Born August 23, 1957. Passed into the Hands of Our Lord, May 29, 2007. The love of my life has passed away. Tim, you embodied Love, Life, and Laughter. A true friend to all around. We struggle to say goodbye to you knowing that our time with you could never be long enough. We know that your spirit will be among us as we come together to celebrate your life. Until we see you again, you will be missed by your wife, lover, friend - - your soul mate, Chelle. Your loving children Robert, Lora, Tina and Brandon. Your adoring Mother and Father-In-Law, Nealie and Richard and Your Father Bob and Mother Harriet. Your treasured sisters and brothers-in-laws, cherished nieces, nephews, cousins, Aunts and Uncles and all of your numerous friends. So, until we meet again... "I love you, Honey. I'll see you tomorrow." - Michelle Barney

The Following was written by fellow coworker, Phil Tornquist~
I HAVE KNOWN TIM SINCE 1991 WHEN I FIRST WORKED FOR THE COMPANY, AND HE WAS THE SAME TIM BACK THEN AS HE WAS NOW. TIM WAS THE KINDA GUY WHO WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR YOU OR GIVE YOU THE SHIRT OFF OF HIS BACK. IF HE SAW YOU STRUGGLING ACROSS THE ROOM OR PLANT WITH SOMETHING, HE WAS JOHNNY ON THE SPOT TO GIVE YOU A HAND.
NOT ONLY WAS HE A GREAT GUY, HE WAS A GREAT BIG GUY; BOTH IN SIZE AND HEART. I CANNOT RECALL HOW MANY TIMES TIM WAS THE EXTRA MUSCLE I NEEDED ON JOBS OR THE INSPIRATION TO KEEP GOING AND JUST "GET IT DONE".
TIM WAS AN ANCHOR TO ALOT OF US AT JENSON MECHANICAL, HE WAS LIKE A BROTHER, NOT JUST A CO WORKER OR CASUAL AQUAINTANCE. HE WAS THE COMIC RELIEF THAT WE ALL NEEDED ON THE JOB OCCASIONALLY, AND NEVER TOOK HIMSELF SO SERIOUSLY THAT HE COULDN'T LAUGH AT HIMSELF AT TIMES.
PLEASE PRAY FOR TIM, HIS FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CO WORKERS AT JENSON MECHANICAL; AND USE THIS SITE IN REMEMBERANCE OF HIM.
He is Gone
You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.
