My friend, Walter Timm was so popular-we couldn’t get through a meal without someone coming by to shake his hand! His popularity spoke volumes about his personality! I was lucky enough to call him my friend and will FOREVER miss him and his kindness! 
Rest In Peace my friend!

You can't find a better bunch of guys than David, Walter and their dad. This is such a tragedy for such an amazing family that has given so much to our community in so many ways. They are always awesome in the store but gave and gave to help support fundraising for many organizations.  They are the epitome of what a true gentlemen is. David,  God Bless you and your family!
