It is with heartfelt sorrow that I pass on our condolences to Tim’s family. I had the privilege of coaching and knowing one of the finest Conneaut high school athletes of all time. Although we have lost touch we will never forget his quiet leadership and thoughtfulness that helped his teammates be champions just like him. We are sorry that he was taken from us so early. He will never be forgotten.

I have spent many years working and laughing with “Bloodman”. He was a good friend and experienced driver. This should not have happened to him. Lots of good memories. The “Bloodman” is gone. Rest In Peace! Sympathies to his family. Gary Herron.
