Growing up, Mr. Hurley would condone the loud music, long hair and general mischief we would drag his youngest son into. He would smile and give advice we didn't want to hear. He would ask us to be safe and always was a true man. I am proud to have known him. Heaven is a better place now. Good bless the Family and please keep them in your prayers. Love you Brian! You have made your Dad proud.

I have so many memories of my coworker and friend Tim it’s hard to pick out one. All I can say is Tim was a great guy. He was a fun guy to work with and I was honored to work with him thru the almost 40 years at the RRB. I will always have fond memories of Tim. I know that he is in a better place now. God bless him! I am praying for his family and friends.

I worked with Tim for so many years at the RRB. He was always good for a laugh or a funny take on the news of the day. I am so sorry for the loss of this great guy. He brightened the world.
