Remembering Tim from the Pueblo Chieftain/Star Journal. I had the pleasure of working with Tim for many years. He was a stereotyper, I was a printer. God Speed, Tim. Condolences to your family.

Donna and family, Words aren't enough to explain how much I'm going to miss my favorite Broncos fan. We all had a good time talking over the games. I feel very honored to have gotten to know Tim and to be one of his caretakers. I will miss our "bs" sessions. Tim was a wonderful man..Donna is a wonderful woman. I wish God's comfort and blessings to all. GO BRONCOS!

Donna and family, we extend our sympathy to you all at this sad time. We met Tim and Donna when we moved here twelve years ago, the same year they did, and have been friends since. Tim was a kind and gentle soul who was always appreciative and truly a great man. We shared many happy times together. He will always remain in our hearts. Cherish the wonderful memories in your hearts.

Dear Donna Jo,
We were very sad to learn earlier today that your wonderful Tim has passed away. My earliest memories of him, reinforced during our later visit to you in Pueblo, are that he was one of the world’s truly kind, gentle, and thoughtful persons, of whom there are all too few. Now, sadly, there is one less. There is little one can say to lend solace to you who has suffered so great a loss.  Know only that you are in our thoughts, and he in our memories. The essence of immortality is that he shall live on in the memories of all those who loved him, as did we.
