    My brother, it has been several months since you left us to be with the Lord. My heart still aches, missing you. We were so close, I couldn't ask for a better brother. I miss you so, so much. A piece of my heart left with you. Rest in peace knowing that your family is our family. Ira and Anton will always be loved and taken care of. As we always told each other while we were breathing earth's air....I Love You and miss you dearly. Until we met again my brother.... Dave

    To Tim's family, I'm sorry to hear of Tim's passing , Tim came into work at Bridesburg foundry to help us with our production problems. We became good friends and found out we both loved to play guitar. He would bring his guitar when visiting and instead of eating lunch we would play guitar. He was really good I enjoyed his company and talent. May our good Lord watch him and his family. Tom Druckenmiller

    I am so saddened to hear of Tim's passing however know that he is at peace now. He was wonderful to work with - always wanted to do the best for our customers and our company. He was a great mentor to me to understand perspectives from the sales side of how we conduct business. We had some great talks about humanness and taking care of each other. My sympathies to all who walked with and beside Tim in his life journey. Nancy Rank ASK Chemicals Customer Service

    How lucky we all are to have known this man. He was a kind, generous, loving man. I will cherish all the memories we made, the river house, Penguins and Steelers games, Texas visits, and so much more. I will for sure miss those phone calls "Kimmy it's Timmy". One last time. Love you Timmy! Kimmy

    I have been fortunate in my life to occasionally meet some truly good people. Tim and Ira are such people. I have never met anyone more genuine, caring, and enjoyable to be with. Tim was such a good friend and truly inspirational. He was a kind man, dedicated to his family and friends. He was a man of integrity and principal and always willing to go the extra mile which I deeply admired. I was fortunate enough to have been a part of his life both professionally and personally, witness his relationship with Ira and her family, spend time with them on many occasions and events and to call him my friend. I will always remember the celebrations and parties, time at the Dacha, events, fishing and just relaxing listening to him play guitar...what a talent. Kim and I are so grateful to have known Tim and Ira and the world is a lesser place with him gone from it. We will miss you Timmy. Uno mas my friend! Randy

    Timmy was one of the kindest people I ever had the pleasure of meeting. So many great memories shared between our family and his. From the river house, to Saint Paddy's day, to Steelers games; he always brought so much joy and laughter to any space he was in. He will be truly missed by many. My deepest condolences to the Matthews. ❤️

    I am heart-broken, dear cousin. There are no words to express the sorrow I feel for Ira, Anton, Aunt Dorothy, Uncle Ed and all of my PA cousins. I cherish the memory of visiting your river house, listening to you play the guitar, fishing, kayaking, and walking that spooky trail with you and Bob. I just wish we could have had more memories. I will truly miss you Tim and to all of my PA family, I am keeping everyone in my heart and prayers. With deep love and sympathy, Christina Tulisiak Ordonia and Daniel Ordonia
