I was fortunate to have Tim and Family as extended family in my life since birth. From my Godmother Billy babysitting me, to Tim tossing me across his mom's pool as a young kid, taking me and my dad to the mud runs, running his old ford 4x4 up the dunes behind Mainland, to later becoming a life mentor as a young man that lead me to my professional passion for Architecture and on the path to a fortunate future. We spent many long days "in the whole" as we would say building pools and dreams. He was a builder by profession but not just for pools...but also for great memories with all that shared his presence, his passion for life, persistence for perfection, and most important a builder of the foundation of good will in all of his relationships.

In life we have physical presence but in passing we can find solidarity in memory. Those memories live on with us all as you let them into your life in your own personal way to bring peace but more importantly to let you know you are not alone in your journey. Tim lives on in memory and in spirit in my life, and I am certain he is there with me in my continued journey as he cheers and advises from above. I wish the same for all that knew him.

May God bless Paige, Timmy, and Billy as they search for there own peace in this difficult time. With great love and admiration for Tim and Family I wish you all peace, strength, and understanding in this time of loss.

Paige - I just read about Tim on Karen Palmer's FB. I am so sorry for your loss. Tim was a great guy and I loved working with him at Waldhauer & Son Custom Pools.

We had great respect for Tim as we met he and Paige as they became house parents at the frat house where our son was a member. Our son not only had them for the house but friends in Christ as well. We are blessed to know Paige and little Tim and we pray that we all see Big Tim again in Eternity. We are here for you for any need. Love you - the Tom Cox Family, Ormond Beach

Our Family sends our deepest condolence to Paige, Little Tim, & Billie of the too early passing of my favorite 2nd cousin Tim Fennell. We grew-up together like brother & sister with older brother Ricki. Our visits back to Fla. from Albuquerque over the years were so unforgetable. Tim gave 101% at whatever he did with people, business, friends, or family. Hold on to all those precious memories I know we will. God be with you during this difficult time.
Our Love,
Vivian & Jon Powers
Christy Garrett, Ashlyn, & Payton Cunico

Tim will be missed by all of us. He was a good friend always no matter where he was. We hadn't seen much of him the past 10 years but knew he was doing what he loved and would hopefully be back in our area someday. We were extremely saddened by the news of his illness. Tim was an amazing example of a good hearted man who loved his family and friends to no end. He left us with heavy hearts but wonderful memories of his time with us. Paige and Timmy, we love you always. There are no words that can take your pain away. Just know that you both have many wonderful friends and that Tim would have wanted you both to live life to the fullest as he did.

Paige and Timmy, you have my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences. I have no idea if Tim had any Irish blood in his family, but since many great Americans do, it's a pretty good bet he did. Ten days after Tim passed, the renowned Irish poet Seamus Heaney did too. His last words to his wife were..."don't be afraid". I hope you can both share that sentiment, and that it will give you strenght. Graham

Paige & Timmy,

I am so very sorry for your loss. It's been years since I've seen any of you, but I have wonderful memories - the last being at Rita & Charlie's house where I enjoyed talking with Tim at length. May God be with you at this time.
