I knew Tim and Peggy throughout my growing up years at Clague Road UCC. We continued to be friends , having dinner together, going to concerts at St. John Evangelical Church, celebrating the holidays or birthdays with an occasional picnic.
Tim, you will be missed. Rest In Peace

First time I met Tim was on the school bus going home. We were in the 7th. grade and he had a bloody nose, I offered a Kleenex to him. Thru high school seemed like he was always in one of my classes. Tim was always one of the good guys.
Rest In Peace Tim.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Hart family. Although I have never met Mr Hart, I am currently serving alongside Jamie in the Air Force. He has always spoken highly of his father and he and Mrs Peggy Hart have raised an honorable family man. I pray the Lords peace and comfort amongst your family at this time of bereavement.

I graduated with "Timmy" who I knew most of my school years. He was always a happy guy who loved his family, travels, and "debating" via Facebook. It was always a fun time when our class got together for Christmas or reunions and got to catch up. My prayers are with Peggy and his son Jamie.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. What a loss.

I enjoyed Tim very much over the last 25 year. Especially talking (arguing) over whatever the topic was at the time. Tim, so sorry that Traci and I hid the "good wood" making you think that we burnt it. Also, that we changed out all those picture frames at Christmas that one year :).
Many, many great memories!
