Born in Edison, NJ, he was the loving son of James and Evelyn Piazza.
Tim had resided in Readington Township his whole life.
He was a graduate of Hunterdon Central Regional High School where he played football and was also on the spring track team, taking part in shot put, javelin and discus. He was a Red Devil Ambassador at Hunterdon Central and participated in the school’s Teen Prevention Education Program. He volunteered with the Hunterdon Outreach Program to help teach special needs children football, basketball and baseball and took part in the Hopeful Holidays and Readington’s Holiday Gifts Program, donating Christmas and holiday gifts to those in need.
