so very sad to hear of Tim's passing. we spent some of the best years of the Red Brick Inn together. the "Big Guy" was a driving force in the Sunday in the Park program, remodeling the tavern, and a great friend and mentor. his laughter was loud, and his temper was hot, but a better friend you would never have !! rest in peace, until we meet again.

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.........
Old Irish Blessing..............Be at Peace Tim
