Tim died four years ago, and the person who posted the death announcement is not a "regular" at Mudcat. It's unlikely we'll have more information.

Tim and I were first-cousins and grew up together in Glasgow, KY.   He was also my best friend.   We had years and years of doing all kinds of fun things together.   In the 70's, he became really interested in Mother Maybelle Carter & the Carter Family.   Through his forth-going personality, along with him, I was able to meet and befriend all the Carters, Maybelle, Sara, Helen, June, Anita, Carlene as well as Janette and all the Virginia Carters.   We started playing music together, him on autoharp and me on guitar and vocals, and played many, many places together as well as radio shows and a stint as regulars at the Renfro Valley Barn Dance.   We also made several recordings together.   He ended up in North Carolina in later years and we kept in close touch.   Shortly before his death, he recorded a CD of autoharp instrumentals.   His death came quick and unexpectedly and with his death, I lost my best friend.   I still miss him almost 8 years later.   It seems part of my livlihood died along with him.   He had a fun life and never met a stranger.   Anyone who knew him knows what I mean.   I miss you, Timmy!

There's not anything I can find online about him. Did he ever make any films or recordings of his work that you can share on YouTube or Vimeo or other sharing sites?

I lived in Glasgow, KY in the early 1980s, but wasn't there long enough to get to know much of the community music scene (I worked up in the Mammoth Cave area and commuted from Glasgow). Pretty area, nice place to grow up. My condolences - he was a very young man when he died, that had to make it all the harder.
