Sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of coaching middle school boys' basketball my first two years at Lamar with Tim (2011-2013). I learned a lot from him and continue to use those things 8 years later. Such a great guy. He will be missed.

I will remember Tim’s big smile—especially in his cowboy hat for our senior trip to Dallas. Our kindergarten year brings back a memory of him sitting behind me pulling on my hair. I definitely remember the smiles he will always give me and continue to give me. RIP, classmate and friend.
