Knox Official Talks About Short, But Valuable, Relationship with Tim Heimann

From WGIL radio news:

An official at Knox College says she’s probably known Tim Heimann the least amount of time, but he has impacted her life as much as anyone she’s known.

Knox Vice President for Advancement Beverly Holmes was one of those who spoke at Heimann’s memorial service yesterday on the basketball court named in his honor at Knox. Heimann died of cancer March 13th.

Holmes worked with Heimann in his most recent capacity as major gifts officer, and says she couldn’t help but often notice Heimann’s low-tech approach to his job. “He promised to learn to type, and actually check e-mail,” Holmes said while the audience laughed. “And he actually did learn how to reply to a few e-mails by typing.”
