Assistant Dean Bob Bailey said, "Tim and I were colleagues and best friends for nearly 25 years. We literaly saw each other everyday. We vacationed together, went on trips together. In this rafting photo, this is the second time he's falling out of the raft in the white water, and nearly drowned."

Bailey continued, "We went on conferences together. This is when I was being inducted into the Law Society and Tim is presenting me with the Law Society Medallion. I was with Tim as much as I was with any other person other than my wife. So we were very very close. The race is important because the students are the ones that came up with the idea."

Another law student, Andrew Norton, added, "He loved running, so I think the race is a nice tribute to him and his love of running. It's a way to honor the life of someone who gave so much during his life to his community and this law school."

Bailey recalled, "Tim had a lot of devil in him. He loved to play practical jokes. I would bring fruit into my office and leave it on my desk. I'd come back at some point during the day and there'd be a bite out of my apple or a bite out of my bananna, and I always knew that Tim had been in my office."

Finally, Bailey remembered his former colleague, "I enjoyed how he would always wear a bowtie. It's unusual these days, but I thought it was very classy and it put a smile on my face everyday when I saw him walking down the hall with a bowtie. Tim had a terrific sense of humor, enjoyed life immensely, and was just fun to be around."

The Tim Heinsz Memorial 5 Kilometer Run-Walk starts at 9:00 a.m. this Saturday, April 22, outside Hulston Hall. The event is open to anyone, including their dogs. Participants will receive t-shirts and refreshments after the run-walk. The top finishers will get awards. The $20 entry fees will go to the Timothy J. Heinsz Memorial Fund.
