My father and I were lucky to met Tim and be on Cable Country. That started a friendship I’ll never forget. Believe we appeared again and then three or four times on radio 910. He came over and pick through my shop different times and I would run into him at auctions from time to time. Why can’t more people be more like Tim ??? The world would be such a better place, period !!! Happy Trails Tim Cable , Until We Meet Again… Mike McIntosh ,Model A Mac’s ,Unicoi…

Tim was such a kind man, I called him when my grandfather turned 80 and he came out and filmed
a spot on him because he still worked and drove heavy equipment, we still have the copy and I’m so thankful, we actually used it at my grandfather’s funeral.. Thank you Tim Cable and may God Bless your family

So sad to hear this news. Tim was a real jewel to our region, meeting, greeting and telling the stories of so many great people here. Having the medium of television, he inspired so many with his manner, his talent, his stories. Everyone in the tv industry could learn a lot from that; having the platform to inform, inspire and become friends across the air waves that are meaningful to so many and that last. God bless this family during this difficult time.
