We might have had our differences Tim but together we produced an amazing son Ian and according to my sisters you were their favourite brother-in-law (Captain America !).

Condolences to the family and friends.
I’ve known Tim since 1974, where we first met in USNAWF St. Mawgan UK.
After a little while since I arrived at the command, Tim imparted some Pennsylvania wisdom to me. You see, he was a lower rank and I was a head-strong E-5. Tim invited me into a small room we used as a calibration lab. He was letting me know, in the Timmy Lynn stile that my leadership skills needed a lot of work and proceeded to give me examples. That took a lot of personal integrity (guts). That could’ve gone really bad for Tim. After that we developed a close friendship that lasted through out our personal lives and careers.
One of the happiest memories I have, is when Tim was telling me abort falling in love with Lesley. How he was over the moon happy and that she loved Tim’s son Ian as well.
The saddest I’ve seen Lesley and Tim was when he called to tell me that Ian had lost his battle with cancer. The death of their child at any age was truly devastating.
Tim and Lesley, like most marital teams have had to endure great joy and pain.
While my friend has gone to heaven and to join his son Ian, our thoughts and prayers are with Lesley and The families that he touched.
May our Lord Bless you and keep you.
Fair winds and following seas, Shipmate.
We have the watch.
