June 22, 2019


It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share that Tim unexpectedly took his own life and passed away on the evening of June 3rd, 2019. Our family is in shock and filled with grief as we try to navigate through this incomprehensible tragedy, which we may never fully understand. As we face this incredibly challenging journey ahead, we have found some peace through prayer, and knowing that he is in heaven, relieved of the personal pains that he had been quietly battling. 

We cannot begin to express how truly touched and blessed we are by the outpouring of love, support, help and prayers received the past few weeks. We are forever grateful for all of our family and friends who stand by us during this time. 

We remember Tim for being a natural conversationalist. He had a true gift of making instant connections with others, leaving a lasting impression on their lives even after just one conversation. This is because he loved to laugh and find common ground with whomever he was speaking with. In the end, he always made a new friend. He had a brilliant mind and was the ultimate engineer who could troubleshoot and fix anything. He was an incredible husband and father who loved to bring laughter and humor into the household through his pranks and jokes. He also cherished quality time spent with his family, which often meant taking adventures outdoors, including boat camping to remote destinations. Tim was generous with his gifts and talents, always making himself available to help others. Many could say he was the most genuine person you met. 

Tim left an imprint on the hearts of so many and will be greatly missed.
