Just saw this post and I am shocked & very saddened by this news. I personally met Tim in Plano TX a few years back when I was still living in Dallas TX. He was a great Porsche enthusiast and a true friend, always ready to help-out. Back then (~2006) I was new to Porsche & on this forum and he immediately stands out thanks to his kindness and great sense of humor. We kept in touch via email and now I will miss him very much. My most sincere and also deepest condolences to his friends and family. RIP Tim...

condolences. He was one of the best members on any car forum I've ever been in. He helped make my decision to buy a 911, and he helped my ownership experience that much better.

Rest in peace.

Sorry to hear of Tim's passing. He made this forum very entertaining and he knew how to welcome every new member. He was a master at making fun of himself as well especially when he sold his Porsche and replaced it with a Honda.He seemed to bounce back when faced with life's challenges and he did it with humor.He will be missed.

Sad that I had to do so.

Tim touched a lot of people. Sadly, many of them have now moved on from here and will probably not see this, but I figured that it appropriate to try to spread the word among those of us that knew him.

I hope that he passed knowing the positive legacy he left behind. It's nice to see the memories that people had of him posted here. Lots of common themes about his humor, knowledge and helpfulness. In his own modest fashion I'm sure he would be quite embarrassed.

I am sad to learn and pass along that our old friend Gota911 passed away on August 10th. Some of us have been in touch with him for many years and were saddened by his cancer diagnosis. He was a truly great Porsche owner and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. It's sad to hear of his passing. We was a fighter, but this one beat him way too quickly.

Wow, I'm very sorry to hear this news.

I remember Tim from back in his 996 owning days (before he moved up to his 997). He was the guy that would always hound newbies to post pics of their cars, which I believe is why he received the title of "Hospitality Director" or something to that effect.

Although I didn't know Tim well personally, I did enjoy reading his posts and he seemed like a great guy. RIP Tim...and prayers out to his family.

Wayne, thanks for taking the time to post the sad news of Tim's passing. He is one of the nicest Porsche guys that I have ever had the privilege of chatting with. He always had a kind word for everybody. He was truly an inspiration. I hope his family and friends take comfort in knowing that he is with his son. He will be missed.

I missed this thread. Thanks for posting Wayne. The 996 forum back in the days was a lot of fun and Tim was a big part of it. RIP..

:thumb: It's good to see you guys again. It's sad that it's under these circumstances.

So, how many rebuilt salvage cars have I missed since you sold the Maserati?

Hi Wayne. I hope you and your family are well. The Maserati cured my car addiction. I haven't bought another project car since I sold the Maserati. My Porsche is still the most dependable car that I have ever owned.

Wow! Now, that's talent going unused! I used to love to see your rebuild projects. How is retirement going? How is the land project going? I remember you buying land and plans to build - how did that go?

Wayne, thanks. Retirement is great. I highly recommend it. We bought a house on a few acres, overlooking a river. We were happy to escape CA. Idaho is amazing. Lots of 2nd amendment supporters. I hope you are still enjoying the 911 and M3.
