Timothy was nicknamed "Gentle Giant" due to his unusual height of 6'7" and even bigger heart. First a US Marine, then a Special Forces 18 Bravo, Timothy also volunteered as a firefighter in his hometown when on leave home from the military. RT Foundation's motto is a quote straight from Timothy's mouth: "I Don't Plan on Running." This came from his days training DEA agents and his optimism and courage that he would never run away from the enemy.
