Tim was happiest when he was working. He worked for Mountain View Lumber, Lane Packing, JA MacDonald, among others but he held Harvest Moon Valley Ranch and his trucking business as one of this greatest accomplishments. Recently, he enjoyed helping “his ladies” at the St. Johnsbury and Lyndonville food shelves where he spent hundreds of hours unloading trucks and doing what was needed to make sure that no one ever went hungry.

Tim’s real love was horses and he never met a horse that he could not ride, all you had to do was ask him! He was a storyteller, loved talking about his rodeo days, shenanigans with all his friends and there were many, hunting and trapping, working his land and was so proud of all he had accomplished on his property.

A celebration of life will be held on Jan. 15, 2022 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the VFW, 156 Hill St., Lyndonville, VT 05851 where all his friends and family are invited to come with all their favorite Tim stories.
