Tim had a great smile, laugh and was well liked by everyone we associated with at Simplifi. He often beamed about his family and was truly a unifier of people and minds. We will miss him and are deeply sorry for your loss.

JERI, So sorry to hear of Tim’s passing. May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together comfort you and your family thru these difficult days.

Words cannot express how I feel right now. Tim was an important part of my HR career. The advice and the knowledge cannot be replaced. My condolences to his family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

The impact of a great man can not be measured by money or status. A great man brings good people together and impacts lives in ways that can’t be measured. Tim Reed was that kind of a great man. He will be missed for the warmth, candor and humor that touched us all. Rest in peace, dear friend. My sincere sympathies to all of those who loved him dearly. Jeri and family, my prayers for comfort are with you.

David & Lee Payne - Oct 28, 2016

May God bless you in this time of sorrow. We have many fond memories of Tim in Chillicothe OH, where we grew up.

Richard J. Pruitt - Oct 28, 2016

Tim was a great friend when we were in high school together. We were also neighbors in Pleasant Valley and often played “friendly” football games in his backyard. I was very pleased to see him at our last class reunion. He grew up to become a man of great integrity and will be sorely missed. Please accept the condolences of my entire family for your loss. May GOD provide comfort and blessings upon your family.

God Bless to Jeri, Amy, Scott, Sutton, Finn, Jeanne, Patty, and the rest of the family during this difficult time.

I am very sorry to hear about this. While I wasn’t employed at Simplifi long and we may have had some differences of business opinions….I very much enjoyed Tim and his personality. He had a giant ornery smile and a great personality. Anyone that met him, liked him immediately. I am very sorry for the family’s loss.
