Theresa and family
So sad to hear about Tim’s passing. Have fond memories of meeting Tim at all of the company events for both WBLI and PWC.
He certainly was a great guy. Stay strong. Our deepest condolences.

Very sorry for your loss and it's hard to hear that an old friend has passed. Tim and I went to Sackville High together and spent lots of time on our dirt bikes and swimming down across the tracks in Lakeview. Lots of weekends camping in the back yard too.
I can remember evenings when his mom would make a big serving of "toast" and Tim, me and other friends would sit in the Kitchen and chow down.
Rest in Peace "My old Friend"

Theresa, Dan, Missy and Emm. My heart is breaking for you all. I had the pleasure of not many times together with Tim, but I always looked forward to our visit's at Emmett's birthday parties. May you all find the strength to remember the good times in this time of deep sorrow. A quiet, but undoubtedly a kind man. May he rest in peace. With love M, K, K & AJ
