    It saddens me so hearing of Tim’s passing. It was many years ago that Tim came to work for me and John Brady at Nabholz Construction, we had many good times together at the Jobsites. Myself, Tim and four others were the six-pack crew that went to Alaska at Fort Greeley and constructed 2 buildings for the Army while we were in the Guard @ 55 below 0. As always we had a blast being together laughing and cutting up with one another, I will miss Tim when I think back on those days. Tim was a good man and will be missed by many who knew him. RIP 1st Sgt Perry J. McGinty

    Judy, I will truly miss working with Tim. He was such a kind man. Always so pleasant to talk to. Every time he called for something, he always apologized for bothering me. Always. We are having our yard party on Friday so I won’t be able to attend his service. I have some pictures from last year’s party of Tim I am sending you. If you need me or anyone here at Nabholz, please just call. Cindy Troillet

    Judy, Forrest and I were so heartbroken to hear of Tim’s passing. Forrest has always had nothing but great things to say about Tim. I remember him coming to our house to help hang sheetrock on our ceiling. He was so tall, he just held it in place while everyone put the screws in. I remember him bring so bjg, yet bashful. We will be praying for you and the family. Forrest served in the National Guard with Tkm and Hank Hargis.

    We were so sad to hear of Tim’s passing. We didn’t know that he was ill.Tim was one of our best friends. We had such fun together and he was always made us laugh and laugh. The last time we saw Tim was in 2002 at our 30th class reunion in Fertile. We spent that afternoon and evening with him. Had a blast reminiscing. We planned on going to Arkansas to visit Tim next year when we both retire. You will be missed by all your friends in the Fertile-Beltrami, MN area. Goodbye Tim, Mark & Pat
