December 25, 1957 - August 15, 2015
He was a soldier working for a cause non-stop. For the fourth straight year, he had planned for the next event as soon as the last was over. There was not a moment lost.
His cause, our cause, was imminent on his mind, with his wife always by his side . . .
The day he didn't return will always be etched on our minds. We will be forever grateful for Tim and his non-stop determination and dedication to make the next one better than the last. His inspiration will be with us forever. He will continue from above.
Services for Tim Raber, long-time CATRA volunteer, are planned for 11 am on Friday August 21 at the LCBC Church, 2392 Mount Joy Road, Manheim.
