If You knew Dad or even if you had just met him you couldn't not Love the man. He was wonderful, thoughtful & had the biggest heart . He had a unique sense of humor. Dad loved to Tease& tell cute(sometimes corney)jokes always lightning the mood. I dont know if ever I got the chance to tell him how much I looked up to him and was one of my biggest idols. How Greatful I am for all the help and guidance he had given to me.I looked up to him not only as father figure but truly he is the strongest man I know.Know matter what punches life threw at him (Let me tell ya there were ALOT) He fought threw them all right down to the very end.Always finding humor in the situation and always had a SMILE on his face. He will be greatly missed& forever in my heart.

Whether it was his choice to become a medic during the Vietnam war, or his enjoyment in taking us on fishing and camping trips in an old converted Omar truck camper when we were youngsters; whether it was assisting his friends at the local bait shop, or serving as a fountain of knowledge when it came to construction and automotive information; whether it was assuming the task of moving belongings from a house when the person who had been living there couldn't, or just plain taking pride in simply being the most loving husband and father he could be -- Tim has always shown a passion for helping and supporting others that will be sorely missing from this planet now.
