One of Timothy's favorite times of the year was carnival where he spent time with his friends and had fun. Timothy was a fisherman ever since a young age and died of one. Timothy was raised by Hannah Grubs, because Timothy was an orphan. Timothy thought that if things are going bad there would always be a positive side to it and he would stick to it. Timothy was a wise, and caring man, and will aways be remembered for his act of courage.
