When you think of Tim, one always sees his smiling grin. That was Tim, a happy sociable guy, and “extrovert from day one” as his father has said. He loved people and people loved him back. You couldn’t help it. His former coach has said, “Tim wore you down with niceness.” It couldn’t have been said better. Tim was always one step ahead in thinking about and helping others, ensuring that everyone he knew and loved had what they needed or liked-from a good bottle of wine to a decorative snowman floral arrangement for a Christmas table; from starting a young nephew’s college fund to beginning a good card game. He even saw when a tired mom needed a “kid break.” Tim was the reason his childhood friends stayed together to this day, their strong link was “Finn,” and without doubt, this link will remain because of him. A true family man, tim enjoyed countless family gatherings, as well as annual family vacations. He mostly cherished the vacations he shared with his wife, “quality time” as they referred to them. Tim was also the family’s barbecue king, being counted on for the juiciest burgers, flavored with his enthusiasm. His ways were all selfless, a devoted husband, constantly concerned about his wife, a son who loved his Dad’s company, reminiscing their fondest memories, a basketball coach for youths for whom he was eager to teach the game, an uncle that was known to become one of the kids and have fun. In fact, Tim really enjoyed a good time. This was clearly evident at many friend and family’s weddings when he took center stage with his crazy dances. Tim was more than thoughtful, he saw and acted upon beyond which was just in front of him. He exuded generosity, and humbleness as well. As wonderful a man as he was, never did he have a “better than you” attitude. Surely his goodness rubbed off on those around him. You couldn’t help but to better yourself in his presence. We know he is smiling and grinning down from heaven and is seeing the wondrous ripple effect of his goodness, only to have been accelerated by his absence. To have known Tim is truly to have known love. We’ll miss him dearly but will never, ever be without him. For Timothy Joseph Finnerty, we will continue to spread the love he shared in order to make this world a better place.
Tim is a great guy. He would always be there for you. He was a sweet guy and he still is. Even though you can’t see him he will always be in your heart. He died because he was good for Earth. We will never forget about you Tim. You’re a great guy. – Written by Tim’s 8 year old nephew Kieran Cassillo.
