Been asked to let everyone know that may have Met Tim at a ww2 game etc that he passed away this weekend at the age of 55, Just as he was about to begin the new and exciting part of his life in the van, I have been told both of his dogs have been rehomed :)

I am sure we can all agree he was a great chap and a real asset to the ww2 groups, got me into the Gebirgsjäger loadout. which I still love and will find a reason to wear again soon :)

When I know the Funeral details etc I will post in case anyone else wants to attend

a great loss :(-- attachment is not available --

RIP Tim

Pleasure to attend games and socials with him. Just such a shame he has proved himself right when he said he did not come from a long lived line.

My god, I can't believe that. We all had a great evening of yah-hooing before the Vierville game and Tim was on fine form. That is very sad news, he was a genuinely kind and generous bloke.

I second that. So glad I was one of the few who had a drink and a laugh with Tim that evening. It was sad to hear that he was stepping down from WW2 Airsoft but this is so sad. A true gent who will be sorely missd. RIP dear friend :(

RIP mate

I am gutted to hear this. Tim was such a genuinely nice fella. As Chris said above, he was also responsible for my turning to the dark side and getting my Gebirgsjäger gear. A very sad day.

Unfortunately I only know of Tim from this forum & only a handful of games that we both attended at the same time & what I remember of the man was that he was just like the rest of us, loved running around with toy guns shooting each other & enjoying a good laugh at the end of the day.
May he RIP.
Peter

Absolutely gobsmacked, a great bloke and a credit to the game, I always aspired to achieve the level of realism of his kit, especially the pipe :D (but I don't smoke!) not to mention the quality and effort he put into builds and props, he will definitely be a loss to the hobby.

Chris do you know if the funeral will be up north or down south where I think his family was from? If I can I'd like to attend and pay my respects.

Really sad news, I saw and chatted to him at the Vierville game, he seemed in fine fettle. He was a lovely guy a pleasure to have known him. -- attachment is not available --

It was an absolute pleasure to be an 'Inglorious Basterd' alongside Tim over the last couple of years, he truly was a lovely chap & we will miss him immensely. :(

Very, very sad to have heard this (also seen on FB). Shared some good times with Tim, we shared a similar mindset to WW2 games and, to life in general and, he was a staunch supporter of CiA. My thoughts go out to his family and, I'll raise a glass or few to him, just as he would have wanted. RIP mate.



When I want your opinion - I'll tell you what it is!

He was a real gent indeed and put as much effort as possible into everything he did, I was always very impressed with the effort he put into his kit. I met him through ww2 airsoft but became good friends with him over the last year or so as we put together Napoleonic airsoft. This included an excellent road trip to Scotland together to attend one of Warrens Flintsoft games, which really was a weekend full of laughter. It's this weekend I'll remember him by, Rip mate, and if anyone finds out funeral arrangements before I do, please let me know, as I will if I find out.
