Tim was the proud owner of Auto-Thentic Automotive in Wakefield for 45 years and passed on the business to his family upon his retirement but still enjoyed working on sports cars when he could. He loved listening and dancing to Irish music with his friends and family, he took many trips to Ireland to visit his family and looked forward to every minute of those trips. Tim loved to work in his yard and you could find him in the winter months outside splitting wood to make sure his fire kept everyone warm. Above all, Tim loved his family with all his heart and so looked forward to Friday night family dinners at Kitty’s in North Reading.
