Tim was an active member of Bethel Baptist Church in Locust. He served as an assistant youth leader and Sunday school director for many years. The youth lovingly called him “Grouch”. To this day, many still refer to him by that cherished nick name. Tim loved helping cook Wednesday night meals and Men’s breakfast.
Tim’s greatest joys were cooking, baking and camping at the beach with his family. His ultimate joy was being “PawPaw” to Maksen and Jett.
