I'm so sorry for the family and those who loved Tim. Tim was an inspiration in so many ways. You never heard him complain. He had the strongest work ethic of anyone I know. Worked when others would have called out sick. More than anything I will remember him for his unwavering faith, his love of the Lord and his family. Rest in peace, brother. Until we meet again.

So sorry to lose a brother in the Lord but now he walks on streets of gold and he gets to talk with Jesus in person each and every day. Praise God. Sorry for your loss MaryEllen. I remember when you two met at Trinity. You loved him the very first day you laid eyes on him and look at this, 36 years later. Still together. One day together in person with Jesus. Peace to you and RIP brother Tim.

Mary Ellen, I was so sorry to hear about Tim's passing. I've been praying for you all as Tim has struggled with his declining health, and will continue to lift you up to our gracious Lord. Many memories flood my mind as I think about Tim and our time together at Trinity. He is a powerful example of the grace of God changing the life radically and completely. Sorry that we were not able to attend the service, but I am glad that they streamed it. May God's grace sustain you in the days ahead. Blessings! Eric & Teresa Erskine

Maryellen, Nicole and Tiffany and the extended family. our hearts are broken at your loss. Tim was one of the sweetest, soft spoken man we have been privileged to know. We both remember several of his wonderful "sermons". Soft voice did not mean soft message. We loved Tim. We love you and the family. May God keep and bless you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Brother Tim, You're broken body is now One, Whole, and Pure in the Presence of God The Father. You were So Inspirational in the Way you went about your life, never deferring to your ailments But, Always Referring to the Strength you possessed thru The Father! I'll Never forget a line you spoke during one of your sermons I was priveleged to hear that Truly showed your Humor, And your Faith. In the sermon you said: "If you ever see me running, please shoot what is behind me"! It brought the house down BUT, Showed by example that you Never let your predicament Steal Your Joy! God Bless, Brother Tim!
