Today we say our final goodbye to our beloved brother Timothy (Tim) James Tiernan who went on to be with his mother; Sarah Judith Tiernan, father; Gerald Joseph Tiernan Sr., brothers; Gerald Joseph Tiernan Jr., and Channing Michael Tiernan, as well as nephew; Patrick Duane Tiernan and his mother Judy Tiernan.

Tim was a great lover of 50s and 60s music. His favorite song was "My Way" by Frank Sinatra, by which he lived his life. He was Irish and stubborn, but easy to love.

Tim was a Lieutenant with the fire company.
