Tim grew up as a farm boy. He enjoyed hunting, building things, sports, cars, his son’s athletics, and gardening. He was blessed with a green thumb in any garden he came into contact with. He was also a huge UT Vols football and MLB Red Sox fan. Tim was everyone’s No. 1 fan and made every single person he came in contact with feel loved, except the umpires at his son’s baseball games when they made a bad call.
Tim attended The Bridge Fellowship Church in Lebanon and was a member of The National Rifle Association. He had a very likable personality and was a very sociable person, never meeting a stranger. He was passionate about everything he did and believed in whether it was religion, family, sports or politics.
A Celebration of Life service was held Jan. 15 at the Bridge Fellowship Church in Lebanon.
