With Colleen and his family at his side, Tim passed peacefully surrounded by music and roses. Tim was happiest spending time in his gardens - planting seeds or tending his roses, and watching his flowers grow. His neighbors fondly referred to him as "The Flower Man". When Tim wasn't in his gardens, he was traveling the world. He was always planning the next trip. So even though we lost Tim too early and will miss him forever, we are comforted knowing that he decided it was time for another great adventure. We'd also like to thank all of Tim's friends for their thoughts and prayers and for loving him so much.Service & Reception Info
