  6. Mike Sauvageau says:

    It was always a pleasure working with Tim. He was an all-around good person.

  7. Clint Lowe says:

    When I remember Tim, I recall a fellow who was very pleasant to work with, whether on the flightline or at the Hush House where we spent many hours troubleshooting issues with his assigned aircraft. He had a genuine concern for his plane, co-workers and the pilots who counted on that aircraft to perform safely. Throughout those experiences he remained a very good person to spend time with, always helpful and friendly.

    After retirement, I’d run into Tim now-and-then and could count on a pleasant few minutes conversation to catch up on the news in his life. The news of his demise was an unfortunate surprise.

    In His infinite wisdom, God sends certain people into your path to add some pleasantness to life…Tim was one of those people. I’m sure Tim is enjoying his reward; condolences to the family.

    I knew Tim as a coworker and as a friend. He was a very conscientious worker. I enjoyed our lunches together at the ‘retirement’ table. I enjoyed the many conversations we had about work, family and faith. There is comfort in the memories but he will be truly missed.

    Tim, my friend and fellow Hooligan you will be missed by the many lives that you touched both at work and outside of work. You were a very caring and thoughtful person. RIP my good friend.

  16. Chris Kolness says:

    Tim trained me in as an aircraft mechanic in the air national guard in the early 90’s. He always took the time to pass down his knowledge and he really cared about everyone around him. Many times you would learn a valuable life lesson after talking with Tim; often realized much later in life. Thanks for taking the time Tim. God bless.

  17. John and Kelley Simonson says:

    Tim played a vital role in the adoption of our youngest of 3 daughters. He helped bestow one of the 3 greatest joys of our lives while helping a child have opportunities that she may otherwise not have. He was a remarkable man. Kind, gentle and sweet.

  18. Lyle Andvik says:

    It was an honor and a joy to have served with Tim. When we stepped out to the jet, we always knew that Tim’s aircraft would be ready. He will be missed.

  19. Timothy John Fox says:

    I spent my early years at the farm in Felton on weekends with my father Patrick Fox, Tim’s oldest brother. Tim was the youngest and spent time with me and my cousins starting up a ball game or on the 4th of July helping us with fireworks and making sure we were careful. My parents parted ways and I never saw Tim till 4 years ago when my father passed. Tim was so helpful and made sure to contact me and help me through that tough time. I am proud to be named after such a great man and hope I can be half the man he was. He has definitely earned his wings.

  20. Nolan Carlson says:

    I had the pleasure of working with Tim at the Guard for many years. He always had a smile and a story to share. He was a very caring man who touched the lives of so many coworkers and friends. Heaven gained a great Hooligan!
    My deepest sympathies and condolences to his family.
    God Bless.

    Tim was one of those “all around really nice guys.”……Never phony….a good friend. Joe Moore

  22. Ray Otto, Col, USAFR says:

    “Sargent Fox” always had my respect, willing to lend a hand and get the mission done (period). I transferred from Georgia Air Guard and F-15s. He kidded me about twin tail and engine fighterss as I learned the Falcons and we rebuilt our newly arriving F-16s. I recall working his jet in the dock. I worked the Accessory Gear Drive. He worked on his jet, only leaving to help on the line when required. His jet was best jet after just when phase because he gave it his all when it was in. He offered to bring a drink. True blue Hooligan Airmen. He will be missed

  23. LaVane Weight says:

    I was the Training Manager. I guess he must have always kept his training up to date, as I had very little contact with him. I knew him as one of the crew chiefs.
