Have fond memories of Tim at summer family gatherings in Minnesota and Iowa when young. Tim was my older cousin that I admired and looked forward to seeing. Recall Tim being a good swimmer, golfer and talented ball player. Seemed to have lost touch in later years when we moved to California, but will always remember his good nature, humor, mischief and friendship. Thoughts and prayers to Aunt Gloria, Cheryl, wife and family.

So many great times together, it's never easy to say goodbye. I will always cherish those special moments. Until we meet again my friend.

Very fond memories of Tim ... from having a huge crush on him in my early teens, to working together at the carpet store. Tim was definitely one of a kind. A great guy.
Love you Tim, rest in peace until we meet again my friend.

Dear Tim, You were a dear friend as well as a great caring friend to our family. You were always willing to help when we needed you. You always put a smile on my dear brother Rick's face. Our family will miss you dearly. My Dad once commented that once you were Tim's friend, you were his friend for life. He coined you "blue eyes" and those eyes and smile and humor will be missed! I wish you had been here much longer.
My deepest sympathy to Gloria, your sister, wife and children. God bless.

Tim was a good buddy of mine when we were early teenage kids in Fort Dodge. We always had a lot of laughs as we tried to teach ourselves the unlearnable game of golf, smoked our first cigarettes, perhaps drank an adult beverage or two, and plotted our way to get dates with girls. Although we drifted apart as we aged, I was lucky to have experienced his friendship and I will always remember him fondly. I wish his family all the best. Kurt Fawkes
