We didn’t get to see Tim very often after we moved away from Illinois, but thought of him often, especially on his birthday. He was born in the morning of June 27 and our daughter was born around 5:00 the same day. My parents, Frank and Mabel Wrhel, were blessed with 2 grandchildren that day. Our sympathy to all the family.

I remember Tim,.,.,we would run into him on an occasional Friday night at the old Rythm and Blues after he had finished his shift. He and Chip would talk about sports over a few beers ....
He will be missed.
Our sympathies to his entire family and tight hugs all around 🤗
