Born in Winchester on November 13, 1964 he was an amazing Godly family man. He told his nurses that he wanted to continue the fight so that he could just be with his family and he was very excited that his son and daughter-in-law were planning to adopt his first grandchild and he would be called Poppy.
Tim graduated from Tennessee School for the Blind in Donelson, Tennessee in 1984, he was born legally blind, however he never allowed that little inconvenience to limit him in anyway. He was always a hard worker and a good provider for his family.
