My heart is broken to hear of Tim's passing. He was such a positive, friendly face at the Y. You could always count on him saying hello or making you laugh. The world needs more like him and he will be greatly missed.

I worked with Tim at the Y for more than 8 years before I moved out of state. In fact, Tim trained me when I first started there. What a wonderful man he was. I always enjoyed being in his company and was so saddened to hear of his passing. I will miss him and his wonderful chocolate brownies! My heartfelt condolences to his loved ones.

Tim and I have attended church throughout the years since we were kids. Tim loved our Lord Jesus Christ and it showed throughout his life. His laugh and humor will certainly be missed. “Well done thy good and faithful servant,” must have been spoken Thursday.
Prayers & comfort to family & friends.

Tim was one the first people I met when I started working at the Y and one of the biggest blessings in my life. He was a part time employee and full time in our heart. He had this way of helping us all connect and bringing us closer together. He supported and encouraged staff
and members in the growth of their careers and personal goals.
My favorite memories were his mid workout history lessons during his cycle class. The Y is more than a gym and he is an example of that.

So sorry to hear of Tim’s passing.
Such a nice person. He was a good friend. I loved listening to all his cat stories. I loved to hear him when he would fill in for our Pastor. He was such a good example of how we should live our lives.
Although i am sad, I can rejoice in knowing that I will one day see my friend again in Heaven.
Love in Christ,

Tim was a friendly face that I enjoyed seeing at the downtown YMCA. I can here his voice greeting members on a first name basis. He reminded me of the song from Cheers....where everybody knows your name.
He was in constant motion and probably folded more than his share of towels.
If I had not been to the gym for awhile , Tim was the kind of guy to acknowledge me with a kind welcome back.

I have so many good memories growing up with Tim. I enjoyed spending time at Tim’s house with Jeff. Tim was the best man in our wedding. Definitely a great guy and will be missed. Tim was a great Bible scholar and was a good teacher/speaker.

Tim was so sweet to be around.

At Wednesday night prayer service when he filled in for pastor, he was very good and very humble. I learned many things from him but mainly I learned by following his example of being a servant.
