I used to see Tim when I would walk my dog. He was very kind and always chatted with me. May Tim rest in peace. - Dottie Fulginiti

Each and everyday I would watch as Tim started his day out with a walk. I would soon find out he had a purpose on those walks, to spread his smile and offer his friendship along the way. I truly was in awe of his ability to maintain this schedule everyday...the weather was never a reason not to go, he knew the town was waiting for him to walk by give a wave, cars beeped everyone knew Tim, and I am blessed that I was one of the countless people in town he cheered up just because he could. My sympathies to you all.

To Tim's family,
During my daily activities on the town's police force, I would always see Tim walking thru the town's center. After a while, we got to know each other and I would treat him to a drink or something at the Dunkin Donuts in the Village shops and have short conversations. I was saddened to see that he has passed. His smile and wave to the cruiser will be missed. RIP Sir. Godspeed.

Cousin Shaun, on behalf of the entire Fitzgerald/Bonfiglioli family, and my service dog Goliath, we wish to express our deepest condolences at the passing of Tim. I remember our family always dressing in our Sunday best to come visit y'all, and having to remain so prim and proper, while you folks had so much fun stuff to play with, and me, just itching to pull the tie off and run buck wild! Great family times we had and will have! Again Shaun, our sincere condolences to you and the family.

Tim was an important member of the Oliver Ames Class of 1962.
We all loved him for his sweet demeanor.
He attended every class reunion that he could with the aid of his brother Shaun.
It was always wonderful to see Tim and we always shared at least one slow dance together.
Sending my deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
He will be missed.

Tim was a charming man. I knew him when I was a young and was so happy to share in his later life during our friendship with Shaun. My husband & I always looked for him when we visited famiily in Easton. He was quite a character!
