I didn't know Timothy but grew up across the street on Harmon Drive in Paramus from his dad Billy and the rest of the Rice family. We were kids, but knew theirs was a family of strong bond, faith, and love. Please accept my deepest condolences for your very sad loss. Fran Albin Cronin

Timmy was a great guy, an awesome person to talk to. I remember when I did my internship at the Hackensack Fire Dept in 2015 and he was the MPO of Engine Company 4 2nd platoon. He was great to learn from and a great fireman. RIP LT

Time was one of the greatest. He was someone who always put family first, sacrificed everything for others, and always made all around him smile. We will all miss Tim and know that he is protecting others in heaven now and will always be watching over his beloved family.
