  5. I met Tim in the early ’90’s when raising burley tobacco was a big part of what he, and many others, did for a living in this area. Tim remained a friend through the years of the decline of the tobacco and after tobacco production was no longer a part of our lives.

    Tim’s positive and easy way will be remembered by many for a long time. I will always remember Tim’s help during the years that we participated in the Greeneville Christmas Parade. Many times life is short. I am so glad that Tim’s short life crossed my path.
