He was a member of the Summerfield Church of Christ and the Noble County Genealogy Society. He served and protected his nation in the US Army in the Vietnam War. Master Sergeant Timothy R.

To say that Tim worked to assist local veterans as well as commemorate their memory would be an understatement. He served as the American Legion Post 415 Adjutant for 27 years and the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 87 Adjutant for 25 years. He served on the Local Color Guard and attended untold numbers of Veterans funerals for decades. He spent unmeasurable hours with his “Library Girls” doing tedious research to catalog articles concerning local veterans from years past.
