I can't tell you how saddened I am to hear about Tim's passing. Tim and I got to know each other working together at Hornsby's. We worked some remodeling crews together and became good friends. I remember parties at the Hayes house out in the garage and Tim playing his air guitar. All I have is great memories of our times together. Except of course when he had a few too many and would get in my car and try to drive my stick shift, which he didn't know how to drive :) My condolances to his daughters, mom, sisters and the rest of the family. May God's peace be with you all.

Tim was a friend and teammate. I played with and against him for many years of slow pitch softball. He was the best slow pitch pitcher I ever saw. He was always fun to be around and was a good competitor.
He will be missed .
