Tim had many hobbies and interests. He was an avid hiker and hiked extensively in the White and Green Mountains, the Smokies and the Rockies. Tim often hiked with friends, and he was always at the lead and carrying the heaviest pack. He had a love of birds and built and maintained elaborate feeders for them in his yard. Tim taught himself to play the guitar and keyboard. He loved and collected classic guitars. Tim also loved variety in his music- from old time blues to the latest from Phish.
