I am saddened and surprised to hear of tim's passing. I knew Tim throughout high school but got to know him best in Mr. Streator's advanced class as seniors. I was at his house once to play kick the can one summer evening and I sort of got to see how the Shorewood kids played. I recall a cantilever Frank Lloyd Wright type structure on his garage that seemed to make his place a little different and aristocratic. I believe Tim's father was an architect, too. Tim was ALWAYS good to me. He NEVER let me down as a friend and I will always remember him fondly. He really was very smart and everyone knew that, but he never flaunted his intelligence. He and Mike Fullwood carried around cans of "Goldwater" in 1964; the can looked like Mountain Dew and tasted like it, too. I enjoyed talking politics with Tim.
