Tim was a loving father and a good friend always ready with a smile for those in need. He worked for Verizon, first as a dispatcher and then as a line-technician braving harsh weather and fierce winds to keep services going. He was known to do the odd task for an elderly customer on his way out the door.
He enjoyed skeet shooting, archery, and axe throwing with his children and step-children and picking his banjo at the kitchen table. He wanted to live a simple life, with simple demands upon the world where everyone was free to be who they were.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you be yourself without fear, and love without judgement
“So forget about your yesterdays of sorrow
And forget about the darkness you have seen
For there’s only you and me at the edge of an endless sea
And remember that the only time is now.”
