Tim’s friends have posted tributes on his Facebook Page.

Shauna Jensen said, “what a bass player. No one could play as funky as Tim”.
John Capek wrote, “an Aussie bass playing legend – gone too soon. Hard to believe. We played a lot of gigs. Bled fingers. Loved the same funk. Recently reconnected. Tim taught me everything I know about the bass”.
Roger McLachlan said, Just heard the devastating news that has passed away. I first met Tim in the 70s when he was playing with Kevin Borich. Man what an inspiration that guy was on bass￼. I got to hang out with Tim around that time and he inspired me to go for it and be fearless on the Bass. He came back into my life over the past year via messenger which was great here’s a little video he sent me.”
