I used to work with Tim, loading trucks at night at RPS, while we both attended OSU Mansfield. His strength and ethic were matched only by his own good nature. Many miserable nights in the bottom of a broiling hot, or frigidly cold semi-trailer were made bearable by his great sense of humor, stories, and pure ability to listen. I simply do not remember him without a smile. We solved all of the world’s problems and mysteries while in those trailers, building walls out of boxes. One thing he told me that I will never forget was his amazement at how many people avoid eye contact while passing. He told me it was because they were afraid they might have to smile or say hi.
