Last week, we were saddened to learn of the death in a horrible car accident of Tim Gardner, who worked with Franchise Update Media Group and spent much time prepping, interviewing and generally assisting franchisees for their media productions. Tim died in a horrible car accident last Wednesday evening, June 11 in California. He was a truly wonderful young man and we all share our thoughts and prayers for his parents, Therese and Gary, the rest of Tim’s family and the team at Franchise Update. There are two philanthropic programs near to Tim’s heart to which you can contribute in his name. Habitat for Humanity of East Bay Silicon Valley and the Santa Clara Humane Society. A memorial service will be held today, June 20 at 1:30 PM at the Bellarmine College Prep’s Leontyne Chapel.
