In Memory Of


Goose Season of 1999/2000
Ted Adderley, Tim Grounds, Alex Albert and Erick Albert

 
Lest we forget, Folks
Memorial to Ted Adderley
Letter from Erick Albert

This photograph was the last time we hunted in Southern Illinois with Tim Grounds. Ted Adderley was my son Alex Albert's roommate in college. They were very close friends and my wife and I are very close with his parents. This has been a terrible tragedy for the Adderley's and we deeply feel it as well. He was a terrific young man with a great future.

Ted was working for a private investment firm on the 93rd floor of the World Trade Center when the first plane hit ... all the people in his office are listed as missing including the president of the company.

Ted and Alex had been enjoying a wonderful time exploring New York during the late summer until September 11, 2001. They were the same age, 22 yrs. and just starting out. What a heartsick waste.

Thank you for remembering.
Erick Albert





Gary Dawes


Terry Allen & Gary Dawes, 2006

Garry Dawes & Terry Allen

Our sincere condolences to the family of Garry Dawes. Garry loved to hunt and was an old, dear friend of Tim's that hunted at the club whenever his health would permit. He was the life of the party when he was out there and all the hunters loved him. Sunday, Dec. 30, 2007, Garry was in the pit at Tim's club, he reached for his gun when the birds came in, and we are not sure of how or why his gun discharged, but he accidentally shot himself. No one else was injured. Although there were four other hunters in the same pit, because they were all on their feet, no one actually saw the incident. Tim was not at the club that morning. He stayed home to go to church with his new wife. Hunter was in a different pit. Garry was 54 yr. of age. Please, keep the Dawes family in your prayers.



 
Terry Allen and Garry hunted together at Tim's club every day they could. We buried Terry on Nov. 17, 2007 and we buried Garry Jan. 3, 2008. These two men will be missed by Tim and by all of us. Just good honest people that loved to be in the goose pit. It is a sad way to end 2007!!

Both were so special and will certainly be missed.
