Tim was born on June 29, 1982, in Bridgeton, NJ. He resided in Vineland for most of his life. Tim attended Vineland High School and played as quarter back on the VHS Football Team. After graduation, he began working at Ehrlichman Pest Control. Tim eventually moved on to be a truck driver, a career he ended up loving, at XPO, formerly known as Conway Freight.
Tim was a devoted son, brother, uncle, husband, and most of all, father. According to his children, he was "the best daddy in the entire world." He was determined to provide for his family and made sure to give them the best life he thought they deserved. Family meant more to Tim than anything in the world. He was an outstanding uncle and loved his nieces and nephews as much as his own children. Tim was a hero to his entire family.
On his off time, Tim loved coaching for Elk Township Little League where his son played baseball. This team was also a huge part of his life.
