I was shocked to hear of Tim’s sudden passing. We met at the University of Pittsburgh. He was so fun to be around. He was very driven to meet goals. And, had the best sense of humor — and genuine kindness. He was a dear friend. My deepest condolences to all of his loved ones. He was a wonderful person!! I was just looking at old college pictures the other day and his smile in those photos made me smile.

I learned so much from Tim over our 35 year friendship that began in college. He was truly one of a kind: confident, caring, loyal, and free-spirited. I know his loss will be felt deeply by his family and friends but hope the memories we all have of him will comfort us in the years to come.
Rest In Peace Pal.

Timmy was one of the nicest people I have ever known. I can't remember a conversation with him that didn't end in a smile. He was great at what he did and I loved when he delivered flowers to me. He always had some witty comments and left me laughing on his way out of the door. RIP Tim. You sure will be missed. Prayers to all that knew him.

Tim and I met while working on Spin City together in NYC and then we both moved back to LA at the same time. He always made me laugh out loud and gave the hardest, longest BEST hugs. I adored him. There are so many wonderful Tim stories I could share, but here are two that come to mind.

One day in LA he told me to meet him at his apartment because he had to show me something he was really excited about. When I got there he was standing in front of his brand new Passat with a huge grin on his face. He was so proud and excited. I screamed and jumped in and we drove all over town blasting music. He loved that the dash lit up with blue lights so we had to drive until it got dark so he could show me the full effect. That was the best night just driving all over Hollywood and through the canyon into the Valley singing and laughing.

Another memory I will cherish is the time he wanted me to go with him to look at open houses because he was thinking about buying a condo in the Valley. He said I had to pretend we were engaged and this was going to be our first home as husband and wife because the seller would love that story. We had an absolutely hysterical afternoon playing it up. By the last condo our impending marriage story had morphed into the ridiculous and we could barely make it through the back and forth banter without bursting out in laughter. We had to shut ourselves in a bathroom at one point because we were laughing so hard at something insane he had just told the selling agent. He was so much fun!

I will miss him and his amazing hugs. My sincere and warmest condolences to all of his family and friends.

Tim was a wonderful man. We worked together on Spin City and he took work very seriously but also knew how to have fun. He was a good friend. I am glad we reconnected recently. I hope he is happy on his next journey. I am sorry for all his loved ones. We were all better for knowing him.

Timmy was more than a cousin ... he was my best friend ... I will miss our near daily texting and cherish all the memes we would send each other competing for the funniest most appropriate one ... he always called me Cynthia but coming from him it sounded just right ... Timmy was the most exuberant person I ever met and was wise beyond his years ... he had a quick solution for everyone’s situation. Timmy was a true friend to all he met. I will miss you greatly Timmy as will all who knew you. Enjoy being with all the family that were waiting for you with open arms ... laughing and saying “here comes Timmy !!! “

My deepest sympathies to the Hardin family. I had not seen Timmy since high school, but I have wonderful memories of being in the band together — band camp and football games and parades! He was a light force and personality plus!

I was Tim’s friend.
We met in Tamiment resort and country club in the Poconos in 1989.
We shared the same room in « the French Cottage » for few weeks and spent so many night talking about nothing and anything ... listening Erasure !
And then we lost contact for ten years ... and we met again in 2002 in Los Angeles when I was doing a trip around the world ... such great memories when he came to pick me up at the youth hotel from Hollywood after I let him a message on his phone ...
We were talking to see us again since few years but his hips operations delayed our project ... life is cruel.
Tim was such a lovely and smart person. His death break my heart.

If someone from the family could write me on my emails adress ? Ericdujardin99@glail.com
I have a request if it’s possible ... when I saw tim in LA he showed me a small photo album from the time in Tamiment from our parties and birthday with everybody ... if it’s possible to scan or photograph some of the pictures inside ? All this pictures just talk to the people that were at this events ...

Tim will always be in my heart. Without knowing it he has been a guide in my life.

I was Tim's high school French teacher. I was blessed with privilege of getting to know him and Tammy as well as his parents. Tim was creative, loving and intelligent. I just came across pictures from our field trip in 1983 to Montreal and Quebec. God has a very special place in heaven for him. I offer my deepest condolences to his mom, Tammy and best friend. God bless you.
