Local man asks for helping hand in time of turmoil

Posted: Updated:

When Reese High School sports seasons are in full swing and the lights are shining bright you'll see Tim Sheridan on the sidelines snapping memorable moments.

"High school sports, I love high school sports, I shoot it all," Sheridan said.

"He's a great fan of the Reese Rockets, goes to all the games, does the photography, he's a great supporter of the Reese Rockets," Reese resident Keith Trombley said.

But Sheridan is in front of the camera as he tries to make sense of what has been a terrible year.

“Look out my window and all I could see was orange," Sheridan said.

Early Thanksgiving morning, he woke up to the sound of popping and watched as his garage burned to the ground.

In the ashes, some of his photography equipment, a motorcycle, nearly $15,000 of woodworking tools, and irreplaceable memories. Including memories of his father, who died a week before and who his family buried just hours before the fire.

“All kinds of family things that can't be replaced," Sheridan said.

And he worries about what his insurance will cover.

“The insurance that I had, I had some shingles that were curled up on it, they were going to cancel my insurance, so they basically made me sign a waiver that said the garage was excluded, so I don't know what's going to be covered, other than the motorcycle," Sheridan said.

He said he's holding it together but is left hoping for a helping hand this Thanksgiving.

“When I think about what was in here, it is just heartbreaking," Sheridan said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up on Sheridan's behalf. CLICK HERE to donate.
