Affectionately called “G-Man,” Tim was a very competitive, outspoken and avid sports fan and guru. He had a tremendous memory and could rattle off sports history. Tim played and coached men’s league softball. An avid golfer, Tim enjoyed playing at Hawk Valley, Fox Chase, and in South Carolina. Born on his father’s birthday, they enjoyed celebrating their birthdays by playing a round of golf together.
