Uncle Tim was always the life of the party, a true Irishman with a heart of gold and a wonderful personality. I have so many cherished memories of him when I was just a lil girl and those memories grew throughout my lifetime. I will miss him dearly but my faith knows that he is with his loved ones and someday we will all be united again

Tim was the salt of the earth, the kind of family man America relies upon. He was generous, personable and loving, most proud of his wife, son and grand-daughters. Tim might have been the proudest, funniest, most loving and attentive grand-father in history and a must-have presence at all family gatherings. Thank you, Tim, for your friendliness, humor, warmth and most of all, for the great gift of our son-in-law. You will be greatly missed.
