Timothy was a kind-hearted soul with a love of the outdoors. He enjoyed taking long hikes in the woods and although he was the youngest, would often outlast his older brothers on the trails when they were kids. He was an avid hockey fan, and enjoyed following his favorite team – the Boston Bruins. He loved to fish, especially during family trips to Rhode Island. Much to the delight of his nephews and niece, he also enjoyed playing video games. He was thoughtful and generous and will be dearly missed.
