ever known. Everyone who knew him knew he was one of the good guys. As I asked Why him, my sister said to me Why not? Why shouldn't the best people get to go to a better place? Heaven is truly a better place now that Tim is there. I will look forward to the day when we can meet again.

I love you!
