Oh my God. No, no, no  :'(

This is indeed too sad and unexpected.  My thoughts are with his loved ones (and the members of our AM circle who will forever miss him);  he is (I just can't say was) such an integral part of this community.

I think it's appropriate to consider Daddy Tim's last post in this place:

Quote
Joe,

Thanks for this thread, I guess.  Sometimes when I think back, it makes me sad, and then other times it makes me happy.  When HIV is thrown into the mix, it is almost always thoughts of devastation.  I remember visiting friends living in their cars, under the freeway with thier pets, simply because landlords had the ability to still evict, due to HIV.  The utter hopelessness, and sorrow was too much for any of us "normal" humans to witness, but we did, and we somehow survived that desperate time.

I have burried about 210 people to this disease currently, and it never gets any easier to say goodbye, so now I just say I'll see you soon enough.  There is certainly a void, and there is little to fill that void anymore.

Em, No, to my knowledge this type of film has never been made, but for sure, it would be awakening if done well and with the right amount of truth about the past.  Truth after all is the only thing that makes for a quality product anymore. 

(link)

He posted that on June 12. A little look through his recent posting history suggests he was quite ill at the time.

Of course my most heartfelt condolences go out to his beloved partner Bob.

Vale Daddy. Matty the Damned loves you and will never forget you. :'(

Tim could get all riled up sometimes but that was part of his charm. He was at heart a sweet and generous man.

He mentioned dying in one of his recent posts:

Unfortunately also, the HIV war is now on the back burner for both congress, and the White house here in the U.S.  Oh well, I hope everyone that is HIV+ has known of this mess in the United States for a while has loads of money, because these meds cost a fortune, and I can't afford them, but I'm 63 and have had a really good life, so if I die now, so be it.

This is so very sad.  My thoughts are with his family.  I feel really bad that my last interaction with him was a disagreement about my post about the porn actor who died from a fall.  He didn't like it and felt I was being immature---and, maybe he was right.  I had no idea he was ill.  It seems that is what people liked about him, though.  He spoke his mind.  I especially liked his tag line about the Bible.  I've taken that and used it in debates.

Dirge without Music
Edna St. Vincent Millay
I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.

Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you.
Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust.
A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew,
A formula, a phrase remains, --- but the best is lost.

The answers quick & keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,
They are gone. They have gone to feed the roses. Elegant and curled
Is the blossom. Fragrant is the blossom. I know. But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.

Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Tim was one of the first that I met on here some 5 years ago, and throughout the years I came to respect him even more.  He will be truly missed.  My condolences to his partner, his family, and his online family here.  Rest in peace Tim

I'm completely devastated by this horrible news.  Tim was one of the oldest veterans of this viral (and political) war and had much knowledge and wisdom to impart and almost thirty years of experience in the trenches to share.  Many did not want to listen, which is another tragedy.  His kindness and willingness to help were overwhelming. 

I'm doubly grieved by the knowledge that he had recently become pessimistic about our struggle.  This is now particularly painful.  In one of his last posts, on June 9, in response to one of my ADAP funding posts, he wrote:

"I am not as hopeful or positive as I have been in the past, because really, nobody really cares anymore, and they are tired of the HIV pandemic, which in their minds will go away if they just ignore it.  I guess we'll see how this thread goes, but I would be surprised if it got anyone who is a member here pissed off enough to really do anything about it but complain more and more."   

In Tim's memory, please do some small something about it. 

Requiescat in pace, dearest Moffie.

I am stunned. This is definitely going to take some time to process -- I'm sure many of us who have known Tim for as long as we have are feeling this way.

For more than four years, Moffie was a tremendous personality in these forums. While many members here -- moderators notwithstanding -- found themselves on the receiving end of Tim's "passion," his frustration and let-me-tell-you-something communication approach came from a place of intense love and deep-seated concern for his HIV-positive and at-risk peers.  Moffie was a long-term survivor of this dreaded viral disease -- all he ever wanted, for the rest of us, was the same... preferably a life without first-hand knowledge of the often sugar-coated realities of the disease.

Tim's love of life--including Bob, his friends, his cars, his motorcycle, his travels and his work--cannot possibly be tabulated. This is evident in his many forums posts and certainly wasn't lost on those of us who were fortunate to have a relationship with him away from these pages. I, for one, will miss our infrequent-yet-robust communications via e-mail and phone.

Moffie certainly taught me a thing or two about a thing or two -- I'm sure many of us can say the same. It's certainly going to take some time to fully comprehend that we've all lost someone incredibly special. Very said.

Tim

I've been somewhat absent from the forums lately, and this is the first post I read upon returning.  This is a real shock.  I guess, to me, he was such a fighter that I thought he'd be around for a lot longer, if not indefinitely. 

Tim was part of that group of members here that offered support, advice, etc to me when I first joined 4.5 years ago.  We met Tim in Montreal... what a character!  We've butted heads a few times online, but that did not diminish the respect that I have for him.  If I could describe Tim, it would be caring, stubborn, concerned, angry, passionate, and honest (about things HIV).  He was a unique man who will be missed by many.

Hold On

Hold on to what is good,
Even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I'll be gone away from you.



Tim and I would chat several times a year. He inspired me, challenged me, angered me at times, but I always respected him and his words gave me strength. I'll miss him tremendously. For now I need some time to process, this news is a shock of unprecedented proportions.

I am sitting here shedding tears for someone that I never met in person, but touched my life in such a profound way. He helped me so much when I first came here. He helped me understand what hubby would be going thru and the ways that I could help him. As the HIV- wife of a HIV+ hubby he helped me deal with my own fears and concerns regarding HIV. I will forever be grateful for his kind words, advice, and the encouragement he gave me.

My heartfelt condolences to Bob

I'm in shock and totally numb - aside from feeling nauseous. I just can't believe that after all he's survived, he's gone from us so quickly.

I'm devastated, angry, sad... but those words don't even begin to scratch the surface. I've just found one member of my family but lost another. Life can be so cruel at times.

On the other hand, knowing Tim's spiritual beliefs, he's soaring through the universe and re-connecting with loved ones who went before. That's a small comfort.

My thoughts are with Bob - and all of us - who lost a man who made a positive, loving difference in the world.

As Tim would say, pray for whirled peas. 

In profound sadness,

It's difficult to accept what's happened, considering it being so close to Lisa and Ric.  I sorta expect Tim to come in here and cuss us all out.  Maybe that helps to not trigger my own fears about mortality (and HIV).  Tim seemed to care so much for a lot of members here, so my condolences to so many here and to Bob.

Tim seemed to think many of us newer positive folks didn't listen to him.  But I'm sure most of us did, even if we were too proud to admit it.  One things for sure, Tim won't ever be forgotten. 

I think that's as about as big of a mark you can leave on life.

No words I can write will make things well for his partner and family.  Instead I can only extend my condolences.  May Tim rest in peace and his family and partner find the strength to move forward with grace.

The measure of someone's greatness is often difficult to discern during life and sadly easier to measure with their passing.  Tim was certainly a great man in that he touched all of us here through this forum.  HIV never seems to stop taking and that is perhaps the greatest tragedy of the disease we have in common.  Everytime we blink it takes a friend and a source of wisdom.  Adding to what someone else said, there are now 600,001 gay men who are no longer with us, and that is 600,001 too many!  My count is probably off, but I think you get my point.

Tim will be sorely missed on these forums.
Don't obsess over the wrong things.  Life isn't about your numbers, it isn't about this forum, it isn't about someone's opinion.  It's about getting out there and enjoying it.   I am a person with HIV - not the other way around.

I always read Timís posts with interest, they were always thoughtful, passionate and had a depth of knowledge and understanding borne out of decades of witnessing the struggle against this disease.

The Forum will be a less well-informed and sadder place without him.

I can only add my condolences to those of all the others here, to Moffieís partner and family at this sad time.

Like others, this was such a startling shock to see this posted.

One of the highlights of my first AMG (Montreal 06) was an all day driving trip to Quebec City.  I was fortunate to be in the van piloted by Tim.  What an extraordinary man!  I was able to see the affable, gentle, loving side of him in addition to all of the other "sides" we have seen down through the years.  A relentless fighter for us...our loss is Heaven's gain!  While deeply saddened by his all-too-sudden parting, we have gained a real Saint who will look after us (heaven knows we need an advocate!)  Ric, Lisa, and now Tim in one year is a sobering reminder that death and parting remains a reality for all of us. 

My condolences to Tim's partner and extended family.

I almost write you an email today, Tim, even though I know you would never receive it.

My first (of many) fights on these boards were with you though in your case it was because I couldn't stand the truth that life with HIV was going to be hard work.  The work entailed in taking care of myself, protecting others and as you were often to say, getting my head out of my ass and showing my face to the world and fighting for my dignity and rights.

It's a damn scary world sometimes, Tim, but you would know that more than most.  The amount you buried, the amount you wept over and the amount of your vocal chords lost to screaming at uys blind sheep are a testament of that.   My fears are but fantasies compared to the strife you have experienced and seen.

I hope if anything that you take heart (cause I'll be damned if I don't believe you can't still hear me) that you were always a voice in my head when I started talking publicly about being HIV+.

I love you. I love the lessons you taught me.  I'm sorry I never made it to Las Vegas that time nor did I get a move on on visiting you.  The loss is mine and I feel it.

With all my respect and condolences to Bob and your respective families.

When I see a post like the one Lis had to post, an inevitable sickness comes over me before opening it to read the details of another loss, all too soon.  Tim was an invaluable member of our forums, his compassionate and most knowledgeable advice could be tough love as well whenever necessary and Tim was a good judge of when it was necessary and he pulled no punches indeed.  He was most generous with pointers as to what our disease was all about and how to live with it as well as possible.

We go back a long way here and I was blessed to first meet Moff in Toronto.  We had a blast as Gary says on our trip to Niagara Falls, Tim drove and it was a tremendous experience I'll never forget.  When we took the train to the CN Tower I walked a little too fast and poor Tim couldn't keep up.  I apologized but Tim was good natured, I just wanted to see as many fun things as possible with my wonderful, supportive new friends at Aidsmeds.com.  And I did.  The following year in Montreal we experienced Ric andThom's wedding, a most memorable time indeed.

Thanks Tim for being you, and I am all the better for having known you my dear friend.  Rest in peace fine man.

I am so sorry to hear of Moffie's passing.

One thing was for sure, he was no secret to himself.  The doors were flung wide open.

Rest in peace.

Tim,

Turn it up as loud as you want.

Drive as fast as you can..

You will do well my friend...  And, I know you already are..

Bob,  I know the pain,  stay strong and stay close to those you love.  They will pull you thru....  I know what Tim would tell you, but you already know...

In Love and Respect,

I am in total shock right now. Tim was a great person. I learned so much from him the past few years.
I will never forget you Tim. You were a great man.
I'm angry and in shock. You will be  missed my friend. I'm so glad I knew you.

Bob, my heart felt condolences. Rest in Peace now, Tim.

Haven't checked in here for a while and so shocked to hear this.
Moffie was the first to welcome me (with a rose) when I came aboard in 2005 searching for answers and
understanding. I remember a couple years ago he posted a pict of his new bike. I think it was pearl color.
Can't remember the make but it looked 1st class. I hope he got to enjoy it over time.
I firmly believe we go on to better and bigger after the short life on this place called earth.
I know moffie sure earned it. He's gone but he's still here all the same.
His words and wisdom never die.
Keep an eye on us Tim....  RIP

wow.  i, like many others, am speechless.  i have not posted/visited in a while but Moffie was, like with others, one of the first to welcome me and advise me when i first arrived here some 6 years ago after being diagnosed.  over time, it was clear to me that his wisdom and sage advice was invaluable to me and many others.  this is truly a terrible loss to the world.  RIP dear Moffie.  i know you will continue to watch over us and guide us through our battles with the same dignigy you lived your life.

I got this tragic news in an email from Sweetasmeli; I had not checked in the forums in a few days....

I am devastated by this news.  Three of my dear friends from the Forums, gone.....   

Thank you Lis, for letting us know honey.   I am shocked, and sad, and I feel very old all of a sudden....

Tim, I will miss you so much, dear man.   Remember in the "old" forums how he would greet each newcomer with a dozen roses (when we still had the rose icon)?   He was a lovely man....

In sorrow,

Alan   :'(

While I no longer participate in these forums, I do check them from time-to-time to see how folks are doing.
 
I am greatly saddened by this news.  Moffie was the first person to greet me some five years ago when I first turned up here, to give me a rose (a dozen, actually), and to comfort me that my life wasn't over just yet.  I found great comfort in the things he told me, both publicly and via PM, and he was instrumental in me picking myself up and getting on with things.  I owe him a debt of gratitude.

The world is a worse place without him in it.

My heartfelt condolences to his partner, family, and loved ones.

Fair Winds, Moffie.

  I feel a tremendous loss right now......., I met Tim in Toronto, and instantly loved this great, wise, and stubborn man with a wicked sense of humor. I was priveleged enough to watch a cd of his car club days, and lucky enough to be on the receiving end of his good advice. I spoke with Tim a couple of months back, and he told me "Brian, I always knew you would be just fine." I truly have lost a friend and mentor!

I have only been in this community a short time, but, Mofife was and will continue to be a big part of my own growing process here.  He, as well as many of you, helped me better understand and in turn, better cope with HIV.  My respect for you has no bounds. 
The loss to these forums is, in my opinion, very great. 

Rest In Peace

I too have been away from the forums with a few weeks, as I've been dealing with changing jobs and homes.  I nearly fell over when I heard that Moffie had passed away.  I valued the perspective and experience that he shared.  And even though I didn't always see eye-to-eye with him, I shall miss him.  I'm feeling sad, and can only imagine how sad his partner, family and friends are over losing him.

Moffie was one of the first to welcome me to our Forums.  He and Bob had lived on the Russian River, about a mile from where I do.  As he said, the Russian River needed a good activist on HIV and he was a tremendous help on my COA website.  At a party in San Francisco a couple of years ago, someone mentioned friends who had died of AIDS in the past 30 years.  That party became a reminder of Moffie's HIV Blog. 

He worked diligently for HIV funding in his Title II EMA, as I was trying to keep Title I funding in Sonoma County.  He founded a gay car club in San Francisco which put on a benefit for the Positive Resource Center during the time of AMG 07 and did not attend our gathering.  I never got to meet him in person but, there is a pink 1956 Cadillac in pristine condition here in Guerneville, I think of him every time I see that car.  I am saddened by our loss

Iím posting this here and in Timís memorial thread, so itís less likely to be missed by folk.

I think itís been about 2 years since I logged in here. Today Iím logging in with a message from Bob.

As some of you may remember, after meeting Tim in Las Vegas in 2007, I had the great fortune to share an unforgettable road trip with him across Arizona to go and spend some time at their place. They welcomed me into their home and life with warmth I shall never forget and I had the best time.

I spoke with Bob on the phone the other night. He wanted me to pass on his thanks to everyone here at Aidsmeds for your kind words, thoughts and gestures. He is extremely appreciative to you all.

I guess I should check back more often.

Daddy Tim gave me great words of comfort, both here and on the phone, during an especially challenging time in my life, aside from the daily wisdom he'd impart to everyone.

I shall always remember him best as the giver of roses from the old forum by way of welcoming n00bs. I always thought of him as the mayor of AM.

His death is a fundamental loss to our entire community and one that shocks and grieves me deeply personally.

I was shocked to hear this... All I can really say is that there is a wonderful HIV advocate missing in the world today.  Moffie was at the top of advocacy & always fought... I'm certain he will be missed by many.  I always respected him, and I can only hope & pray that he is in a better place.  Rest in peace Tim!!  Your memory will live on in the hearts of many people you've touch over the years.
