    Tim played drums with me in several bands. He was a great guy and a good friend. When my wife died in 1993 he came over to spend time with me. I will miss him.

    I thank God for being able to call Tim a friend, and co-worker in the ministry of music. Tim's love for both His music and the people He played to, always showed His love of a great and mighty God. Tim always gave His very best. We will miss you greatly, but having the assurance that we will be reunited, one day in heaven to continue playing the best music ever, is VERY exciting.


    Our love and prayers are with the Timberlake family during this time of their lost of a great christian man.
