The Optimists Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Corps: Toronto Optimists, Seneca Optimists
Tim came from Grimsby and had marched in the Burlington Teen Tour Band where he played tuba. He joined the Optimists in 1973 and played Contra in '73, '74 and '75. In 1976 he moved to baritone. I cannot remember whether he marched in '77. He later worked with the Oakies in the '80s. I know that he died in the early '90s. Tim's brother Sean played snare and joined the corps in '75. His father Jack was involved in the management of the corps. He was a real drum corps enthusiast and loved Senior Corps like the Caballeros and Skyliners. (Richard Bruton)
