  • Austin Pereira says:

    I am shocked and sad to hear Tim’s passing. Tim has helped me for the last 8 years in plumbing. It was always great to work with Tim. Most impressive about Tim was that he was very honest with me. He helped me as much as he can on non plumbing jobs as well and we developed a good friendship. I will really miss Tim’s smile and easy going and happy nature. Rest in Peace Tim.

    My condolences to Tim’s family. Tim has done so many jobs with me including my new house 15 years ago. I always enjoyed Tim when I see him pull up to the jobs with that smile and incredible attitude to life! I just got the news today from other clients who found out as well ! We just wanted to wish him a happy birthday! I’m pretty sure he got a few messages today! I will miss my friend!May God be with Tim and family through this difficult time.
