I worked at Brookdale Center mall with Tim. We spent many hours patrolling the mall and just talking. Tim was a by the book and compassionate guy. Those gold gargoyle sunglasses so he could pay homage to Dale Sr. It was an honor to get to know Tim and his family while working with him. You will be missed my friend. Rest easy my and be with the Lord. Until we meet again.

Scooby was once my youth group leader for conformation. In that group was also his son who i could tell he loved so much. I envied their bond. Such amazing people. I never finished but could have not asked for a better, more possitive roll model. He was loved by anyone he spoke to or smiled at. He was the man.
