He was an honorary member of the Atlantic Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company, where he was past assistant chief and secretary.

He was a member of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Anglers Club. Timmy was known to come to the rescue of many of his farming family and fix anything they needed.

He was an avid fisherman and hunter who loved to take and teach his nephews his passion. He was always there for his nephews and nieces; from building tree houses to fixing cars and go-carts, Uncle Tim was on it.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother-in-law, Alan W. Revell; and in-laws, John Revell and Peggy and Earl Stephens.
