    All, it is with great sadness that I must inform you all that Tim Olson’s life ended unexpectedly and suddenly this past Monday.  We all have lost a great person, friend, boater, rescuerer.

    Visitation – 2pm

    Service – 3pm

    For those who cannot make the trip the tentative plan is to scatter a portion of his ashes on the St. Francis at a service to be held at a later date.

    We’ll all miss you Tim…

    Thank you Adam… Tim was such a kind hearted guy.  So sorry for the loss of a great friend.

    I’ve only known Tim a few years, we paddled together on the SE trip a few times and a small handful of times on the Saint. Tim was someone you wanted on the river with you – he was smart, cautious and patient. The last time I saw Tim we were on the Ocoee, having paddled the lower Tellico the day before.

    We have sent flowers with a card stating “Friends from the MWA” as we are sure many more of us want to be there tomorrow but cannot.

    He will truly be missed on the Saint.

    Adam – so sorry to hear this shocking news. Tim was s great guy to boat with and hang around with afterward. He was the first one I went to when I bruised my ribs in the SE trip this spring, because I knew he’d have my back if needed.
    Unfortunately, I can’t be there tomorrow but please share my condolences with his family.
