I am thankful for the fun, wild, and crazy times we had together on the streets of old Zone 3! Tim was the ultimate fighter – telling doctors more than 15 years ago when their prognosis was abysmal he wasn’t ready to die and truly fought the good fight. He was one funny dude as well – he could make you laugh right quick. I was extremely blessed to start and end our careers together at JSO, working some of our last years together in Missing Persons.
I would like to offer the family my sincere condolences.
Tim and I along with Pete Fawcett were the Three Amigos during Jr High and High School. He was a funny guy and a great athlete. I am saddened by his passing. I know he fought the good fight for many years. Love and condolences to his family.
Tim will be greatly missed. He was the toughest man ever. What a tremendous fight against cancer! RIP Tim!
