WE ARE SO SORRY TO HEAR OF TIMS PASSING, OUR PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS GO OUT TO THE FAMILY,MAY HE REST IN PEACE,
-- ED&BETTY MCGINN
Tim was a classmate of mine at Alleman Class of '64. During our last class reunion, he commented in the Memory Book that his fondest memory was "the year we went to state tournament in basketball". He also commented that he "missed all of the great times we had in school; those were special years"......and I might add Tim was one of those "special people during those special years"! He will be missed, but not forgotten by the Class of '64.
I will be out of town and unable to attend visitation and service, so I want to express my condolences to his family at this site. I know the journey you are on during this transition. May you find strength in prayer and in the love from family and friends. God bless!

Tim was a great friend of mine for many years. We go back to the Continental Baking days working in HR/Labor Relations together. I live in Phoenix and was so glad when he moved here. We talked often and saw each other as much as our schedules would allow. Tim was an awesome person with high morals. He loved his Cubs! I'm sorry I can't be in attendance at the funeral but he will be in my thoughts. Judy, Lea Ann and I are praying for you. We'll see you back in Phoenix. Alan and Lea Ann

Judy and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. I worked with Tim in the late 70's when I worked at the Davenport Continental bakery. He was a great mentor and friend and a fun guy to work with. I always enjoyed being with him.
I wish you all peace,

Barb, don't know if you remember two little neighbor girls who lived in Eda Selle's house on 4th Ave in Rock Island. Vicki and Cindy Barb..........we played with all of you as kids and have often thought about the two Brozovich Families that shared the duplex across the alley from us. Many fond memories of all of you kids and your parents. So sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. He was a good kid as I remember him. He taught my little brother, Con how to hit a baseball. Vicki and I are still in Maquoketa and will never forget you and your families. Sympathy and our prayers are with you.
