You will be missed Tim more than you ever would have imagined. We have been neighbors and friends for many years but in recent years have become very close.Being proximate in age we shared common values and ideas. We knew each other's routines, needs and weaknesses and relied on each other for assistance when two hands were not enough to get the job done. We worked, laughed and often knew each other's thoughts, our friendship was so unique. Tim was always the one who was there when help was essential, not only for me but for so many. You have as many friends as stars in the sky that your life has touched. Our deepest sympathy and many prayers to Chris and Stacy and their families as well as the many friends dealing with this loss. RIP my dear friend.

Dear Chris, Stacy and family,
Tim was a good man, neighbor, and friend. Whenever he would be out and about and saw any of us he would wave or pull into the drive or stop on the street and say "Hi". There are not enough words to express how greatly he will be missed.

I had the opportunity to meet Tim when I worked at the local elevator in Seville. I also had the privilege of both helping and competing with Tim at the local tractor pulls. I will miss sitting & chatting with him about farming and tractor pulling. There are not enough words to express how greatly he will be missed. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the entire family.
