Ty let me know that Tim Dever, a very early member of the HH community and moderator at one point, passed away last night due to the coronavirus. He had been fighting major health problems most of his life, and was in the high-risk category.

I had lost touch with Tim in the past several years, but he was an active member here in the early years.

I'll leave it up to Ty to reply with more information if he deems it appropriate.

R.I.P. Tim. :(

We lost one of our long time members last night. I'm almost positive anybody and everybody who has traded CDs on this website has traded with him or got to know him in some way. Tim fought long and hard for most of his life dealing with different medical issues including kidney transplants as well as liver and pancreas, and other things. Through all of that he still remained a kind and passionate guy and would do anything for anyone. 

He finally was getting everything put together and got transplants that worked so he could have a normal life a couple years ago. He even got married last year to someone he met from his church. Couple of weeks ago he got admitted into the hospital for some infection in his leg called cellulitis. That infection started messing with everything else going on including screwing with his pancreas and liver. Somewhere in the midst of all of that he contracted the coronavirus in the hospital. After a couple of days on a ventilator and life support, his family was told they needed to turn it off last night because of his conditions. He peacefully passed away last night.

His mom has started a GoFundMe page to help his family and with some other things.

I do remember Tim from way back at the start but not sure our activeness on the forum overlapped. I think his user name was just Tim, wasn't it, thus later forcing the second Tim to be Tim (2)?

Anyway, that's a sad story and may he rest in peace.

Tim was one of the first folks at HH I did any trading of physical CDs with, and early on, when I was first getting into seeking out and/or hearing those elusive rarities, he was someone who didn't mind sharing a few MP3s so I could decide if I wanted to pursue a disc or not. 

His comments from back around 2002-2003 are all over the main site; he was very knowledgeable about all the mainstream bands, as well as the indie bands that few had ever heard of at that time. 

Just an all round nice guy; such a shame that after overcoming so many things in his life, this damn virus is what takes him from this world. -_-

 

R.I.P. Tim

For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.

    • Debut is great! Hopefully the singer is good.
    • I agree the US is weathering the storm but you don't have much choice since many states have virus numbers that are surging due to social gatherings ... you've got to admit that if things had been handled better and there was leadership from the top instead of denial , the country would be much better off.... As for destroying statues...that shit pisses me off...there is no advantage in trying to erase history and the rioting and other destruction is outrageous and should have been dealt with harshly especially that bullshit in Seattle where people were allowed to take over several city blocks....and I would be willing to bet a small fortune that the people who vandalized the Frederick Douglass statue were of a 'pale persuasion' ...the only surprise is that it took them this long to do it...probably because they had a hard time finding a statue of a black man...

    • Looking forward to this one - really enjoyed the debut

    • Stirring the pot, eh? Candidly, despite Trump being somewhat non-existent on the leadership front when it comes to COVID-19, the country is actually weathering the storm. Yes, there are spikes in cases due to, *ahem* "social gatherings", but the scenario for these cases is vastly different from the onset. We are testing at a much greater rate now, the majority of cases appear to be asymptomatic, and death rates continue to decline. Businesses are (slowly) reopening, and people are getting to work. This was never going to be a "flip the switch and everything is back to normal" situation. It's going to take time. The bigger concern to me are the Antifa and BLM terrorists destroying the country and its history, while local and regional authorities stand by and let them do it. It's criminal... on both the part of the thugs, and the bureaucrats. When peaceful protest turned into destruction of public and private property, and danger to innocent civilians, that shit should have been nipped in the bud, but authorities were too concerned about how they would be perceived on Twitter, and now everyone's trying to figure out how to get shit back into the horse. Not to mention that these people are fucking stupid. Over the weekend they tore down the statue of Frederick Douglass... a black abolitionist who worked to end slavery. It just boggles the mind.
