Condolences to you all for the loss of TC, who I was fortunate enough to have known since he was a young man. He was so kind, compassionate, and fun-loving. He was looking for a cure, it was just not in time for him. I saw him recently and he told me what was going on. I asked how his Mom was, and our talk turned into a wonderful conversation about love! He loved so much! May god give you comfort at this time and Tim’s memory be Eternal 🙏.

Did a lot of business with Ron and Tim when they had Ron Wal. We Became close friends after that and once a year we met and had lunch. Every year Tim and I met prior to the 4th of a July to get fireworks and grab lunch. I’ll always have the great memories on everything he did for me. Tim was a great son to Ron, great husband and father. He was always there for you . It’s hard to believe that a person like Tim is gone way to early. I’ll always have the memories of Tim and Ron. I’m still trying to deal with his loss.
My condolences to his mom, wife and children
