On Thursday, June 13, 2013, Tim McCabe went to be with the Lord and his youngest son, Timothy Earl. I have no doubt that the reunion was a joyous one, however, he left behind a family that will be missing him terribly. Tim was an extraordinary family man. He always put his wife and children in top priority and there was no place he'd rather be than surrounded by them.

Loving husband, father and grandfather. I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday and days before that too, I think of you in silence I often speak your name, All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part, God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.
As we go through Life's Journey, you'd be Proud to know your Legacy Lives on Dad. It all began with You and Mom and the Life you shared with each other and your Kids. We might be separated by Distance or the Heart, but I hope that if we've learned anything in life it's that Family is all that matters, so to my Family I say, "Cherish each other, Love each other and Always be there for Each Other."
