  1. Tim was an interesting soul. A little “outside the curve”, but that developed his extreme creativity. He was really smart but also really quirky, not a bad combination.

  2. Tim was a past employee. I hired him at KEZX in 1976 to be an on-air voice. He was 18, inexperienced and often mispronounced words. Had a decent set of pipes.

    He was coachable. Rarely repeated the same error.

    We went to see Star Wars with my wife when it came out, he became a big fan and his work nickname became Shookie the Wookie.

    I left broadcasting a couple if years later and hired him at a scuba company where I did the marcomm work. His job was to make wetsuit and other equipment. That did work out.

    In 2017 I was in Seattle on a trip back from Blaine to ny Portland home and stopped at the Northgate McDonald’s to get a snack, wow…there he was. Hadn’t really changed in nearly 25 years.

    Oh well. Can’t say I’ll miss him, but that’s from an employers viewpoint.
