We had our WWE tryout together back in 2006. He nicknamed me the Church mouse of the ring b/c I am so tiny and you couldn't hear me coming :-) We became friends after this great experience shared at WWE. Very saddened to have found out about this. RIP my friend.

Timmy, It took me some time to believe the news that you're gone.. I met you when I was 12 at my cousin's house, when we used to watch WWF together in the livingroom.. We were friends and it grew over the years, but we sucked at the long distance thing and at staying in touch, but still you would call.. and I always knew I'd hear from you again.. sometimes we spoke for a few minutes, sometimes longer, sometimes you would just call and play our song over the phone, and once you even just showed up and my house and surprised me for my birthday LOL, me and my mom couldn't believe our eyes. . You were very sweet, and funny, I only knew you outside of the ring, not as Tim Arson, just as Calkins. We always said we'll catch up and meet up "one day", and now that day will never come.. I'm so sorry that I'll never hear your voice or see your face again, but you will always remain as a part of my history and I'm my heart. I remember at the end of every conversation you would say -"Make no mistake, I'm coming for you".. we'll Timmy, you're wrong, you will not be coming by, but I know I'll see you again "one day".. funny how your guest signing book closes tonight, and I'm the last one to sign it.. You were waiting for me to say goodbye. . My condolences to your beloved son, family, friends, and fans.. I'll always think of you, love you, and miss you. . And I know why -for you!

Tim, you gave Coryanne back her laughter and smiles. Never a day went by when I saw you, that I didn't at least smile at the antics you did. You knew how to lift spirits, even when you were hurting. You will always be remembered. Thank you. Mom

Tim,
I found out all too late. Prayers to your family and friends with my deepest condolences. I will always remember all the good times wrestling and traveling. You helped teach me the ropes on becoming a good worker and for that I am eternally grateful. I'm happy to have known you and the boys and I'm regretful for being away for too long. This is a sad day but you will always be remembered. You always had "it" and gave us something to look up to. I will miss you, brother.
