Dear Family, I met Tim my first day at Union High School. We had home room together in Mrs. Fahrian’s English I class. Tim was a tall, good looking, polite and most gals had an instant liking to Tim including me. I remember him playing football and basketball for the Union Hi Ironmen. Being a big guy he helped our team win many games. He was a good sportsman on the playing field and in life in general.
I also remember encouraging you Rita to date Tim when we were table mates in Mr. Brindley’s Chemistry Class. And I remembered encouraging Tim to ask you for a date. You two clicked just like a good Chemistry experiment and the rest is history.
Tim was a fine man and a wonderful husband and family man. I know his absence will be truly missed by all of you his loving family. Tim remains with you in spirit. Let your wonderful memories of Tim help you heal from the grief you are experiencing now. May he rest in peace in the arms of our Loving Lord and savior. My sincere condolences to your Rita, his faithful and loving partner and to your family. Kathy Blake Liming Class of 1957

I am so sorry to hear this. I only met him a few times but from what I got was he was a no nonsense kinda guy. Which I really liked. My prayers go out to you Rita and to all of your family. May Jesus wrap you up into his arms and help you get thru this.
