I knew Tim from our elementary years, he & my brother were good friends. I would run into him once in awhile on his errand trips to Robinson at different places. Our sympathy goes out to each of you, may you find comfort during these difficult days ahead by knowing you are lifted up in prayer.

Tim was one of the first friends I made in Robinson that wasn't affiliated with law enforcement, when I came here in 1991. I started deer hunting soon after, along with Dave Marqua, on Tim's property. I made some great memories with Tim, and will cherish his friendship forever. We need more Tim's in this world. My heart goes out to you Lanita and Billy. I remember leading an 8-month pregnant Lanita to her deer hunting spot in November of 1996. Tim was so worried about you, but I could tell he was so happy that you were taking part in something that was part of his very core. Rest in Peace Tim, we'll sure miss you.

The 'spidey' senses were running over-time. Know I was thinking - and still am thinking - of you all.

Our boys spent their toddler-hood together. Mine still talk about you and Tim. I think they were more excited when Tim got home than when I arrived for pick up!

Sending hugs.

Cindy and Family

Jeanette our hearts go out to you & Tim's family. When we went to Marty Blankenbecker's visitation there was a picture of Marty, Tim & my brother Don in their football uniforms. Both Marty & Tim have gone too soon. We cannot remove the heartache you're suffering but we will surround you with love & great memories .

Lanita, I always had a good time with Tim riding the school bus and attending Flat Rock School. Don't believe our paths ever crossed after high school, but I never forgot him. I knew you had married Tim when you left Newton years ago. You have been in Cindy and my thoughts a lot over the years also. Always considered you a great neighbor and sure hated it when you left Newton. You are sure in our hearts and prayers at this time of loss.

"Cooter" is going to be so missed. He always had a heart of gold and a soft spot for the underdog. Beginning with Flat Rock Grade School, he was a dear friend who has never been forgotten. I'll always remember him tearing up the gravel road in that big, black truck. May he keep on "mudd'n". My prayers and condolences to the family, especially his wife, son and mother.

DiAnne and I knew Tim way back in the day. Tim, Charlie Tuttle and I spent a night during the blizzard of 1978 stuck in a snowdrift on a country road when we worked for the County Highway Department. When we got dug out we went and stayed at Tim's grandmother's house. He cooked a ham with pineapple slices and we watched Larry Bird and Indiana State basketball on tv. Although I haven't seen him in a long time, he was a great guy with a big heart and he was a friend. Our sincerest sympathy and Love goes out to you all. With Love, Jim and DiAnne McDaniel
