    You will be missed. I remember all the summers you came to Northern Michigan to visit family. You guys would stop at Mom and Dad’s farm, we always had good laughs. We had picnics on Lake Huron or at Grandma and Grandpa Chrzan’s. Our family time was always loud and joyous. God’s Love, Ken and Nanc

    Timothy was such a wonderful person; it was a blessing to have known him and have him as my brother in law. I will cherish and remember him fondly for his kindness, his generosity and his sense of humor. I will miss his extraordinary spirit.
    Timothy was so loved by us all. His legacy will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew him. May his soul rest in peace and rise in glory.
    With love and precious memories always,
