My condolences to the entire Coyne family. Although I knew Tim for quite awhile it wasn't until he lived on my block, Bragg Street, in Brooklyn that I got to know him well. We traded lifeguard and swimming stories and talked about the Surf Club. I watched him fly down the street on his electric skateboard and walk his dog every night. (unleashed and on the run of course!) He had a great attitude and brought a lot of laughs to the whole block! We all miss him! RIP Tim

Oh that smile! Tim is that rare person who loved people; truly. loved. us. His positive outlook, his can do attitude, his rambunctious nature, these traits, and more, made him stand out from the crowd. His love of family and country was exemplary, and indelible. He was a hero in every sense of the word. He will live on in our hearts and memory. We truly mourn this loss.
Dana Weiner left a message on August 22, 2021:
Sorry for your loss! Didn’t know Tim that long but he was a really nice guy. We were very glad he bought the house across the street n rented to nice people. Loved seeing him on his cycle. Praying for strength for you all!

Tim, So terribly saddened to hear of your sudden passing Always enjoyed Sunday trips to Brooklyn visiting Uncle Eddie, Aunt Eileen and the Coyne cousins playing bumper pool in the basement. You always smiling teasing and sharing funny stories. Can you believe our parents and Aunt Joan retired to the STD capital in "The Villages" You were friends with my wife Brenda on Facebook (I have boycotted and maybe should reconsider). I am sooo looking forward to meeting Timmy Jr and watching you together so meaningful as we have really enjoyed viewing your posts and videos together. This storm "Henry" yeah they spelled it wrong caused my flights to cancel and unable to attend today and tomorrow but know today's mass at 5:15 will be prayers for you, Jr, Eddie, Tommy, Jimmy and Michael and each of our family members who welcomed you in Heaven. May your "SOUL SHINE" down upon each person mourning your loss each day forward! With Love and God's Blessings, Mike

Prayers & Blessings to the Coyne Family. I grew up with Tim and we shared happy times as Rockaway Beach Lifeguards. Proud to have journeyed in our respective walks in life with our Brother Tim. . We both took the path of serving our Lord through our vocation as law enforcement officers and service in every role assigned in life. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16

Timmy I can’t believe your gone. You were at my house 3 or 4 times a week. Just recently you jumped in my pool got out and scared the blank out of my wife.I appreciated you always dropping by on your Vespa or foldable bike or car or sometimes your bmw bike. We had so many good times, laughing and laughing. My friends keep calling because many of them knew you, you were always here. I hope Timmy will still come by and play basketball with my boys or with that awesome light saber you got him. Van Morrison was one of your favorites we listened to at winter fires in the front yard. Can’t believe we just ate at DeNinos. You are a dear and true friend and may God Bless Your Soul.

My deepest condolences to the Coyne family. I have known Timmy my entire life from being born on Troy Ave 15 months apart to now being Jersey neighbors (with a gap of a decade or two for families and careers). I can remember more than one night when I young I would wake up and look out my bedroom window in the middle of the night and Timmy would be floating in my parents pool. Never asked him why he was in the pool in the middle of the night - it was Timmy. The last couple of years we reconnected and it was like we had last seen each other the day before. Timmy would stop by the house – grab himself a cup of coffee and then the stories would flow. Those stories are priceless. I keep looking thinking he will pull up in the driveway on his Vespa. I will miss your laugh, your company, your smile (with the twinkle in your eye) and your friendship. Rest easy Timmy.

Tim was always good for a laugh. I remember seeing him in uniform at the Seaport and he had all the folks in stitches. When he found out I was and Elvis fan, he made a CD for me. It’s in my car and when I play it I always say “thanks Tim”. Now it will have a special meaning for me. So very sorry, he will be greatly missed. Ann
