  1. Karen and family. What a shock to all of us. Tim, Andy and my sons remained friends throughout the years. They all went on vacations together and the stories that they came back telling were hilarious to say the least. Tim was a good businessman and an extremely proud father. He will be missed by so many. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “Death ends a life; Not a relationship.” RIP Tim

    Hugs and prayers,

  2. Hi Tim, You were very special to us, like all of our nieces and nephews, anyway remember the ride you gave me in your new corvette??? I will never forget it, and I also remember the time you brought the cigar boat out to Pleasant Lake you couldn’t even get it wound up and we were at the other end of the lake, I remember you saying “I need to get it off the lake before the police come” it was a little bit too big for the lake. You will be greatly missed. Aunt Sue and Uncle Dan.

  3. Sorry to hear of Tim’s passing, he was the kinda guy that wanted everyone one to have as much enjoyment out of life as he did. Hard working with the motto “drive it like you stole it” Good times, Great memories!

  4. Very sad about this. Such a good guy. Very laid back to talk to but he loved things that were fast and powerful! I always enjoyed talking to him. We had boats and snowmobiles in common. You will be missed my friend. Rest in peace. My condolences to the family I know this is a hard time.

  5. Our deepest sympathy to Kelly and the children. Their loss will be deeply felt forever but as a family they will give each other love and support. Tim had a strength that guided his children and will continue even with his loss. Our prayers are with you

    The Wangler family. Bill, Mary, Laurel and Lindsey

  6. So sad to hear of Tim’s passing. My brother Doug Ruggles and Tim had gone to school together, so he had become a long time family friend. Always enjoyed talking with Tim. He’ll be deeply missed. Prayers to the family

  7. I met Tim when we started out at LakeSection school together,
    I would run into him from time to time as life went on,and always enjoyed seeing him.I would see his Dad more then Tim.
    He never changed from the day I met him on that first day at school!
    Definitely a loss to one of the good ole boys.
    You will be missed by many of us!
    May your family find peace and rest during this difficult time!

  8. I drove truck for Tim Jones in the early 90s, which is how we came to be friends. I remember calling him about the job; I told him who I was and, having worked with my brother over the years, Tim replied, “You’re Randy Norton’s brother, that’s good enough for me. Can you start Monday?”

    Tim was one of the good guys, kindhearted and easygoing, a good friend and a great dad. Hard working and hard playing, he knew how to enjoy life. I learned a lot about how to be a good employee (and a good employer) from him, probably because I screwed off so much and gave him a lot of opportunities to demonstrate how patient he was and what it meant to be a decent guy with integrity and a gentle temperament.

    It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that you’re gone, Tim. You’ll be missed by so many. Rest easy, friend.
