Timmy had an infectious smile and attitude about everything in life. He loved participating in the Special Olympics program where he was a member of the Indianapolis Westside teams. He accumulated many medals of which you could usually see him wearing around his neck at any time.
He enjoyed spending time at Outside the Box where he attended interactive programs several times a week. He especially enjoyed the music therapy sessions where he wrote his own song ”Oh Baby, Baby” which race fans could hear Tim playing on his guitar and singing loudly every race day!
