He attended School in White Fox before entering the work force. He married the Love of his Life Faye on March 3, 1978. As Tim accepted Faye’s Hand in Marriage he also gained a Wonderful Son named “Wes” then a year later along came his Sweet Baby Girl that they Loved to call “Our Doll” Kyla-Dawn. Tim cherished both his children dearly and was always so very Proud of them both.
Tim was always a very Dedicated Worker who loved and took pride in whatever job he was employed at.
