Some friends you carry in your heart even though your life paths take you in different directions.
Tim and I worked together at the OU Faculty Club in the late 1990s to early 2000s. I always thought I would return for a visit and get to raise a glass with him. Looks like I may have to wait just a little longer.
Safe journey, my friend.

I am struggling to comprehend that Tim's time with us has come to an end. I worked at The University Club from the fall of 1994 to 2002. During that time I had the great fortune to work with Tim to serve the university community. During that time we offered two multi course wine dinners that demonstrated the culinary skill of Tim. They highlighted Tim's amazing abilities and a sheer joy for creating beauty through food. We are all poorer for the loss of Tim and the loss of Tim's creative voice.

My condolences to your family and friends. We only worked together for one summer. You made it one of the funniest, happiest and silliest summers ever working at OU. Thank you for all the laughs. Ou will never be the same without you.
See you on the other side ,

I will remember my uncle Tim most for his kindness and his sense of humor. He was always quick to make the family the BEST omelets when we were together. His deep and kind voice was always one that brought me comfort. I love the way he called my grandma "Ma." There was just something so sweet about it.

One of the things I admire most about him was that he grew through his struggles and worked hard to change his life for the better; something that I think is the exception rather than the rule. He didn't blame others for his circumstances, but took steps he could to make his own life and the lives of those around him better using kindness and his sense of humor.

In a world that's often short of kindness, you will be missed, uncle Tim. I am grateful for the time I had with you. Thank you.

Tim and I met when our building first opened, actually, before that when we still weren't allowed in. When we say "bring life to the University" I will always think about Tim, nobody could make you laugh with such ease. His professionalism, his craving to learn more, his uncompromising concern for the students we work with and the quality of our operation cannot be overstated.
Personally Tim was a friend. We talked often, trusted each other to look after our cats, and met frequently to share a cocktail. I miss him terribly, and the world is darker place without him.

We will get that cocktail later my friend. I'll be looking forward to it.

The first time I met Tim was two years ago. I had just been transferred to a new operation at OU and he was incredibly helpful in showing me the ropes and getting me used to working at the residential colleges. He was always so funny and light hearted. He was one of the best chefs I have ever known and I definitely learned a lot from him. Things will definitely never be the same at work without him. Until we meet again my friend.

My heart goes out to Tim’s family and friends. Tim Bob was a part of the team when our building first opened, through all of the craziness and shenanigans, good times and bad times. He will be dearly missed.

Tim and I worked together quite often for the past 3 years at OU. He was nothing but a kind soul who loved having fun. We had many conversations about life and joked quite often about Basmati rice.
I remember when he got his new kitten and he was so very excited and would show pictures to anyone who would look.

Tim, I don’t have the words to say how much you will be missed, but it is a vast amount.
May you Rest In Peace.

One of my favorite memories from my young teen years was camping in Colorado with family. One year, we had quite a bit of fun helping a family of chipmunks and one *particularly* fat and greedy ground squirrel completely stock up for winter in a single week. I distinctly remember Tim with crackers all over his knees and a chipmunk stealing crackers right out of his shirt pocket!

Tim was one of the funniest people I know, always quick to laugh and quick with the puns. I will miss him very much.
