Tim will really be missed. He was one of our best friends. He was always on call to help whenever he was need no matter how small or big the projects were. We will miss sharing those vacations together with him and Linda. So thankful for our last one in Cancun. It will never be topped. Wonderful memories will always be with us.

I was lucky enough to know Tim & Linda since I was 14 years old. Linda and I worked for the same florist.
I can remember Uncle Tim playing on his guitar “Momma don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys” in their apartment on Forest Park Avenue.
They built their first home in Hanover PA. I was there when James was born and took care of James while they were working. I have been blessed to have both of them in my life. They have been my dear friends for 46 years now.
Uncle Tim I know you are in Heaven now with James, Papa Joe, and your parents. I will greatly miss you.
I thank God that I had the time I had with you and I will see you again one day.

My friend Tim will be greatly missed. There is a reason for everything. God took Tim for a reason. We may never know until we see him on the golden streets of heaven one day.

How can you say goodbye to Tim, what an inspiration to all he met. He taught me to “close the deal” and “always deliver on your promises.” Everytime i planned to visit Tim & Linda was like the night before Christmas. Couldn’t wait to see him and Linda! Look down on me Tim and ill see you soon enough!! We will spread your love the way you did. Darrell & Susan Cooper
