I just heard of Tim's passing and wanted to send my heartfelt condolences to his wife, Gayla, and his entire family. I knew Tim from UPS and worked with him on several projects through the years. He had a deep love of Aviation and was a great source of information and knowledge to those who worked with and around him. He will be sorely missed.

Tim was an awesome man! I just became the MD11 LIne Maintenance Planner in March and although I knew of him before I never had the privilege of working with him. Pre-Covid for the short time I worked with him in AGB he introduced himself and he was so funny, intelligent and interesting to talk to! I enjoyed our conversations very much. After we all went home, after every Tech Review he would call me to go over my briefing and we would discuss life in general. He truly loved his family, his job, aviation, and life in general. This world lost a great man, but Heaven gained an angel. Love and prayers to his family.

Gayla, as you know I cannot attend Tim's service. We were talking about success in life a few weeks ago. How we measured it. Tim was one of the most successful people I have ever known. He had married the love of his life. Had children that he really was proud of and like many parents didn't always express it well. A love of aircraft and machines in general. The respect of those in his work place and profession. He always impressed me with his loyalty and drive. I was honored to have him as a friend. With love and respect.Don McCoy

What a beautiful wonderful man. Passionate about his love of aviation that at times, he would loose focus on other things. One time he invited me to attend the Indy 500 with him and Gayla. As a "gear head", a bucket list time not to be passed. Well, we had to run back to his house in Mt. Washington to get some items (Tim was driving). Well, Tim is 100% we are going to be late for the race because of this. I was equally adamant that we wouldn't. (Taking into account the 1 hour difference of Indy to Louisville). We got into a rather heated debate and he started spouting Zulu time blah blah blah. I just clamed up. Well, he's speeding and I know where the Indy State trooper would be hiding. Yep, 82 in a 55. Well we arrive in Indy just when the B-2 is doing a fly by. We meet up with Gayla and he remarks, "Gosh, we're not late after all!". I cut loose that yep, and I knew the cop would be there but you pissed me off so much, I let you get the ticket. Tim laughed. That to me is the quintessential Tim O'Connor. I was blessed to have him for a friend.

Very saddened to hear about Tim. I worked with Tim in the Technical Support Group for several years. The time gave me the opportunity to learn about talents and skills Tim had that I might not have known about had we not worked in the same group for sometime. Because we did I have made routine occasional efforts to follow his history making projects progress of making not one but two accurate aircraft reproductions. I have enjoyed checking out his meticulously documented progress on his P-26 website since then. Only seeing Tim on rare occasions on visits to the AGB since working in Tech Support the news about his passing is unexpected and we are very sad for his family. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

To The Family...I was sadden to hear about your loss. We just spoke of a prank we pulled on Tim. He had such great sense of humor. His love of life, his knowledge and his wit will surely we missed.

I really enjoyed working with Tim at UPS. I was also in his classes for Embry Riddle and he had so much knowledge that he loved to share. He will be sorely missed.
Jim Thelle left a message on October 28, 2020:
I have a lot of great memories of Tim and his stories about aviation history and the significance of the O'Connor clans in Ireland. Tim was a fellow teacher at Embry-Riddle and covered classes for me when I had to travel out of town for work. Instead of covering the material, Tim took the students to look at his airplanes and "talk shop" which provided much more entertainment and value 4 hours of lecture. Tim was a good guy and a great technical resource for the airlines that he worked for. His sense of humor and decency as a person will be missed. Rest in Peace Tim.
