  • Aww, Timmy, what a sad and unexpected loss. Ever since I was fortunate enough to find our neighbor, your mom to be my babysitter for Krista when she was 5 weeks old, Aunt Annie, Uncle Tommy and the Fuhr kids just included us in your family. When sadly, Your Dad and Mom passed, you stepped in, like a good friend and the brother or sibling I never had…. Krista is 49 and you stuck with us, and I treasure you for all the rides and errands, our conversations, the yard work, house “fixings”, you gathered Patty and brothers in too the pies, breads, and especially the oatmeal raisin cookies that I wasn’t supposed to tell Krista about. And, who’s gonna call me to tell me “American Pickers” are on History Channel? I feel such a loss, my beloved friend and “brother” I have a multitude of memories which I will treasure, and I hope we can share them in heaven.

  • Dear Mike, Steph, Michael, Ashley, Sean, Sarah, and extended Fuhr Family, your loss has left us deeply saddened. We can’t imagine how difficult things must be for all of you right now. Loving memories of Timmy will definitely help provide comfort for all of us. Timmy may be gone from our sight, but everyone will forever remember his kindness, thoughtfulness, and love of doing for others and sharing with others. He will be missed dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you in this trying time. Sending hugs. Love you, Marc and Terry
