From WGIL radio:
The recent death of a man affiliated with Knox College for nearly four decades is bringing condolences from across the community.
Tim Heimann, who graduated from Knox College in 1970 and went on to have a stellar career as the men’s basketball coach, died at home early Friday morning after a nearly year-long battle with cancer. Heimann’s former coach, assistant on the bench and close friend Harley Knosher is among the many people who are expressing sadness in the wake of Heimann’s passing.
Knosher coached Heimann in basketball at Knox College in the late 1960’s. Heimann would eventually take over for Knosher as the men’s head basketball coach in 1985. Knosher tells WGIL he had a range of emotions when he found out Heimann’s courageous fight was over.
