    It was my privilege (as plant Weld Engineer) to know and work with Tim during his many years as a skilled weldor for Altec / Chart. He was always positive, took great pride in his work and was respected by all his fellow co-workers. He had a deep love for his family. Tim will truly be missed by all.

  12. Kathy (Caffrey) Noel

    I haven’t seen “Timmy”, as I knew him, in many years. His mother, Mary, was my mom’s best friend. We spent a lot of fun times with Mary, Herb, Timmy, and Lois Ann when I was young. I barely remember the youngest, Pam, I think. My condolences to all of Tim’s family. Sounds like he was as fun and funny as when I knew him.

  13. Dale BORRESON

    Tim was one of the few people who could make me blush and laugh all at the same time. My condolences to all the family and friends. I have many memories to cherish.

    Tim was a good neighbor to us when we lived in La Crosse.

    Sorry for your loss.
