I along with J2D, JIA, and a few others had the pleasure to meet Tim a few months back in person. Jason took those awsome pics of Tim's Hummer to put in the mag and we all went to a local spot to do some wheeling. Tim was a great guy and superbly talented. He could lay paint, braze frames, and gifted with a incredible mind when it came to fabrication. His 1:1's were also top notch and carried his trade mark skill. He will be truly missed and I feel blessed to have known and met him in person. One of the true credits to the hobby and to the skills he had mastered. Go rest Tim......we'll see you on the other side.

Wow I had no idea. I didn't know him personally but I did know his builds, and a few of his have inspired and influenced my builds. I knew him simply as Kingcobra.

May you rest in peace!

Rest In Peace KingCobra. I am sitting here at work re-reading the hummer article now. Very talented guy, and from what I gethered by reading a lot of his posts he was a very nice guy as well. My family's prayers will be with him and his family. At least he is no longer suffering the pain and tiredness.

RIP Tim. Never met him, but he inspired me greatly, with his talent and good nature here on the forum.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.

I feel bad for never have had the chance to get to know Tim, but I can tell you that his builds will stay alive on this board for years to come. We all know that he is building the ultimate scalers where he is now!!

Oh Man this is Terrrible, He always had the best builds and a great attitude towards people. I think we should dedicate some builds to him and make sure he is remembered by everyone.

I'm shocked!! It gave me the creep as I read this about some minutes ago.

I very much regret to lose a member of our big family. It is always hard to lose someone.

My deepest commiseration and condolence to his family and to all who have known him as a friend.

Sheesh! Man what a shame! R.I.P. my friend.
I was floored when I received & read the email today.
How did they find this out about his death?
I loved looking at your builds. They always were great, top notch rides.

I just sold him a parma good time hemi corvette not to long ago.He really liked it and I held it for him. I could have sold it sooner but didnt. I asked him to keep me up to date with the progress of the vette. But I guess things got too hard on him. Im wondering what will happen with that vette build now..... Can anyone find out for me. Yes I know this isnt a great time to talk about it but Im very curiuos as I only sold it to him as I knew he wanted it and liked it alot. Sorry if this sounds rude, I dont mean it to be but if someone can find out please let me know.

R.I.P. Bud! You and your creations/knowledge/and company will be missed.
Anyone ever think of doing a memory thread of all his builds? I know a great one to start with. 3/2005 This inspired me to get a twin force back then.

never met him personally, but always had a great time joking and watching his builds here on the boards. you will be missed KC (never knew him as Tim), wherever your new journey takes you, may it be a good one.

you'll definitely be missed.
