  7. Tim was someone whom both Lizzie and I liked and respected enormously. Although he was passionate about some issues and expressed his views strongly at times, and took action to follow those views up, despite this he came across as a someone who was able to, and enjoyed, listening and discussing with others. His was the wisdom of practical experience, of having tried things and of sometimes making mistakes along the way, which is the best source of learning. Deeply community-minded, he was a sensitive and sound Chairman of the Parish Council, who listened to others first and then took decisions and action. We will miss him, and his warm sense of humour, enormously, and our heartfelt thoughts are with Maria, Jack and Julia.

  12. Dear Maria and family
    I have known Tim for more than 30 years and I have had the pleasure to work closely with him in startup companies since 2003. Tim has been recognised and respected as a successful geoscientist and acted as a guide and mentor for colleagues and business associates, me included. I have always admired Tim for his analytical approach to all kind of challenges, his ability to listen to others and, based on his own opinion and input from others, produce good solutions. I have learned a lot from him, and it’s difficult for me to understand that he has passed away after a tragic accident. We will all miss Tim, and we send our deepest sympathy to Maria and family.

  13. We feel extremely privileged to have known Tim. His warmth, his kindness and sense of humour are the memories we will keep of all the happy times we spent together. A true gentleman. We will miss him.
    Lots of love

    Poppy & Alan Malone
  14. It was a privilege to have known Tim and we will miss him enormously, especially his dry wit and humorous comments at our Fiddleford pub dinners. A kind and very generous man, his premature passing when he should still have had so many good years ahead of him is so sad and so tragic for Maria and family. Rest in peace Tim.

  16. I am so sorry I can’t be there to celebrate Tim’s fantastic life as I am overseas. Tim was one of my first bosses at Enterprise in the late 80’s and he was always a great motivator and mentor, even many years later after we stopped working together. He was not only a great geologist but a great human being. All my sincere condolences to Maria and the family.

    John Austin

  18. My most sincere condolences to Tim’s family and dearest friends. Beyond being a great finder of oil and shrewd business man, for the 20 years of knowing him I always found Tim the most approachable of guys despite his status and generous with his wise counsel.

  19. Dear Mike,
    Sending the deepest condolences for your loss, on behalf of the entire Anomaly team.
    Our thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.

    Zaida & team
  20. Dear Maria, my husband and I watched Pointless this evening and remarked how nice some people are after hearing your wish to give any money you won to charity (after having a nice meal out 😀) and your hosting Ukrainian refugees. Unfortunately the topics you had to choose from were horrendous but you had a good go at it! When they showed that Tim had passed away I was shocked and saddened. I found this site on Google so I hope you don’t mind but I would just like to pass on my sympathies to you and your family.

  21. I’ve just heard the deeply saddening and shocking news about Tim. We worked together at both Getty and Enterprise Oil. Tim was my friend, colleague and mentor and taught me a great deal. He was an excellent and highly-respected geologist, kind human being and will be sorely missed by all.

  22. I have very belatedly learned of Tim’s very sad passing. He was my boss at Getty, Saxon and Enterprise during the 80s and I always enjoyed his company and his laid back style. It was always a pleasure to bump into him at conferences and other events. I will remember him as top bloke who also happened to be an excellent and innovative geologist. RIP, Tim.

    Andrew Hopkins
