While living in the Yakima, Washington area Tim worked as a cook, chef, restaurant manager and briefly managed a small family orchard.

Tim loved the Grand Canyon and went there often to hike, float the river and explore. He also traveled to Kenya, China, Venezuela, the United Kingdom and Czechoslovakia. Tim enjoyed backpacking, fly fishing and outdoor/wildlife photography. He had a significant passion for cooking, much to the enjoyment of his family and friends.

Preceded in death by his parents, Tim is survived by his brothers Jon (Kathy) and Chris (Bernadette); sisters Lyn and Suzy; nieces Christina Morehead, Allison (Tristan) Parke, and Emily Matson; nephews Nick and Spencer Homer; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. We will miss his intellect, humor and gift of storytelling. There are no services planned but the family suggests that a gift in Tim’s memory to Congregations for The Homeless in Bellevue, Washington would be well received.

In the early spring when we begin to see
Overgrown bushes, shrubs and trees
Look in your heart and there he’ll stand
With that big beautiful smile and clippers in hand
