Tim had an outgoing personality, who enjoyed meeting and talking to new people. He never met a stranger and would make anyone feel welcome.

In his free time, Tim loved playing golf and relished cheering on the Red Sox with his grandsons. Above all else, Tim loved his family with his whole heart. Tim will be deeply missed but fondly remembered for his quick wit, sense of humor and love for his family.
