Tim was a caring, generous and fun loving man. He loved children and loved to make people laugh. He was always willing to lend a helping hand when someone needed it. I loved hearing his deep voice and laughter. I loved his big 'bear' hugs. Sometimes you never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. I love the random memories of him that make me smile... No matter what's going on in my life right now. Tim touched my life in so many ways. I have lots of great memories of our time spent together over the many years I knew him. Memories are timeless treasures of the heart and those memories of Tim have become treasures that I will cherish and they will live in my heart forever. Rest in peace Tim. My love always, Muffy (my nic name)

I could hardly believe that Tim would never be with us again on this earth. Jesus must have missed him so he decided to take him home. He will be missed here by many of us; but, if we live a good life we will be together again in God's time. We loved the time he spent with our family. Rest in peace, till we meet again.

Gentle Giant. a man with a Heart of Gold. He led a simple life, (and liked it that way).
Loyalty and Integrity. A friend for Life. I can't begin to count the times I would call my mom to see how she was, only to find out that Tim was there lending a hand, helping my mom with something. He was dedicated to Family. It didn't need to be 'his' he just celebrated the family bond. He had such a way with kids, they could wrap him around their finger in a matter of minutes. The Holiday Dinners that he spent at our house, it was always exciting to know that Tim was coming over. He brought life to the room when he arrived. The 'Nic-Names' he had for everyone.... Funny, Loving, just his way of saying he liked you. Hearing about the accident... Took my breath away... It's one of those moments when your heart stops, you can no longer hear anything else that someone is saying to you.. All that's going through your head is 'No Not Tim... ' the Good really do die Young. You were a great Father, A Dedicated Son and an Amazing Friend. In our hearts and memories until we take our last breath... ??? Tumble Weed (my nic name)

What I hope to learn from Tim's example:
Stick to a bedtime, go to sleep when you're tired!
Wake up early (sometimes before the sun is even up) enthusiastically ready for the new day!
Drive the speed limit or less (he was a "grandpa driver")
Laugh loudly; let it be known that you are there!
Live life to the fullest doing what you want, with no regrets or fears!....

Tim was an amazing man! He was very kind, caring and generous! He is missed and loved by so many!! R.I.P Tim!

I only had the pleasure of working with Tim a handful of times, but enjoyed the conversations. The teamster brothers have definitely lost a good one. R.I.P
