 Tim was a student of forestry and prided himself on his extensive knowledge of trees and lumber grown locally and exotic woods from across the world.  He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed tying his own flies and fishing rivers and streams throughout New York State.  Tim enjoyed hunting turkey and deer and especially loved hunting waterfowl from his canoe on the Oswayo and Allegany rivers and with his beloved Labrador retrievers throughout Cattaraugus County.  Tim enjoyed gardening and was known for his bountiful vegetable gardens.  He also enjoyed collecting antique fishing lures and native American artifacts.  He loved playing cribbage, basketball and volleyball.  He loved watching all sports and complaining about the Bills.  He was a voracious reader.  He loved listening to all kinds of music.
