Tim was my Office Buddy. When we (meat @ produce dept) invaded his space a few years back he liked to hear my stories of ‘back when’. Just recently he shared some of his boyhood antics with me (don’t go across those railroad tracks his Mom would say.)
Tim was a very sweet and religious man
He Will Be Missed.

I have worked with Tim for several years now and he has always been a kind soul. He worked hard and done a great job. Tim has always been such a kind person and I enjoyed our conversations. We will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.

Bro. Greer was a great man who I learned a lot from. He always had the best object lessons and I still think of our friendship fondly. My condolences to the family on his passing. Praying for peace during this difficult time.

Timmy was very kind soul he was also my family's assistant pastor and my son's super sunday school teacher at Black Oak. He and his family were great encouragements early on when I started living for God. I will never forget his object lessons he always knew how to bring out the word of God so it stayed with you. We had so much fun and many memories thru the years at youth rally's and camp..I remember the lesson about "keep your fork, the best is yet to come" that was many many years ago. He will surely be missed..we all love your family! Love and prayers ❤

I met Tim Several years ago at work and I can honestly say that I have never met a kinder soul. I considered him my Basseball buddy. Me a Reds fan and him a true blue Cubs fan. I am so glad he got to see the Cubbies finally win that world series. Such a kind and sweet person, I can say you truly touched my soul and my heart. On a lighter note I have never seen anyone love Wendy's Frosties as much as him.
