    Holthaus Family; I have fond memories of Tim and I want to pass along my deepest condolences. He always made me smile and his demeanor made me enjoy the little things in life. My latest memories of Tim include him with his money bucket to help his sister during the Bowlathons. He will be missed by all.

    I was in high school with Tom (Tex) — we hung out in the same gang. I always remember Tom as having a kind heart, ready and sincere smile with a robust laugh. During the course of our time in high school, I was privileged to meet his younger brother Timmy. I was impressed that Tom was so gentle and patient with Timmy and really heard what he had to say. Even though much of what Timmy said at that time was “Who your ma?” “You know me?” and such. ha ha ha – He was fun! I loved Timmy for his pure soul. It was refreshing to be in his presence. Although I moved to Phoenix way back in 1983, I felt lucky to catch Timmy and/or Tom, a few times at my dad’s bar (Ditto’s) on my visits back home. I am glad to have known Timmy. His presence made me a better person. His presence opened my heart like no one else ever has. For that, I am grateful.

    I am sorry Timmy no longer walks the earth with us. I am sorry for your family’s loss. You are all loved… be well.
