Tim loved the outdoors, he mostly enjoyed hunting and fishing at every opportunity possible. He enjoyed making sure every person who visited their home was well fed and loved making his famous gumbo for all to enjoy. Tim was never more happy than being surrounded by friends and family. He loved sharing memorable stories of get togethers and of course his hunting and fishing successes.
