  • Gaston family. Having known and coached a number of the boys at East Valley over the years,the passing of Tim and the news of Randy has left me saddened. Tim was probably the best overall athlete I ever coached. Condolences to Dorothy and the family.

  • Gaston family: I was fortunate to coach Tim in summer baseball for several years. He was one of my favorite players of all time, that includes more than 20 years of coaching boys and girls youth sports. He may have been the best all-around athlete I ever coached and he had a winning personality to match. He was the nicest, most considerate boy and I’ll never forget the special twinkle in his eyes. Thinking about that twinkle and his constant smile gives me joy today. I’m sorry for you loss.

    Warmest regards,

  • Tim’s passing is a terrible loss. I knew Tim when he attended Trentwood Elementary School and East Valley Jr. Hi. Even though I had not seen him in many years, I often thought of him and hoped that he was doing well after his injury. I am deeply saddened by his passing. My heart felt condolences go out to his family and friends.

  • The last call to Tims location in Cal. informed me Tami Hoadleyhe was no longer there and gave no forward locations.As I now find Richland as in the barial info. Has caused me again to think of how much I missed of him. And that we could have enjoyed some time in the land he was possibly living.I was also checking to know if barial arrangements were there already. It appears they are. I have been informed that In the purchases I have made for barial that more than one can be baried if cremation is chosen. And that I would be honored to allow his barial. Gallent white Horses in Feathery Flight, Fleet footed dancers our steeds of the night. Step along pathways to us yet unknown, kings in their wisdom, clouds as their throwns. Sleek coats of satin nostrils red rose, eyes of black velvet so solome so cold.With a freedom so wild it can chill to the bone, a freedom that no human hand can hold.Yet if you should clasp their mystical pride they will vanish in air not a trace left behind. I wrote in the Eastvalley High school on a bench in front of the office. I often think of it as the spirit that abides.

    And Am thankful for the memeries I do keep. May all things work together for our good.I’d like to be there for the barial. I just discovered through a phone call from Linda Perry

    that she found the notice in the paper.Also informing me of East Valleys reunion. I had an address on Dani Lindell

    yet not a phone number so I have wrote her in case she had not heard. To allow the Lindells to know of our loss.

    Keeping in Touch.

    Loved Tim much!

    Tami

    Tami

    May God rest his soul and comfort ours forever and ever Amen.

    This ability on a computer is a new discovery for me!
