    I first met Neil at Trinity Lutheran Hospital Laboratory. I had just moved to Kansas City and he trained and oriented me to the new environment. We became friends almost immediately. Over the years we spent a lot of time fishing and riding our bikes together. Very sad to hear of his passing but the memories will last…

    Dear Janet and Bruce

    I was so sorry to hear of Neil’s passing. Please send my condolences to your families for me. I know he will be deeply missed. He talked to Sturg some time ago and he indicated that he had some health issues. We had no idea how serious it was. You are in my thoughts and prayers

    I met Neil, what seems like a 1000 centuries ago, through a mutual friend in 1973. We were both going to the UW and had to be in Madison that summer. Before really knowing each other we and a couple of other guys rented a house for the summer. We both had full schedules and didn’t become friends till the end of that summer. We had many adventures during and after we graduated the UW. We stayed in touch all these years. I will miss him and can hardly believe he is gone. I can still hear his laugh and the voices he used telling stories and jokes. Goodbye old friend, and wherever you are, I wager your acquaintances are having a better time than before you got there.

    Neil was sunshine to my day! I enjoyed getting to know him and he always made me smile. He was thoughtful, caring and truly a wonderful man. I know his spirit lives on. He will be greatly missed.

    I had the pleasure of taking care of Neil for a few of his stays at the KU Hospital. He was always a super nice guy and fun to joke around with. I am sorry to hear of his passing and I know he will be missed. My deepest condolences go out to his family.

    I met Neil in 1977 when I was a Med Tech student at Trinity Lutheran Hospital. We have been close friends ever since. I will never forget the parties that he had at his house, or the many opening day Royal’s games we attended. I was as frugal as he; we would try to see who could hold out the longest on turning on the heat in the winter! So many memories bringing tears to my eyes–I will miss you, Neil.

    I first met Neil at Trinity Lutheran in 1978. We have kept in touch all these years by phone, going out for drinks and dinner, dancing and going to see movies. I think the first movie we saw together was Risky Business in 1983. He would take my friend Carol and I out for our birthdays every November. We always had a good time. Neil was one of the funniest and most energetic people I have ever known. We teased him often about being cheap, but when it came to his friends, he was always very generous. I will miss my friend.

    To Neil Timmecke’s family,
    I worked with Neil for several years at Centerpoint and always enjoyed working with him especially on weekends wnen we weren’t too busy. He always had some crazy joke or pun to tell us. He was a good listener, too. We would always compare notes when we had traveled somewhere.
    I’m so sorry that his illness was untreatable– it just didn’t seem fair. He will be greatly missed.
