I just remember those times when Tim would come home and find all us girls under the kitchen table just hanging out. Those memories will last forever. Going to the chicken pantry will forever by my favorite because of you. Miss you dearly papa wolf. You were truly a one of a kind soul.

This truly hurts . We met through mutual friends and he wanted to know who’s this Cha Cha guy ? Invite him over for drinks let’s interrogate him see if he fits in . I learned that night don’t ever be sensitive or you will be the but of the joke … all in good fun of course . When I met Tim we just clicked we laughed argued and we shared lots of deep conversations about life love and family . That kitchen counter with the stools was Tim’s stage and there were some nights I couldn’t walk laugh or think straight …. Because of the Blue .. what we called it . Titos & Lemonade a garbage pizza with every topping known to man or a great BBQ or lobster roll . He was our fearless leader HMFIC of our Rainbow Riders! He took you in as a tear drop then a rain drop then a rider . So many travels listening to music getting food or just chilling out . We shared some crazy night like when he thought he was Evil Knievel in the parking lot and crashed his bike … I was there we got him to the hospital and got him better …. He joked and wanted pictures of his ribs showing . Or the time he slipped in the backyard on the deck and Pipes and I caught him before he fell in the lake . “Just get me a band aid who’s hungry “ lol . I could talk to him about anything and the thing I loved is Tim had no problem calling you out . He recently told me how happy he was for
Me because 7 years ago I totally lost my mind my business and forgot about the world . He said she will never leave her husband for you wake the fuck up ! He admitted to me finally he was wrong . He knew enough about everything to be dangerous and he had a heart of gold . He loved people around and made anyone he just met feel comfortable as long as they had a thick skin . He loved his kids so much and was so proud of Bug & Tuck . I am going to miss waking up and reading his daily affirmations. Delaney hope you can get them all and right a book . I miss you my brother gone to fast but like the song says only the good die young 🥲🙏🏻💔

So I’m from NY. And I visit Florida often more often since becoming friends with Tim! Recently the opportunity came to have my daughter Katie Jane accompany me to Florida. I have friends all over FLA but it was most important for me to have my daughter meet this guy who I truly cherished my friendship with. He was one helluva character and had stories I NEVER got tired of listening to and was always eager to hear new ones . And always had something badass to share with me that left me in awe a new bike, a new car, work done at one of the houses etc… I also found him to be the most generous person I got to know, offering me a place to crash whether be in Florida or North Carolina! I was so glad Katie and I got to spend time with him not long before he passed! My trips to Florida will be ending not because of Tim’s passing but more so because he motivated me to move to Florida which I’m in the process of doing as I type this! Whether visiting or living in Florida life will NEVER be the same without you my friend! Thank you for your Legendary life stories and teaching me to NEVER give up the fight! Miss and love you brother!

A very dear friend who showed us the way to all the backwoods fun places while riding our motorcycles, had a big heart and a personality bigger than life. Irv and I will miss your smile. Ride high with Louise my friend.
