Tim was my "best friend" from 5th grade on.  He taught me more about fishing, hunting, camping, and general outdoorsmanship than anyone.  Many of my best memories from those years were adventures my brother Wally and I embarked on with Tim and his younger brother Mark.  My enjoyment of nature and the great outdoors hearken back to Tim and his boundless enthusiasm.  RIP friend.
