Tim also was involved in many community activities, including the chambers of commerce of Plainview and Norfolk, PAC of Plainview and Community Theatre. Tim was always Ranae’s biggest supporter of everything she was involved in as well.

Tim enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his daily conversations with his mother. The light of his life was his spouse, Ranae, and his many nieces and nephews. He loved checking for the best deal no matter what it was, a meal out or shopping for anything. He was a great connoisseur of recipes; he loved collecting recipes and cookbooks.

Tim was a phone person to say the least. Not only did he love staying in constant communication with family and friends, but social media was a big part of his life. Having grown up on the farm, Tim never strayed far from his farm roots.

Tim really did love life and affected anyone he came in contact with. If you met him as a stranger, you didn’t leave as one.
