You will be greatly missed my friend. I will miss our chats, and your thoughts on what is happening in this great country of ours. I can't believe you were called home so soon. Thank you Ranger for always being a listening ear. And thank you for your service . Prayers for your family at this difficult time. May you rest easy in heaven. Until we meet again.....

Tim, it was an honor to call you a brother, since we both served our country. We shared many days in the research field together teaching each other within our areas of expertise. I will miss those good times we had!!!!

I only had the pleasure of knowing you a short time, but when I met you it felt as if we had known each other for decades. As many have already said, Valhalla has gained a mighty warrior and is now more secure with your arrival. We'll see each other again one day and you can show me around.

To Tim's family...please know that he was loved and respected by so very many, and while we will all surely miss him, we will honor him by remembering him and all the events we shared with each other. May God bless you all.

The world has lost a good one but heaven has gained one.
As you scout the road ahead of us I hope your able to guide us all home when the time comes.
God speed !
May you rest in peace.

I don't have the words that can adequately express my sense of loss. We were training brothers, drinking partners, bouncers, roommates, trouble causing Jolly Roger hoisting rabble rousers ... now just older and with more creaks.

The Halls of Valhalla are secured by one more today, the Gates of Heaven guarded by an excellent companion and we are a bit weaker and definitely less by their gain.

I hope to carry on in a fashion that makes me worthy to share your company and drink hot sake when it's a frigid winter night outside again.
