Tim Quinn lived with my family for several years. I was 7-9 years old. He taught me to draw Mickey Mouse. He showed me how important it was to write letters by hand and not on the computer. I still wrote him letter on the computer …. at least you can read the handwritting! Here we are 30 years later and I am blessed for having Tim in my life. We were still pen pals to date!
I will miss you Tim!!!

I met Tim when he first moved to Sequim. We became good friends and always stayed in touch. It saddens me that it took so long for me to hear about his passing. The last time I saw him was after he carved the drawings in the bluff in 93, which he had included a carving of my face in it. I’ll miss him dearly and may he rest in peace.
