    He will always be Uncle Butch to me, I don’t know what he thought of that nickname, but that’s all we’ve ever called him. I don’t see any of you very often, but the love he felt for his family was always easy to see in his eyes and hear in his words. One of my few memories of him is from when we were all at the farm getting it ready to sell, and he was working on getting this 3 foot across rock into the minivan. I offered to help, he declined with the reason that there would be fewer smashed fingers if he just did it himself. I asked him why in the world he was putting a giant rock in the car, he said Glor always liked sitting on that rock, and he was taking it home to her. That was the most romantic thing I’ve ever seen anyone do.

    Tim was a great man that I knew my whole life. He always welcomed anyone into his home. He will be missed by many.

    Met Tim in Loveland, Colorado shortly after he met my sister Gloria. Used to talk to him a lot about “the powers that be”. Built his house in Cedar Springs all by himself with just some help on the foundation from Harold. He wouldn’t let them drain the swamp. Everyone’s unique, but Tim was uniquely unique. Seems like yesterday that Gloria passed, but it’s been five years. End of an era for me. RIP.
