The following obituary was provided by Timothy's brother, David (SH 48-52)

Died on 28 July 2018, aged 80. Brother to David (SH 48 - 52). Born in Sevenoaks, he left Tonbridge early when the family moved away, later graduating in Agricultural Science at Reading University. He then taught science at Harlow College and worked as a geneticist in a poultry business.  In 1965 with his first wife and three children he emigrated to Australia where he was to spend the rest of his life. Continuing his involvement with poultry, in a number of locations and managerial positions, he finished his career as CEO of the New South Wales Chicken Growers Association. In 1975 he remarried, finally moving to Bowral SW of Sydney, a town closely associated with the famed cricketer Don Bradman. His principal recreations were property renovation (doing much of the work himself) and foreign travel in Asia and Europe, allegedly visiting 26 countries, many more than once. In later life he was plagued with a number of illness involving spells in hospital from a variety of causes, finally dying of smoking related cancer.  As well as his wife, three children and three stepchildren, he leaves behind seven grandchildren, one step grandchild and four great-grandchildren.

(SH 51 - 53)
