Dear Virginia and Family,
as we all mourn the passing of Tim , we also sense the loss of someone who truly put others before self. Wether being a loving husband, protecting his precious cargo on his school bus.
Being a Charter member (20 years) of the Purple Martin Landlords of North Texas organization and caring for a most successful Purple Martin Bird colony in North Texas or doing the RIGHT thing as a Boyd City Councilman, Tim did it with compassion. Not many folks like him anymore!
We all know God has called his faithful one and we have lost a true friend.
May God bless Tim, Ginny and family.
Your friends Gisela and Richard Fregoe. Grand Prairie, TX

Tim and Ginny are two of the kindest, most generous, and warmest people you would ever have the pleasure of knowing. Tim was an honorable man, a gentleman and a mentor to many. He set the bar high but would extend his hand to help you get there. As a kid, I always remember how much fun he was to be around. I love that he and Ginny took such good care of my grandmother, their Aunt Cleo, on their many trips together. Ginny my heart and prayers go out to you as I know you lost your soulmate and your best friend. We love you,
Tonyia Canales and Family
