His favorite baseball team was the Houston Astros and he could tell you every statistic for the Astros; but he was most proud of and adored his two sons; Tim and Zach and was so very proud of all their accomplishments.  Tim was a loving father and grandfather who enjoyed spending every chance he could vacationing with his sons and grandchildren.

    I can still see Tim driving his tractor into the creek behind Grandmas and Grandpas. Still have the video of Tim jumping Bill throwing the ball and Dylan getting hit with the ball. Epic kick ball game and fun time. Wish we could have one more time

      Me too, Sherry- I told Tim that was one of my first memories of him and me ( and he was always getting injured) and then he had to do it again. We had a lot of fun as kids when we lived around or with you guys

    I love all my memories so many Two that I always remember when you had your hair cut into a Mohawk and when we were in Georgia and everyone told me to go into the men’s locker room to tell you to hurry up and I didn’t know it was a men’s locker room. You yelled for me to get out and laughed. I’ll miss you forever and I love you ❤️
