I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Tim - at family parties and BBQs, watching his awesome dance moves, conversations over a scotch... one early memory always stuck with me from a party at the Robilotta’s house in Sayville. I was a super shy, awkward teenager at the time, and just had a hard time talking to anyone. A group of us decided to take a walk down to the water, and Uncle Tim ambled up beside me and told me a story about his memories of being a teenager and dancing. Although that might seem kind of small, I remember this fondly because I got a peak into Uncle Tim’s life. I also just felt so honored that he was talking to me so openly - I felt like an adult, and he didn’t care how awkward and shy i was! Just one small story of many that demonstrate his goodness. I will miss you Uncle Tim.

I remember being in a rowboat with Timmy rowing on the St. Lawrence River while we were at Uncle Francis' camp. Timmy was all over the place and I though for sure we were going to crash into the dock but we really did not care, too young to know scared. Needless to say, Timmy rowed us right between the two camps and onto the shore. Great times at a great place.

Supper at 6:00
don’t be late
why don’t you just walk down the block and knock on Mikes door instead of wasting a dime
John, What’s going on in my basement
A Real Family Man
The world is a little colder without Mr Taylor in it
Thanks for all the life lessons spoken from the end of your Kent cigarettes
Hard to believe you were able to quit smoking and then live in your own basement just to help you family
You’ll be missed !!

We will miss Uncle Tim dearly. My family had the pleasure of having Uncle Tim visit our house many times for birthday parties over the past few years. Tim was always so generous and so appreciative each time he came.

My earliest memory of Uncle Tim was being around when the Taylor family moved from New Hyde Park to Massapequa and that was just the first of so many more memories throughout the years from bar-b-ques to holiday celebrations.

At one of the last celebrations he was at with us in February of this year I shared with him this link....I love that he is captured here on the internet doing one of the things he loved to do:

is such a kind and gentle soul whom we all love and will all miss.

I have such happy memories of having coffee on the porch, of dancing on the cruise, of laughing because we couldn't get an ice cream sundae at the sundae bar, of chatting on the phone, of birthday cards, of travel to Ireland.

One of my favorite stores of Tim's was of the time when TV's were new to the market. We laughed when he told of going into the closet and listening the the neighbor's TV before the Taylor family got one.
