If anyone is interested in putting a face with the name, I found Timothy's obituary online. 59 is so young. It sounds like he only recently retired and from what I gathered from his posts, he was just beginning to enjoy it. How very sad that he passed away in the prime of his life.

Oh what sad news! Like Steve, I had hoped that his absence had a temporary meaning but I think this was in the back of many of our minds. I know he missed his deceased wife very much and I hope they are together again. He was such bright, interesting and articulate part of Discuss Cooking, and he will be sorely missed.

Snip, we have certainly all missed you also and so glad to see you again.
Welcome home!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Not to be disrespectful of how saddened we all are to hear this, but one of the things I learned when a friend's husband passed away quite suddenly at the age of 57 is to make sure you have an index card with all your passwords and lists, forums, etc., to which you belong so s/one can remove your accounts and also let on-line friends know. I have several PMs from Timothy. I hope he's working the hydroponic garden where he is now. He was so excited about getting that up and running this spring. And I hope s/one is taking care of both his cats--the outdoor one and the indoor one. So sad.

Thank you for letting us know about Tim.
Please give my deepest condolences to his sister for me. Tim was a very kind hearted person. He will be sorely missed around here.

On a side note:
The Bravillian Cult we recruited him into will always have his seat reserved. It was a blast for me to see how he and so many more of us, some that I never would have thought would buy one, actually did.We had good times sharing recipes and tricks with that pie maker.

Here's the start of his induction. He loved that thing. Breville's Personal Pie

He will be missed.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

my worst fears confirmed...tim brought a rich banquet of delights to our dc table every single day. he offered sweet generous compassion to anyone suffering, unhappy or ill. tim was constantly spinning out new threads with his own special dishes and recipes, offering his personal bend of flavors, ideas and opinions he shared so openly with us. i'll long remember his unique sense of humor--squirrels defiantly scrubbing their little armpits--hilarious stuff like that--stories about his beloved cats and their quirky ways...his own inimitable, lovable, quirky ways...tim, i'm so sorry to lose you--miss you man...............

tim was an interesting guy. a bit of a pain the ass at times, but that was because he was such a passionate guy. he didn't just chat about passing interests; he'd talk, and joke, and debate and argue many things because he really loved everything that interested him.

he really lived.

he has been and will continue to be missed.
