On January 7, 1994, Tim and Rebecca had their first child Sarah Paulene. She was his great joy, he loved to dance with her and show her the outdoors. His son Bridger Timothy was born on July 18, 1997. He was his “little mini me” and grew to share Tim’s passion for outdoor adventure. Tim loved the mountains of Montana and enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with his family.
One of his greatest enjoyments was fishing in Alaska with his family. Another one of his joys was taking his granddaughters fishing for tiny bass and trout in the Laurel pond. Tim was an accomplished hunter. He had numerous successful hunts including a trophy moose, many elk, deer, antelope and fowl. He was also happiest in his fishing boat going down the Yellowstone and Bighorn Rivers. He enjoyed a peaceful ride on his 4-wheeler exploring the trails and roads of the Beartooth Mountains. He had a great love for the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He had three throughout his life, Otis, Jessie and Piper. He loved to take them hunting and swimming in the creek.
The most important moment of his life was when he put his faith in Jesus Christ at age 22 through the friendship of his mentor and friend Brent. We imagine Tim now exploring the trails and mountains in Heaven with perfect peace in the presence of our Lord Jesus.
