Tim cherished his family and showed his dedication to them by spending much of his time with his wife, children and grandchildren.

Tim also enjoyed gardening, completing his “honey-do” lists, Bible Study Fellowship, Promise Keepers and a good song or joke.
He was a man of great faith. While he had plenty of hobbies, he devoted much of his time feeding the homeless through Christ Nourishes Ministry.
Tim will be greatly missed by all who knew him. His tireless love and devotion were evident in his final weeks and days.
