Dear Luchessi Family,
I am so saddened to hear of this untimely loss to you all. Crestwood Swim club was an amazing place with amazing people. And Tim was the absolute "nice"guy who was hard working, happy and someone you always wanted to be around. He was a leader to his peers. I worked for Tim and was coached by Tim and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to know such a great person.
My heart goes out to all of you. Though I have not been in his presence for a very long time, my heart grieves with you. He was a giant to me and someone I looked up to. My God comfort you in you grief.

Dear Luchessi family,
I knew Tim through our neighborhood, St. Elizabeth, Crestwood Pool, work, and Fre's Flies softball Team. Tim did not have a bad bone in his body. He was such a kind-hearted and loving man. I feel blessed to have known him and will alwaays remember his smile! I know you are all grieving his loss, but be comforted by the fact that he is saved by his faith in his Savior Jesus Christ. We believers will see him once again in Heaven where we will once again see his smile. May God bless you all in your sadness.

I have just learned of Tim's passing from Mollie who called me today after coming across a business card. The friendship that Tim and I developed over the years as he came to Rochester, Mn to work Mayo Clinic events will be cherished. He is a good man with a kind heart that he freely shared with others. Just last month when he was here, he proudly talked about his family and the joy of the upcoming wedding celebration that he was so looking forward to. There is no doubt that he will be there in spirit and his love will be present for everyone in attendance. The addition of grandchildren to the family also brought a quick smile to his face. Family was very important to him. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. I will miss his friendship and Rochester visits. Sincerely, David B. Silker

I have many fond memories of Tim at Crestwood Swim Club. We swam together, lifeguarded together and coached together (I was the diving coach while Tim was the swimming coach). He touched the lives of many and will be missed by all that were fortunate enough to know him. My condolences to the Lucchesi family.

My prayers go out to all of you who knew and loved Tim. He was truly an amazing man! His passion was infectious in all facets of life.

I worked with Tim for over 10 years in the book business. Our conversations were mostly about work, but I always could tell in Tim's recount of how things were going, how much he loved his family. On earth you all are what he treasured.

Dear Mollie and family, I have nothing but wonderful memories of Tim from our many years together at Crestwood Swim Club. He was my inspiration in and out of the pool; my employer, my friend, and a tremendous model and mentor to me, especially when my own father passed unexpectedly at a very young age. A mutual pool friend nicknamed me Smiley, but I cannot recall a day when Tim was without a great big smile of his own. He was truly a spirit-filled, model Christian human being, and I am so grateful to have had the privilege of being his friend. He will be greatly missed by so many. May God's blessings and hope fill your family's hearts.

Mollie and the Lucchesi Families, can not begin to express our condolences enough for the unexpected loss of Tim. Although we all went down our separate paths as we grew up, you guys are always in our thoughts. Some of the best memories we had as kids was to be able to be with our cousins in STL. Tim always made us laugh even we were in trouble with the parents. Really going to miss his humor, quick wit and the man he became.
