BYRNE, Tim Tim Byrne recently passed away at the age of 55.

Tim was born January 31st, 1959 in Spokane, Washington to Charleen and Robert Byrne.

Tim loved all sports especially football, baseball, snow and water skiing.

There weren’t too many people Tim did not get along with; he was a friend to all.

Tim’s famous anthem, “I’m on Fire” always indicated to us he was having a good day.

The Byrne family would especially like to thank Betsy and the very dedicated staff of Moore’s boarding home for the many years of service and care provided to Tim.

Tim was supported by a community of professionals, caregivers and friends who provided companionship, compassion and friendship.

Tim received support from Frontier Behavioral Health and other social agencies.

Our family always appreciated the many people who have helped Tim throughout his life.
