My deepest condolence to the Wren Families. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you during this time.
Tim will always be in my heart and thoughts. He was such a respectable man. I always remember all the Carrier guys coming into Karlovichs after work. Tim would have a couple and say he had to get home to Betty and his kids. Volunteering Betty to make chili for the bar. Definitely fond memories of Tim. May he now be at Peace.

Tim took his role as Wren family story teller seriously - at every family gathering, he always had his audience thoroughly charmed and entertained. Thanks for sharing your gift of the gab with the outlaws, Tim! We’ll miss you.

I had the privilege of working with Tim for 17 years at Carrier. Tim was a great guy, and always helped me when I had problems. He had a great sense of humor, and always made the best of a bad situation. I have many great memories of him. Definitely going to be missed!

I've known the Wren Family since I was 12 years old. You couldn't ask for nicer neighbors. Always willing to help out when I had a problem with my furnace or air conditioner, Tim was a kind person with a good heart. I will miss seeing him sitting the back yard, smiling and waving. It is true, the good always die too young. Rest in peace Tim.
