Tim was vibrant, gregarious and “never met a stranger.” Tim’s son Grant, his pride and joy, fulfilled Tim’s dream of watching him graduate from the United States Air Force Academy this past May. He spoke often and proudly of Grant’s service as 2nd Lt. in the USAF. Tim worked at Continental Airlines for 16 years prior to working at the courthouse.

Tim was one of the most wonderful, genuine, compassionate souls around. His smile, charm and warm personality will be greatly missed. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with his loving family at this difficult time.

Tim was one of the most pleasant, good-natured, friendly people that I have known. I got to work with him at Continental, where he made the office a better place for everyone around. He and I would often walk across downtown on our lunch hour to grab Asian dumplings or some other favorite food and hang out.
I feel blessed to have been friends with him, and he will be missed.

I worked In the court house with Tim he was such a beautiful old soul with a smile and laugh that would turn anyone’s horrible day around again it’s strange that when I need to call the 418th for something to have to remind myself not to dial his number or not send him a email I will miss how he always was happy and upbeat and would always come in saying hello to everyone and I’ll even miss his Hawaiian shirts on fridays that he wore I will keep praying for his family! It feels empty without him here!

Our hearts are deeply saddened by hearing that Tim is no longer with us! He was a very helpful and giving person. Tim had a way of making everyone he met feel right at home. There was not a time my wife nor I couldn't go to him and get the help we needed. My spouse and I pray that God will embrace his family and friends during this time. Our prayers are with you all.

Tim was one of my favorite people in the Courthouse. He was always helpful and always had a smile. Family courts are not fun places to be for litigants, but he made it easier for everyone with his knowledge of the job and the sympathetic way he dealt with everyone. It would be easy to say how much he contributed to the people around him. But words cannot describe how much he will be missed by those who worked with him every day. The 418th District Court may hire someone else to do his job, but it will be a long time before we walk through that door and be used to Tim not being there. As much as I liked Tim I know that cannot compare to the loss felt by his co-workers. To lose someone so suddenly is hard. We should be comforted that Tim lived life to serve others and was a great example to us in how to do that.

Tim and I shared a love for great Soul music from the Motown and eighties era and Tim was a huge fan of Prince. Tim was really shaken when Prince died and we talked about it for a long time. There was not a time when I would call the office to get a hearing date or stop by to check on one that we did not discuss music and what artist would be arriving in Houston that he wanted to see. He loved his son and he loved life. He wanted to hear about other people's accomplishments when we spoke because I believe he felt that meant there was good going on somewhere so stay positive. Tim will be missed as much as he was loved. God has received a great front office greeter...our coordinator Tim Parks.

Somehow Tim turned the contentious world of a family law courtroom into a warm and very human place. He disarmed the confused litigant or the stressed-out attorney with his easy-going personality, his humor, and his smile. What a truly decent and kind human being. The world needs more people like Tim. He will be greatly missed.

Tim was our upstairs neighbor for over 4 years he was kind and always willing to help us with anything we ever needed. We felt safe with him above us and I know he is above with the Lord Jesus Christ love and prayers to his entire family. He will be missed.
