I am saddened to hear of your death today. I only found out by posting Happy Birthday on your facebook page. I was so shocked to hear from fellow friends of your passing. The last time we spoke it was back in July 2010 and you were telling me of all your adventures and all that you had achieved since ANZ days and what you were about to achieve. So much has happened in your life since the good old ANZ days (2004) when we worked together. I just wished you got to see out all those dreams you were planning. I know your in a better place now and I wish your family much respect and peace, and they should be proud to have brought such kind and cool person into this world. Rest In Peace Tim
I am deeply saddened by the news...sadder because I didn't know for a year... I am sorry I have not been able to keep in touch...it has indeed been a very long time since I visited Melbourne. I think it was 2002 when we last played tennis on one of the clay courts in RSY. I still remember the score...I took the first set 7/6 and you won the next 6/3, we stopped because I promised to play with Andrew as well...we then started playing with thee people. I had never seen a forehand so powerful and serves so fast. I was just so happy to play in the same penant team... I still remember the time when we played doubles together and when my volleys were completely off and whenever I hit a volley, my shots would go out. You were so frustrated and told me that you'll hit all the volleys for me and you'd dive into shots that is almost impossible to cover by one person on a doubles court. You were always my hero... There was also a time when you came to the tennis practice with your hair jelled in toothpaste. I didn't admit to you, but it looked so cool that I tried it myself at home. You always tried new things, you were always ahead of the pack. You were a true leader. I will miss you. I will make you proud... Yhatz
Dear Tim, I miss you. Thank you for teaching me poker odds and pot odds. Thank you for teaching me how to make a Red Corvette cocktail. Thank you for taking me to that house inspection and pretending we were actual buyers (so smooth dude). Thank you for being a non-judgmental, fun and informative friend. I was always happy to see you and I will always be happy to remember you. Peace and love always, Androme &>-----<--------
Tim, you were a legend and always will be.
You were a legend and always will be.
Dear Family and Friends of Timothy Ian Head, To Tim's family I wish sincere condolences. I can only imagine the grief the passing of child must bring. I hope that in the pain of loss you can find a measure of comfort in knowing that your son and brother was one of the best of us. I would like to share with you some of the joy Tim has brought to my life and I would like to speak of my enduring friendship with Tim. As I read Tim's online memorial for the first time, I hoped it was a cruel joke. Sitting in shock I refused to believe Tim's passing was true. A deep sadness soon set in as I contemplated the loss of someone so close and dear to me. I loved Tim like a brother and in some ways like a son. I will always remember him falling asleep on my couch or at my computer and if I could go back I would keep him there safe within my reach. I will always treasure the memories of Tim's caring and considerate soul. Although sometimes misunderstood, Tim was the epitome of gentlemanly grace. Undoubtedly loved by many I feel genuinely honored to have been friends with Tim. I remember the first time I met Tim was at a Computer Game LAN Party with friends. I was initially taken back by Tim's frankness with me (someone twice his size) as he fearlessly and sarcastically humbled me over my over-zealous boasting. I had to do a double take! I thought he was arrogant and aloof, but his friend Chris assured me Tim was a great person. It wasn't long before Tim and I became good friends. As the years passed and Tim became more of a constant in my life, the more I saw a caring side of Tim that warmed me to my heart. Tim was intelligent and handsome to a threat. His love of sport and games shone in his competitive nature. Cricket with Tim was always entertaining. He was his own biggest critic and the animation he would show at losing if he felt he hadn't done his best, while rare, was well worth bowling him out! Tim was generous with the people he cared about. His loyalty and honor was never in question. I could sleep soundly knowing that Tim was spending the night or leaving at odd hours to work night shifts. Not once did Tim's presence seem anything but a gift. Just knowing Tim and having him as a friend has brightened my life. I really did love him like he was one of my own. I cried at the thought of explaining Tim's passing to my son Ben. Although only 9, Ben and Heady (as we affectionately called Tim), shared more than you would expect. Many hours spent online together playing World of Warcraft created a bond that I know will not be forgotten. It seems trivial to mention an online game but it shows the breadth of Tim's influence with my family. Children can see into the heart of us and my son warmed instantly to Tim's kindness and gentility. I know Tim will be sorely missed and that is without a doubt. But what always struck me about Tim was his eagerness to enjoy life. While so many of us are stuck in our shells, Tim embraced life head on. Tim's sojourn into the world this last year demonstrated his lust for life and although I would love to keep him safely with us, I know in my heart it would be wrong to not let him fly free. Tim my dear friend, you burnt briefly but bright and the light you filled our lives with will always be loved and remembered. May you live forever in our hearts and minds. Love Always, The Korare Family.
My fondest memories are the times we spent together, alone. You offered me a quiet place of peace and refuge. Your unconventional, unique outlook on life was extraordinary and refreshing. You gave me a place to just be, where I didn't have to be anyone or anything. This was a great gift and a source of great comfort. I can't thank you enough. You were a truly beautiful, sensitive, loving friend. May you now rest in peace. Love always, Alysia
I can remember playing tennis against a very talented Tim Head. It was the quarter finals of Club Champs and RSY in early 90's and my dad was courtside watchng. Tim was 20 and I was 40. I won in three sets. My dad said to me after the match that it was some of the best tennis he had seen me play. This included all the years that I played professionally. Tim had the biggest serve I think i have ever encountered. He also had a massive forehand. very tanlented, Lovely boy and great family
