Condolence & Memory Journal

I've never met Tim, but I have spent the past 8 or 9 years playing computer games with tippman1. Tipp and I have spent hours playing Battlefield, talking about computers, technology, firearms, and subjects less important. I've enjoyed his photos of hawks that he's taken at work. I've been amazed at his youtube videos. (Now some of those are full of explosive content!) And I don't think that I've ever know anybody that drives a snow plow.

Whenever anyone needed advice on a computer issue or other electronics, Tipp was the one we went to. I've purchased equipment on his recommendation and got some good stuff! He has always been helpful and friendly to everyone in our gaming group.

I'll miss him. Even though we never met face to face, I considered him a friend and life is better because of him! I look forward to seeing him at the next spawn point.

I was saddened by the news I received. While I never met Tim, I played computer games and laughed with "tipp" for over 12 years. He will truly be missed. My prayers condolences are with his family and friend,

To the family and friends of Tim... I'll always know him a Tipp through a gamin group from a few years ago. I'll miss hearing that distinctive voice, and the wise cracks he would throw out. I'll miss you buddy.

Deepest sympathy to the family friends and coworkers. He was a good person always had that cute ornary smile.

It took me all week for it to sink in that I/we won't see Tim every week - every day. I have never written on one of these sites before because I never know what to say. So.... I went home and mowed the lawn which gave me time to think as Tim could attest. :) When I got off the lawn mower I found paper & pen to write down my thoughts & since I don't have a computer at home I drove back to work to share. We all know friends who have gone too soon......God called Timmy way too early but we know he is okay. I can't be there tomorrow because I have a wedding to go to in Michigan and I hope the Reed family will forgive me for coming early to say "I'll see you soon Timmy". I just want to say what a giving & caring person he was - always there for everyone. He would come plow my parents driveway when he was near because he knew I lived a "few" miles away. He set my parents head stone straight at Lindenwood in time for my Mom's funeral because I asked him. Who else would do that! I hope your rescues kitties will be taken care of & I know your Whammys always work every week. I will still call on you for them as I have for years - I did it Wednesday and it worked ! Miss you, Anne
