He worked for Martin Founders Service for 10 years. In his pastime, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, bird watching and working on equipment. One of his most proud accomplishments was digging a lake size pond for his family. Tim was a lover of exotic birds and animals and enjoyed breeding and raising them, he also enjoyed rebuilding computers, listening to music and singing. Above all, he loved spending time with his family and playing with his grandchildren. Tim was funny, outgoing and humble. Appropriately nicknamed “Bionic Man” for in his short time on Earth he had endured so much and was still alive to tell his stories, he was fiercely loyal to his friends and family. We will always remember him as a loving father, a best friend, and a wonderful grandfather. His presence in our lives will be sorely missed. When you think of Tim, celebrate the good memories you have of him. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.
