  • Mike & Patti Pritchard We are saddened to hear about Tim's passing. So many memories have come to mind while talking about Tim! I, Mike, have been neighborhood friends with Tim since we were 4-5 years old. Along with myself, Mark Stolp, Loren Flaten, Jeff Larsen and Tim, we got into a lot of situations. So great to grow up in the country with Tim as a very close friend, I will truly miss him but never forget all of our memories.
    With warm blessings,
    Mike & Patti
