Went to Kentwood High School with Tim. Enjoyed meeting up with him again while we were on our 50th reunion planning committee together. Very dear friend who will be missed by many classmates. Sue, you're in my prayers and I pray that you and your family are blessed by God's love and mercy at this sad time.

I have so many memories working with Tim through out the years. He would always walk into a customer's place and take charge. He always knew what to do with anything that came his way. He forgot what most will never learn. What a loss. Condolences to his family.
