    I never met him and I don't have any pictures, but he posted what I would call my all time favorite post on this forum and I saved it.

    Ask around, look around, you'll see a trend, I along with others have made comment to this observation.

    From the Alpine Loop, April 11, 2014. First time I met Tim, and last time I wheeled with him.

    Wondered what happened to him. Saddened to hear about this.

    Just to let you know I have the jeep back here at home near ST. Louis MO along with most all of his stuff. He was cremated in AZ and we brought him back here. He is buried at Jefferson National Cemetery overlooking the Mississippi River and farther out, his home town. His son lives in Philly and I m trying to gather as many pix and videos as I can for him to remember his dad. Sorry to be a little strange about the earlier post but I really didn't know how to approach anybody about this issue and knew most would be a little skeptical.
    If you would please send anything you have to 1explorer at charter dot net.
    If you have anything at all it will really mean a lot to us and his son if you would share!
    Sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. I think it is a great thing that you are gathering wheeling pictures for his son to remember him by.

    I am not sure how old is son is, but if at some point you and his son are in Phoenix and interested in a day out on the trail to experience what Tim enjoyed doing, we would be glad to take you guys out on a trail run with a group of the VJC guys. Being a father of a 2 year old, if something were to happen to me, I would like someone to show my son what I was into if he wasn't old enough have memories of wheeling with me. Pretty much anyone on this thread could put something together, so let us know.

    I may have pics also, will look later today. I only wheeled with him one time.

    He was a blast to wheel with! Always talking and joking, I would hear a noise, thinking it was a desert animal, but it was Tim behind me talking smack!

    I haven't found any pictures yet, but will keep looking. One of the runs I remember with him was Elvis. He was determined he was going to make the Up and Over, even with a lake underneath it. He hit the gas, and broke a bunch of stuff. And smiled. :-)

    Glad this thread turned out to not be a bad case of the creepies but of love and consideration for those we've spent time with and lost. This why this forum is unlike others. I hope everyone can continue bringing up their pictures and old memories. RIP Tim

    What a shame about Tim. Really surprising to hear this since he was in pretty good shape. It's nice that he can be memorialized a bit here. I also liked what he was doing with his Jeep build. 38" tires with 4 inches of lift. I think he even had 40's on it at one time.




    Here’s a video of him playing in a parking lot. Fun stuff:







    Here’s a shot of his arrival at the run on the day ToyzukiJohn passed.







    Here are some shots of Tim watching stupid people do stupid things:
