Tim enjoyed spending time with his “grandboys” as he called them. He was able to take them golfing, and starting a yearly tradition of picking out a Christmas tree and cutting it down. He was looking forward to his grandsons coming out to fish his pond this summer.
The last years of his life he enjoyed spending time with his wife Carol, his family and friends. He enjoyed going to the “office” and playing cards with his friends and helping his good friend Gary Kriegel.
