My deepest condolences to Terry and Tim's entire family at their loss. Tim was a good friend and we would get together every few months for dinner or lunch. I had recently just talked to him days before he fell to confirm when he would be coming down to Florida and when we could expect to get together. While wintering down here in Florida, we would get together to play golf, have drinks, or go out to eat, or have him over for Toni's homemade pasta which he so appreciated. He was the BEST sergeant the EPD ever had, and I was proud to call him my boss, friend and brother. Until we meet again CHIEF, God Speed. RIP, and save me a seat. Love ya. Bill and Toni Lehmann

I had the privilege of working for Tim a number of years. He was a great guy to work for. If he had to " straighten" you out you had it coming. Then it was forgotten he truly will be missed. My condolences to his family and many friends R.I.P. Chief

I have so many childhood memories of big Tim. My grandpa and I would go up Euclid square mall at Dillards to see him often. He was one of a kind and will be greatly missed!! All of you are in my thoughts and prayers

Even though I outranked Tim for most of my career at EPD, I always had this feeling that somehow he was my boss. A great guy, a good police officer, who was able to strike that balance between advocating for the public while still supporting his officers. I am proud to be able to call him friend, and he will be missed terribly. To his family, which he loved, my condolences to you all. The world is worse off with him not in it. Rest in peace, and hit 'em straight, Chief. Dave and Elaine Maine
