So sorry to hear of Tim's passing. It was a pleasure and honor to work with Tim at school. He was always a supporter of the the physical education program and athletic department. His love for children and making sure they were involved in school never went unnoticed. He was a champion to those less fortunate and was always there with a smile on his face. RIP Tim. You were a great friend!

I can still hear him telling me..'Tara uncurl that finger before you break it!' and I would just giggle cause I couldn't break that habit! He was such a kind and genuine man, he will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with Tim's family at this most difficult time. I knew Tim from high school. He reached out to me to encourage me along with other Ballston Spa classmates, as I went through cancer treatments and other health issues. He was very positive I am so very sorry for your loss. God Bless you and your family.

Big part of my childhood. Spent a lot of time as a kid with the DuBois family. He lived one incredible life and will be missed.

Knowing Mr. Tim was one of the greatest pleasures that I have experienced as a teacher at WHES. I was so young when I was hired and Mr. Tim was always so incredibly kindhearted and helpful to me. His thoughtful nature and sweet disposition made my days as a new teacher so much easier. He was like everyone's favorite grandfather here at school and his presence was truly missed when he left. Although I've never had the pleasure of meeting his family I can only imagine how wonderful they are having been raised by such a special man. God must've needed someone pretty spectacular up in Heaven to have taken Mr. Tim; it's nice to know that he will be watching over us all just like he did here on Earth.

Sometimes it's tough to say one word can describe a person in MR DUBOIS I always found it easy CLASSY, no matter your background or issues you were going through, always had the utmost respect for you, and that always made you feel great, because man was special and you knew the first couple of moments talking to him. I feel so lucky to had the time I did with him!!!!

Rest in peace, "Screaming Eagles" lost a good man. I never met him, it would have been an honor and a pleasure to swap stories. When you lose a man who served, you lose a brother who passed the torch to another soldier who carries that same flame, never to burn out.

Jim and Donna Robitaille

Never met such a kind-hearted man. He was always there to add a smile to my face!! Enjoyed many conversations with him over the years that we were both at Waterford-Halfmoon School!! He sure was a family man and shared many stories and would beam with pride when speaking of them!! Our sincere sympathy to Mary and all his family.

Dan Wells and family

May you rest with the Lord. You will be forever missed.

The Monahan Family

Lisa and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this heartbreaking time. Most of the time we spent around your dad was at Little League and CYO basketball games and during that time, we learned your dad was a funny, outspoken, proud man who adored his Grandchildren! Many thanks for his service to our Country! May he rest in peace.

It is with great sadness that I write this for a man who touched the hearts of so many with his kindness and generosity. I want you to know how very much he meant to everyone at Waterford Halfmoon. I will remember his smile and his laughter for ever! He never forgot to leave a peach on my desk for my birthday because peaches are my favorite..... If he found a treasure for me .....a roll of paper, a piece of equipment he thought I might use it made its way to my classroom door. He was so very proud of his children and grandchildren and he loved his Mary dearly; he would share photos of you. I know that you felt his love. I know his health was not good and I only hope he went peacefully with the grace of God. God Bless all of you in this time of grieving. We were all so very lucky to have known him

Tim and I spent class time together in youth. He was kind and serving then and his family can be so proud of his love for others and his integrity. He served our country well. May God bring swift comfort to his wife Mary and his loving children.

Tim was such a nice man and wonderful husband, father and grampa to our Chayton, Kyler and Emma who couldn't have loved him more. He was so good to our son Todd who loved him so very much. He will be missed at all of the baseball and basketball games by all of us but especially his grandchildren. It was wonderful to know him and it is a gift to know his daughter Lisa as our daughter. God bless his family.

Mr. Tim was the kindest, most helpful person at Waterford-Halfmoon. When I started working there, he was such a great resource. He built bookcases and all kinds of things for the teachers here. What an angel. He will be missed but his spirit will always be with us.

Pam Bailey

Tim will be greatly missed. He was such a kind-hearted man and would, as our handyman, willingly help out whenever anyone needed something done at school. We had conversations about his family and he helped me solve some gardening issues. It was such a joy to see him again when he would occasionally visit after his retirement. Tim was the type of person I feel blessed to have known. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

Carrie Cunningham

So very sad about the passing of Tim. He was a great, funny, loving person. Nothing is ever fair. Remember he is still with you. Try to remember the fun times you had with him. He will always be in everyone's hearts. God bless and love to all of you.
