We have so many fond memories of "Uncle Tim" and you've listed only a few of the attributes that came to my mind. Always a delightful participant in anything he endeavored. He blessed our family get togethers with his love of so many things. He's an inspiration to put love of God, family, humor, adventure, and integrity at the top of your life! He studied many things and mastered much!
I worked for the Bureau of Reclamation as a pipe designer for many years and always enjoyed working with “Tim” on several ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and AWWA (American Water Works Association) pipe standards. Although Tim had the technical expertise to solve almost any complex problem, he was always trying to simplify the pipe standards for someone like the City Engineer in “Cut and Shoot, Texas”. When I first heard this name, I thought he had to be making this up. Later I found this city on a map in Texas. Leo Kinney
