Welcome to Tim McArdle's Memorial Page.

John Timothy McArdle was born in Los Angeles on July 22, 1944. Tim attended St Elisabeth School in Van Nuys, Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Santa Clara University, and Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.

 He spent most of his career in management for the State of California Employment Development Department, where he eventually became an administrative law judge, presiding over hundreds of cases each month.

Below are memories of Tim's rich and wonderful life.

Speeches will be added.

This webpage will be here indefinitely.
