Our parents were close so we made numerous trips to Lipan from Beaumont. Tim was always a constant playmate with my little sister, they both were "Cotton tops" and a hand full. When we moved to Yuma, soon follow Uncle Roy and herd. Tim has always been a good cousin, on one of his road trips to AZ we had Tim over for dinner, my wife enjoyed hearing his stories of the younger years. Tim will be missed by so many, it may have been his time, but it was to damm early for me, but wasn't my call. May his family know that Tim was loved by many and his leaving leaves a great big hole in a lot of hearts.

Some of my earliest childhood cousin memories are with Tim! We probably got into more trouble than the average kids😁Here is one episode, we walked our little white haired butts to one of the canals in Yuma that we weren't supposed to go to by ourselves. We may have been 7 maybe 8. After swimming for no telling how long we found some jars and collected a gazillion tadpoles. Well in a few weeks our tadpoles became frogs , enough to open a frog farm😂 Aunt Mary and Mother was soooo mad at us! Don't remember if we got a good butt whooping but probably 🥰RIP Timmy ❤️

My deepest condolences to Tim's family. I'm so sorry for your loss. I've known Tim for only little over a year. Tim had a very quiet nature at first but after a few more conversations, his kind and genuine character shined out. Every time I spoke with him he talked about his family! He would light up and smile then pull out his cell phone to proudly show his latest photos of his family. My prayers are with your family during this very difficult time.
