He was currently employed with Delta Constructors. He previously worked for CH2MHill and PGS Onshore. He enjoy life in Alaska so much he decided to move himself and Kathy up there in 2006 making a home that he has shared with many of his visiting family and friends. Tim always enjoyed tinkering in the work shop building and fixing whatever needed it. Tim’s favorite hobbies included fishing, hunting and sharing many laughs with his family and friends. Kathy joked that he may have passed to due to “no fish in the river” the last time he was home. The fact is that he loved his family unconditionally, they always came first to him. He made a difference his whole life in everything he put his efforts in. Everyone that knew him would say he gave his all in everything he did.
