Tim was a true gentle man. Tim was beyond selfless as shown through his actions and his words as he wanted what was best for anyone he encountered. Whether a child at a school sporting event, a co-worker in the office, a colleague in a business meeting, or a stranger on the street, all were treated with respect and the utmost kindness and all felt truly valued and appreciated. Faith played a large role in Tim’s life. Tim was a member of St. Martin De Porres Parish St. Columba Church and a 4th degree member of the Knights of Columbus. Tim was a Commercial Insurance Producer at Walsh Duffield Companies, Inc. Outside of work Tim had numerous titles, roles, and positions. Tim deeply cared about the Caledonia-Mumford community. Tim was a member of the Caledonia-Mumford Central School Board, the Caledonia Town Board, and the Caledonia Recreation Committee and was a statistician for both CMBB Football and CMCS Basketball. Tim was an umpire for many years for the Genesee Valley Umpires Association where he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2020.
No matter the situation or environment, Tim always had a funny story or a joke to tell. Tim lived his life to the fullest each and every day always putting a smile on everyone’s face he encountered. Tim will be truly missed but never forgotten; he will always be in our hearts and minds.
