    For many years I, along with others, have had the privilege of being hands and feet for Tim, caring for his lawn and shrubs along with doing numerous projects. What an exceptional man! loving, smart, inventive, hardworking, honest, humorous, generous and religious. We had a business relationship that always felt more like a friendship. He knew how to integrate various aspects of life. We shared a love for nature, history and classical music. I was always learning from him, even by the questions he would ask me about his trees or shrubs that I would have to research. He will be greatly missed, like a great tree that is felled, leaving a big empty space where there once was beauty and the comfort of shade.
