Tim loved his family, outdoors, his cat “Sassy”, and tigers. He had a large tiger collection to include many photos, standalone tigers, tiger cups, tiger knickknacks, tiger everything. He enjoyed car shows to admire the old classics, and was excited to see the old muscle cars. He enjoyed family time to include get togethers at their family cottage.
He enjoyed cookouts, great conversation or just to hang out. He would meet his friends to enjoy long bike rides through the Metroparks. He loved the wildness of nature and the serenity of the peace and quiet of the outdoors. Tim will be missed by many.
