Tim died Dec. 9, 2014, after a long illness.

He entered Princeton from Bethlehem (Pa.) Catholic High School, where he was a state wrestling champion. At Princeton, he won Cane Spree wrestling and was an outstanding hooker on the rugby team. After taking medical leave midway through junior year, Tim graduated with the Class of ’74 as a history major.

After graduation, Tim taught history and was the varsity wrestling coach at Parkland High School in Allentown, Pa. He then earned a master of fine arts degree from the New School in New York City and taught film and animation at Jersey City State College, NYU, and Passaic County Community College.

Tim also was an independent and freelance animator and filmmaker, as well as a talented blues guitarist and harmonica player. His bands included Swampedelica and Better Off Dead, and his gigs included our 30th reunion. He was also a longstanding member of the Bethlehem Hooligans Rugby Club and the New York Rugby Club.

Most importantly, Tim was a beloved friend. We all enjoyed his multi-dimensional talents, intelligence, creativity, wit, easygoing personality, and positive attitude. The class offers its condolences to Tim’s mother, Helen; his brother, Robert; the extended family, and his many friends.
