He saw the world and enjoyed regaling his family with the many colorful adventures he experienced throughout his years of service. He was a self-taught barber, mechanic and horticulturist. This jack-of-all trades never minded imparting unsolicited advice upon anyone within ear shot, but you can guarantee that it would be full of wisdom and good intentions. Tim was always the first to lend a helping hand or loan a few dollars when times were hard. He was eccentric and strong and brave and crazy and smart and so, so good to all who knew him.
