Chamber Link December 2014 14 Diplomat of the Month What volunteer organizations are you involved with? I am involved with the Greater Chamber of Commerce, the Morning Rotary Club, and Providence Ministries. Dalton Funeral Home also provides a meal and entertain- ment to Whitfield Place each quarter. I especially enjoy when the Rotary Club helps with Special Olympics. What are some of your favorite places to travel? I love to combine traveling with a bike trip. One of my favorite trips was to Bar Harbor, Maine. I biked Acadia National Park for several days and enjoyed the serenity and beauty the park had to offer. Who has served as your mentor? I have known my mentor for most of my life and he is Mr. J.B. Whitfield. Mr. Whitfield taught me lessons on how to run a business; but, most importantly Mr. Whitfield taught me to treat all people the same…with respect and dignity. What lessons did you learn from your family about being successful? I was always taught to follow my passion. It takes a lot of hard work to start a business, but when it is your passion in life, you enjoy every second of the journey. What has been your biggest triumph? My biggest triumph was when I was able to start my own funeral home. I have been in the funeral business for over 25 years, and it was extremely gratifying to be able to start my own funeral home and help families. Tim Rowe Q & A with Diplomat of the Month Tim Rowe
