Tim was a collector and curator of many things, thoroughly enjoying the history of the towns he had resided in and many of the artifacts he collected over the years. He and his beloved wife, Ann, studied pottery together at Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute. They have continued to pursue this interest in their own pottery studio.
By being a lover of life, Tim was naturally drawn to people. Their interests and well- being became his interest. Tim was an excellent listener and communicator, who willingly took on research projects for the benefit of others and for his own education.
With all this being shared, it’s obvious that Tim would also be a gourmand and a fantastic cook, who loved to plan menu’s and peruse the grocery aisles.
Tim was gentle, kind, loving, whose humor tickled many. He was a man who brought great joy to us all.
