I worked with Tim in 1979 and we quickly became good friends. He piqued my interest in music. He sold me my first real guitar, a 1960's fender Telecaster. He taught me my first Rock licks. and opened up a new world of music to me. I always thought we'd get together again and jam. Peace be with you my old friend.

I worked with Tim in the computer business for years and I found a great guy that over the years showed me his love for bikes and music. I had the pleasure to go to his brother Steve shows and blues got into my veins. Thanks Tim for these years with us and so sorry that you have to go so soon. God bless your soul your family and all people that love you.

So many memories of our youth, sailing on Lake St Clair, just hanging at the house in Livonia making steaks on the BBQ, Frakenmuth beer, Bicycle rides when we were kids. I 'm sorry I lost touch when I moved to Cali. My prayers are with his wife and son who I've never met, but hope I still will. And to his family who will need the support of his friends now more then ever. God Bless you all!
I hope you can "kick out the jams" in his honor.

Dear Sue,
We just learned about Tim's passing and are sending our heartfelt prayers to you and your son. I worked with you and Tim at Highland. Mark and I also belong to the Triumph Riders and would see Tim annually at the Battle of the Brits or one of the motorcycle events. Always smiling, always happy he had nothing but love and pride in his voice when he spoke of you two. You have our deepest sympathies... Denise (Burnham) Roth and Mark Roth.

Tim was one of the first kids my brother and I met, all of his brothers and himself, when we moved to Livonia in 1963. Lots of memories.I will always remember him smiling. A loss to all. My sincere condolences to his family for their loss.

Never thought we would lose Tim so early in life. I was camping with him in northern MI just last month. We had taken many bike trips together over the years and through that time, considered him a close friend.

Tim's personality was spontaneous, living life in the moment. Fist pumps while riding were common and reminded me of when I was a kid, first tackling two wheels in the dirt, in dis-belief that I was actually on a
