Tim was a good man. I beleive he had a few years experince at kiteboarding and probably 20 years+ at windsurfing. He live a few blocks from Lake Huron in Canada, was on the water as much as possible and knew his stuff. It was an unfortuante accident. He leaves behind a wife and two boys (14 and 12). He will be missed.

Tim was indeed a good man. He was very active in our local Tai Kwan Do club often lending his expertise to helping the young children in the club. He was a very involved father who enjoyed life and his family. Tim's passing is a great tragedy for all who knew him.
