I worked with Tim for several years in the press room in the back of the Z building. We also shot together at the Cedar Falls Gun Club. I always enjoyed our kidding back & forth while working together. I lost contact with Tim after retirement, but that didn't mean I forgot him. I considered him a friend & am very sorry he has pasted. My sympathy goes to his family.

Tim was like family to me. I loved him. I will always remember the twinkle in his eyes when he got tickled about something. You could easily win him over by bringing sweets to him. I will miss him...RIP my dear friend. My sincere condolences to Janette, Kelly & family.

Prayers to you and your family Janette! I already miss not seeing him go to the mailbox and driving by as he always had to honk or wave as he passed by. Please let us know if you need anything Janette. We are just across the fence!
