Tim was pipe fitter and engineer by trade. He loved to hunt and fish with his family and friends. Tim was the best “Grill Master” and he and Betty would host many holiday and special events at their home in Harmontown. He enjoyed good country music and was known to grab Betty and dance the night away.

T-Bone, as he was known to his closest family and friends, always had a smile, a kind word, and a twinkle in his dark brown eyes. He spent the last year sitting on his porch on Church Street with Betty and waving to everyone who passed by.

The celebration of life service was held Monday, Sept. 5,  at Byhalia UMC. Interment was in Byhalia Cemetery.
