I met TIm around 1968, when he was still living in Winslow. Back in the '70's, before he became known as Whitey, some of us Penobscot County boys knew Tim as "Ten Diamonds." This was after I first met him at Hinckley, and he moved just north of Bangor.

I always thought I'd see Ten Diamonds again, although I hadn't heard from him for over 20 years. Maine lost a brilliant son when Tim left for Alaska.

I was pleased to read he had such a community of friends on the Kenai. And not the least surprised - he was a great listener with a splendid sense of humor. We will all miss him.

Tim and I went to the Hinckley School together in Maine circa 1970...He was a warm hearted guy who always had something positive to say,and he was funny! He sat in with our band occasionally and his enthusiasm was sky high..RIP "Whitey" and know that you touched countless hearts with your positive spirit....

I just found out and am very sorry to hear this and to not have had contact with Tim in many years. We were teenage friends (Hinckley School) and shared some great times, and a love of music. I went on do a lot things with it, and so did he. I went on the road for years and am currently the head of a college music dept. in the Chicago area. Tim schooled me on the roots that I appreciate, play, and teach about.

I moved to the Kenai from Philadelphia back in 2002 with AmeriCorps and Whitey, well, I don't even know how to finish that thought. He was an instant friend. He taught me so much about music, and about life. He was a true inspiration, not because he was a great man, but because he was a good man. From extended lunch breaks at the shop to Thanksgiving with Bettie and company, from lending me his canoe (and helping me strap it to my tiny little Ford Escort) to gigs all over the peninsula, so many of my memories from that year revolve around Whitey. I can only hope to measure up to his example of kindness, generosity, honesty, humor, loyalty, and joie de vivre. If I become a tenth of the man Whitey was, I'll have done well. I could go on and on and on. Thanks Whitey. Safe travels, my friend.

I will miss you uncle Tim and my heart goes out to Lizzie. Love, Hairnet.

I was totally shocked to hear about Whitey's passing... I had just spoken to him a couple days before. We talked on the phone for quite a while. Every time we talked, I would learn something new about him. He was always a very friendly guy with such a good attitude. I will really miss that guy! And I'll miss him answering the phone, "Whitey's Happy Music Shoppe!"

what a shock! I've known Whitey for almost 30 years, and was dismayed to find he had passed at such an early age. I first met him when I was a resident of Sterling and he was the night janitor at the school. We later hooked up in Anchorage after he and Theresa had moved to Spenard. He offered me a job, and became my "boss" at Kiva House, a home for developmentally disabled adults where his compassion shone through. He and I spent many days playing music together, and enjoying one another's company. He was one of the kindest people I ever met, and had a great sense of humor. One of my fondest memories is his impressions of a "down-easter" from Maine. He cracked me up every time.
After Theresa's unexpected passing, he moved back to Sterling, and we lost touch, but occasionally spoke by phone. I no longer live in Alaska, but read the online addition of the paper everyday, which is where I learned of his passing.
The world has lost a truly kind and compassionate individual, and I was proud to consider him my friend. Lizzie, the last time I saw you you were about 12 years old in Spenard. Condolences to you and the rest of the family.
