To the Trial family, I am so sorry for the loss of Tim.  I had the pleasure of meeting Tim when he was working for Carlisle and continued to work with him throughout his career.  He was a great man, and I always enjoyed our conversations and the occasional pint or two we would enjoy together at the Rubber Shows.  He will be missed!

Mixed Foliage Basket with Daisies was sent by Olga.Sherry and kids, your husband and father was a dear friend of mine and Godfather to my daughter. He will be missed. God bless you all during this difficult time and may Tim rest in peace. Love to you all from Olga (Briones) Wilson, and my kids, Robby, Stephanie & Kori Houston; and my siblings (the Briones').

Dear Sherri Our sincerest heart-felt condolences to you and the children.  Tim was a business associate of mine for many years and became a dear respected friend. I remember our dinners (the 4 of us) and the good times....  I remember taking my daughter, Tim and Emily to see a Tom Petty concert some years back and will always appreciate the fond memory of that evening; two dads and two daughters....  Ironically both girls attended PS University and had the same majors... My former colleagues in Dow (retired) will always remember Tim as a great guy and the best technical expert for sure!!! Bless you and the children! I'll never forget Tim!!!

My deepest sympathy goes out to Tim's family. He was a good friend to me as well as to many of our classmates at Somerset. Even though I hadn't seen him since the early 80's, I know the love for family and friends never changed. My prayers go out to you at this most difficult time. God Bless.

I am deeply sadden by the news of Tim's passing. He was a classmate of mine, with such a happy demeanor.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

We are both very saddened by the news of Tim passing on. He was a very special friend for many years in San Antonio. We will post and write more later. Cheryl, unfortunately cannot physically travel to attend the services this weekend. Hopefully at some point in the future we can have a memorial service for his San Antonio buds. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the entire Trial family. Peace and every good.
