Mr. Lewis Rhea Timberlake
I met this great man when I was 26 at Bank Of America. He Inspired me to fly like an eagle, He dared me to find out exactly what wanted. I am in a change of business and a little lost so I decided to google him. Looking for direction and inspiration from him, I came across his obituary. Mr. Lewis Timberlake is still just as Inspiring in life and IN death. Your words live in me. I remember you when I was 26 and I remember you 7 years later. God bless you Sir. I will find a way or make one! Rest easy
I know this is late but I was looking up Lewis and saw that he passed. I use a quote of his when I talk to audiences.
I've just now discovered this obituary (during one of my Google searches checking up on Mr. Timberlake). He lived like few people know how, with a positive attitude and a great understanding for everyone he met. My time working for Mr. Timberlake was brief, but memorable. He was an inspiration, a mentor, and in many ways like a grandfather I never had. Because of this, I am very sad to know he has passed. I don't personally know a man still alive who loved his family more. I remember something his daughter once said, which I heard via Georgia Ann and will paraphrase: Dad was gone a lot, but then he was still always there for us. What a testament. This is how I remember him. I have spent the greater part of the last hour looking at the slideshow...those are wonderful pictures. Much love to the Timberlake family.
God bless and keep Lewis Timberlake in our minds and hearts. I also have know and meet with Lewis regularly since 1984. His wisdom and humor are legendary!!
Lewis touched my life in 1982 at a workshop he led in Lexington, KY. He gave me an idea that helped change the life of one of my children. I will always be grateful.
He continued to send me "Letters from Lewis" after my promotion and move to Chicago.
He made a difference in many lives. A great legacy.
