I know that there are no words to disgribe the hurt and absence of Tim in your lives. This whole community of friends and family will always wrap their arms around you. I know your faith in Christ is strong even though I'm sure it doesn't seem that way at times now but know that in the days ahead Christ will comfort you Sal. You two had an awesome marriage, and you are pretty much the text book mentor or loving relationships.....Tim will be always be missed. Love you Sal.

I am so saddened to hear about Tim's accident. It seems like just yesterday
when we were neighbors on Elsworth St. Tim was a really precious person and
he had an infectious smile. Thinking of you my dear girl and of your whole family.

Dear Spillers family,
I am so sorry to hear of the tragic loss of such a great guy. Rene' and I worked with Tim at Magnavox. As well as Winnie. We never forgot the loss of Winnie as we were both planning our weddings the same time. Tim was such a great guy, and had such amazing character. His eyes were indeed the window to his soul, and it was warm, and caring. I will never forget him. I feel your grief as I just lost my father 3 weeks ago, and still am trying to come to grips with things. All I can say is lean on your faith. We don't have the answers on this side, but one day it will all make sense. So for now, pray hard, and know you are in many peoples prayers. In His love, and my deepest sympathy...Vicki Torres

When I heard the news, I, as everyone else, was shocked. But I hope you find a small amount of comfort knowing that God called Tim to be with Him while he was doing something that he truly loved doing--fishing.
God bless all of you!

We are all so heartbroken to learn of the tragic passing of Tim. It was such a shock to us all. Tim was such a good man and father....My Mom and Dad smile to think of the fun that was shared with you all at Scott's reception, those memories will always be with them. My memories of Tim as we "grew up" together was "what a stinker" he was.....I am glad to know that my impressions of him early in our years changed....He was such a happy go lucky guy that LOVED his family....so much life....He is now with The Lord and Tim will look down and care for you from above, by the memories he has left with all of you, in your hearts. Our prayers and love are with you all......

Love, The Shores

I can only agree with what has been said here, thaqt Tim was a special man. Had anyone said different, I'm sure that we all would have come to his defense. I loved him dearly, even though I seldom saw him, and will never forget his love for his wife and girls, and his dad and mom. Tim had such a wonderful peace inside of him that it showed on the outside too. Words cannot express the sorrow and pain that I feel for all of you and I pray that Jesus' love will hold you up now and forever. Love you, Aunt Sara.
