Tim was a wonderful friend and he will be missed greatly. I enjoyed playing golf with him and having a casual visit at an area watering hole. My wife Ginger and I are and will continue to be in prayer for Stacy and the entire Cook family.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Tim's passing. Tim was smart, charismatic and had a great sense of humor. Tim had an outward mindset and always saw each of us as a person with hopes, dreams and potential. Tim was larger than life; he never entered a room quietly! I will miss Tim greatly.

Hi Tim,
I am truly sorry for your loss. In fact, I could digest what I heard about you as we were together until the last day of your stay in Tokyo. I can't still...
I always feel comfortable whenever we communicate each other. I could learn many things from you.
We will inherit a spirit of yours.
My most sincere condolences to you and your family.

I have known Tim since he joined Olde Sycamore. He was a great golfer and competitor but was always there to help my game when I struggled. He is a friend I will miss. I will keep Tim and his family in my prayers.

I was a friend of Tim's at Olde Sycamore Golf Course. He and I played together on occasion, and I always enjoyed his company. Tim would regular beat me my 25 strokes (if I played well), but we never played a round where I couldn't get him to laugh and smile. I will sorely miss Tim, but I am grateful for the time we got to spend together laughing and relaxing on the golf course. Rest in peace, my friend.

I'll remember Tim as a great competitor on the golf course. You could always rely on him to join you for a quick round and keep grinding to find a win. We'll miss him at every event and every weekend morning.

I was shocked and saddened when I read about Tim's passing. We were in elementary school together and graduated from CHA together. I remember his smile, kindness, and quiet nature. RIP classmate.
