Tim was born in Riverside, CA on September 24, 1952 and moved to Massena with his family in 1954. He received degrees from Cranwell Preparatory School in Lenox, MA, Syracuse University and Clarkson College. Tim worked for IBM for many years.
Tim had a great sense of humor, and was always ready with a joke, or more likely a bad pun. He loved to travel and especially enjoyed learning about Italian cuisine and wine. He appreciated a wide variety of music. He was a zealous Syracuse Orange fan.
He spent countless hours with his nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews, whom he loved and who loved him in return. His family and his many friends will miss him greatly.
