Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I do not want to believe this. I worked with Timmy at Jersey City Fire Dispatch for many years. But, Timmy was not just a boss to me. He was someone who always looked out for me, through everything. He made me laugh, harder than I probably ever have, on so many occasions. His random phone calls to talk about "what's new kid?, Are you still getting your overtime?" He always wanted to know how "his Matthew" was doing. This man taught me so much in the years that I worked with him, but also in the years after I moved on to become a police officer. He would always keep in touch, I would love to stop by at dispatch and reminisce about the old times, he would tell stories that just came to life as he told them. We'd brew a pot of coffee and talk for hours. He would tell me how much he misses me working with him and making him laugh. He loved me so much, after he got a new crew assigned to him he began to tell them stories of OPIE (my nickname there). Until one night I was called at home and he told me I have to come in so that his new crew could meet me and know the guy that he never stopped telling stories of. This is a significant loss in my life, because when times were terrible and luck was down, Timmy made me laugh, he gave me direction, he gave me hope. Last week we spoke on the phone and as always he asked how I was? What's new kid? And if I was still getting my overtime? We chatted for some time, but then the conversation came to an end. As always he told me "shoot straight" right before he hung up. I could tell stories for days about him and undoubtably will for the rest of my life. One day my kids will hear about him because that is what kind of guy he was. I miss him so dearly and most certainly never forget him.
