    Tim was a wonderful man, he worked with my brother the love of my life at broome development center, his kindness helped my mom and I thru a very tramatic time, since we were very distrustting of the staff because my brother was a transfer from Rome Developmental where he had been severely abused, several times he went above and beyond his duties to make sure we knew Danny was safe and loved, , when my mom was dying of Lung Cancer he organised a van to bring Danny home to be with my mom in her last days, God has you Tim in his arms now you are at peace, and pain free, When you see my brother and mom in heaven give them a big hug for me.

    I worked with Tim for many years at Dutch Valley. He was the type of person who had a well thought out position on almost everything. I cannot tell you how many times we disagreed but it was not personal. I learned a lot from him. May God grant him peace in his final rest. My condolences to his family.
