Well said,Dallas.

RIP Tim.

I never met him but he was the first person I made a purchase from here on Pirate, I'm still using some of the saw blades I bought from him.

RIP

The story eerily reminded me of what happened to Mossberg years ago. So sad.

Me too. Especially the early link delete. However, Tim didn't have a shootout with police and chp like mossberg did and his friends trying to keep that from everyone

Sucks that it happened, my condolences to Tim's family and children.

So sad to hear, Tim was one of those people that we always looked forward to competing with and just hanging out with at events.
Prayers to family and friends.

Just heard about this and my heart goes out to his family. Seems like yesterday we were standing at the top of backdoor at KOH11 introducing ourselves. Very likable guy and I talked with him for a half hour like two old boys would do. The mutual respect of tough competitors was immediate. Life's a trippy sumbitch. See ya on the other side man.

Tim was a great guy. He will be missed.

Has anything been set up for his family?

Planning on being there.

Many members of my family who met Tim were very sad and wish his family well.

Met Tim through Pirates 8 years ago and since that time he did my home AC and then a few years ago my home heater. So sorry for all of our loss. RIP.

Rest in peace.

I may be out of line, but I do believe it is every persons basic human right to end their own life.

In this life, nobody has answers, nobody can look into the others mind. You just never know what others demons actually look like.

Miss the big fella.

We did one for a friend up in Vegas. I don't know if it's still there, but at the time BLM never went out that way, so I hope it is.
