It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our dear friend, Tim Mundy, who was taken unexpectedly from the Dude Solutions family on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. We are extremely saddened to inform you of his passing.
Tim started his journey at the Dude on January 24, 2005, with a thirst for knowledge, zest for life, and a servant's heart. He was the epitome of The Dude from the very beginning, always giving of his time and talents to clients and coworkers unselfishly. He would often preface calls with clients by quipping, "If you can understand a country boy with a country accent, then you'll be okay." With his self-deprecating humor he would tell everyone he was our "Resident Redneck," a term of endearment he heartily embraced. With his favorite saying, "GIT'R-DONE!" and a smile on his face, Tim would indicate readiness to tackle the tasks of the day, exclaim success with a client, or express enthusiasm for accomplishing something he was he was working on with his fellow Dudes.
Tim was a thought leader in inventory management who loved helping countless clients realize savings in a myriad of ways while passing on his knowledge and striving to ensure everyone he worked with was successful. There were few issues that stumped him and even then, he would dive in with his cheerful spirit and begin to figure it out, no task too big.
At SchoolDude University, Tim would lend his musical talents to the Sunday morning church service playing keyboard. He could be counted on to be one of the first to arrive and last to leave the Learning Lab, making sure every client was taken care of no matter what. Tim also knew no strangers; he made you feel like you had known him forever after spending only 5 minutes with him.
Our time with Tim was too short. He was more than a trusted adviser and coworker over the last 11 years. Tim Mundy was our friend and brother, mentor and counselor. We will miss his infectious smile and humor, caring nature, and tremendous work ethic that he blessed us with daily. We will all certainly strive to continue the legacy he built at the Dude and with many of you. As Tomi Phillip from North Slope Borough Schools in Alaska said, "He had our light shining bright on success even during our 24 hour darkness days." Tim will shine brightly in our hearts as we continue the journey. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Thank you Tim, you GOT'R-DONE.
