I received the 9-8-12, Norwalk paper today in Columbus, OH today.A 2 hour drive that takes 10 days by mail.
I was saddend to read about Tims passing. I dont know any of you but Tim lived just a few houses away from me while we were growing up.
We played together 7 days a week from early grade school through high school. WE played baseball almost every day or listened to 45 rpm records.
I knew Russ and Rose as well as I knew my own parents. We played every day with Lucky his beagle,and Ki Ki his dalmation. We even went to the first Elvis Presley concert in Ohio. We lost touch after my grand mothers funeral in 1981, as I worked and lived all over the USA working for Coca Cola. My memories of him are different than yours but if you want to know anything about him when he was growing up Ill be happy to tell any of you. Respectfully, Herb Gallup.

So sorry for your loss. I am sure Tim will be watching from above and will always be with you in spirit. Tim was a fun loving man and loved by all who knew him. Trenton I am sure grandpa will be at your side when your are playing golf. He would of been proud of you Thursday knowing you still played golf caring the burden that he was gone. Trenton every time you see a coin on the ground pick it up because it is grandpa thinking of you and it will bring a smile to your face knowing he is still here. Coins will show up in strange places. The picking up coins has helped me losing my dad and I found out he really is never gone but always with me. God be with you all during this trying time
