Tim graduated from Aberdeen High School in 1970. He attended Washington State University and transferred to the University of Washington, graduating in 1978 with a BS in Botany. Tim went on to pursue a PhD in Botany at the University of Washington.

Tim specialized in integrated pest management and hazardous materials management. He worked professionally for The Pub, Growing Green Gardens, and The Boeing Company.

Tim was an avid gardener, superb chef, and a voracious reader with a big heart, a keen wit, and insightful wisdom. He volunteered many hours for the 43rd District Democrats, Chicken Soup Brigade, and the Washington Park Arboretum.

He will be sadly missed by his brother and sister-in-law Chris and Barb Savage of Murfreesboro TN, step mother Colleen Savage of Aberdeen WA, and loving friends Ken Kadlec, Michael Fallon, Michael Doucett, Linda Bell, Jeff Kennedy, and Elio Cibrian.

Gregory E. Liptac
Gregory E. Liptac My partner of 15 1\2 years departed this life on Saturday February 17, 2007, at the age of 47.

Greg was survived by his partner John W. Cavanaugh and his only sibling John Liptac and his family.

Greg was an involved member of the Gay community of Seattle for many years. We had many friends in the Seattle area until we had to move back to his birth place in Spokane to be near his family.

He was a strong man and fought a valiant fight against a failing heart. He will forever be with me and everyone in Seattle, as well as those we have lost contact with.

Next time your at CC's or any of the other old hangouts of ours, please raise a glass and toast three times because that was our toast. Ching, ching, ching," we would say. However, do it this time for my dear Greg-go!

A Service will be held at 2 PM on Saturday, February 24, at St. Stephens (5720 S. Perry St., Spokane; 509-448-2255). The service will be followed by a reception at our home (1620 E. 58th Ave., Spokane).
