He was born in Amarillo, Texas on January 4, 1953, to the late George and Barbara Curtis.  Tim graduated from Tascosa High School in 1971, and from Texas A&M University in 1975.

Tim married Laurie (Audrey) Haynes in Amarillo on January 8, 1977.   Tim and Laurie resided in Kingwood, Texas.  Tim was the consummate family man who loved spending time with his children, Luke and Juliana.  Most recently, Tim assumed the role of “Papa” to his grandson, Harrison.  Tim was a faithful member of Kleinwood Church of Christ (Houston) for over 30 years.  Tim was an avid fan of Aggie football, the Houston Texans, and the Houston Astros.

Tim is survived by his wife, Laurie, as well as his son, Luke and wife, Kelsy, his daughter, Juliana Wagner and husband, Hunter, and his grandson, Harrison Wagner.  Tim is also survived by his sisters, Shayne McGonagill, Stacey Curtis, and Paige Biggs and her husband, Tony, all of Amarillo.  Additional survivors include his nieces, Maggie Biggs, Janie Biggs and Megan McGonagill, and nephew, Jack Biggs.  He is also survived by his father and mother-in-law, Phil and Norma Haynes, brother-in-law, Phil Haynes, Jr. (Cheryl), and sister-in-law Tricia Bass (Sherman).  Tim also leaves behind other family members and friends who loved him and will miss him dearly.

There was a fair-sized group of us "71'ers" who went to Texas A&M, and though we were not a close group there (it's a BIG campus!), we all share the bond of having graduated in the 99th year of our glorious University and being of its graduating classes, the 95th. We lost the first of our group when Charlie Puckett died in 1997. To my knowledge, Tim is the second.

There is a tradition at A&M called Aggie Muster. Each April 21st, no matter where an Aggie is, if there is at least one Aggie within 100 miles, you are expected to get to get together, eat a little, drink a little, re-live some of the memories of your times at A&M, and then stand at attention as the list of Aggies who have died during the previous year is read. When the name of an Aggie from your class is read, or an Aggie who was a personal friend, it is your duty to answer softly "here,sir" for the Aggie who can no longer answer roll call. If possible, Taps is then played for all the departed and the school song is sung. 

This year,when the names of the Class of '75 are read at the Kansas City Muster, I will answer for Tim.

I expect the same will be done by Dayle Tipton, Kent Parge, Marshall Cutright, and perhaps others at the Amarillo Muster; Buddy Beene at the Dallas Muster, Woody Bruner at the Fort Worth Muster, Jim Holt somewhere in Africa, Jana Farwell Wolfshol (and her husband Karl '75) at College Station, and other Tascosans from the Class of '75 wherever they are.

Aggies don't forget.

So sorry to hear about Tim's passing, and thank you Clarence for your thoughts.  I will answer "here" when Tim's name is called at the A&M campus muster.

If you believe that no one ever reads the things posted on this website, think again. This week I have received a flood of e-mails, text messages, and even phone calls regarding my post above. It has caused me to think hard and delve deeply into the cobweb-covered, dusty corners of my mind, and I need to add something.

There are some other "Rebel Aggies" that I have remembered. I am sure that Tim will be answered for by Linda Linn Shepard at the Albuquerque muster, Mike Bridges at College Station, Alan Higgins in Denver, and Barbara Badgett Austin  in Austin. In addition, Jim Amend (Amarillo High, '71, TAMU '75, DVM) remembers Tim from Rebel-Sandie baseball and will answer for him at San Marcos.

There will probably be others. Aggies always have lots of friends.

Thank you, Clarence. Well said. Tim was definitely one of the good guys.

Tim & I were friends since first grade at Olsen Park. We played on many sports teams over years & knew each other well. Tim married a girl whose family were members of the same church as me. When he passed away In Houston, the decision was made for burial in Amarillo.  Laurie asked if I would speak at his funeral & I said yes. Of course what I thought it might be was a short statement of our many times together, but she confirmed I was to be the only speaker. It was very easy for me to put many things about Tim on paper, but challenging to present them with emotions running high. I still have the words in a word document & if you would like to read them, please email a note to me. Good, bad or indifferent, they reflect what I knew about Tim’s life. Dayle
