A Background Rooted Deeply in Northwest Florida
Tim was born in Georgia. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Vernon, Florida, just thirty miles north of Panama City. After graduation from Vernon High, he and his wife moved to Panama City and Tim began working full time at Creative Printing. At that time, Timothy also began attending Gulf Coast State College, where he focused on electronics and robotics development. Tim graduated with two degrees: an Associate of Applied Science in Electronics Engineering and an Associate of Science in Computer Integrated Manufacturing.
In April, 2011, he came on board as an automation and development specialist with Garner IT Consulting. With Tim’s help, Garner IT has grown ever since.
A Family Man
Tim and his wife, Kristin, have known each other since second grade. They began dating during their senior year in high school. They married in 2008 and presently have two boys.
The most influential person in Tim’s life is his wife, Kristin. “She is my rock and my foundation. Without her I am nothing,” Tim reflects. That’s an observation eventually made by every devoted husband.
One of the most influential lessons he’s learned came from his mother. “She influenced me to achieve in school at an early age. Her message was that by doing so life would be much easier later. She was so right.”
When asked what his happiest memories are, Timothy smiles and says: “The day I married my best friend and the birth of my boys.” In his leisure time, his first priority and pleasure is spending time with his family.
“What’s important,” Tim says, “is spending time together and doing whatever I can to help. I want to be there for my family when I’m needed. I love watching my sons as they understand and learn things right in front of me. It’s the greatest feeling in the world.”
The Great Outdoors in Florida
Wanting to see their kids grow up in the same small town they grew up to love, in 2015 Tim and his family moved back to his and his wife’s home town of Vernon. “We always knew we would end up back there. We just did not know when”, said Tim.
Living in Washington County, Florida allows Tim the luxury of spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, canoeing and camping. Tim remembers many pleasant early mornings or early evenings in the forest enjoying that quiet environment.
Tim also loves playing sports. He is currently on the Rec Board for Vernon and helping coach the baseball and football teams that his eldest son plays on while their youngest watches from the sidelines eager to get out there himself.
