December 13, 1957 " September 14, 2014

Timothy Peter Vos, 56, died unexpectedly September 14, 2014.

A native of Salt Lake City, he moved to San Francisco in 1983.

He commented that in SLC he could shock people, in San Francisco he could only mildly amuse them.

He had a passion for life, quick wit, big heart and smile, and killer good looks.

He bought a run down compound of Victorians in 1991, and transformed them into a "Tales of the City" gem. He enjoyed restoring the houses; his real joy was transforming asphalt parking to a garden paradise.

An appraiser for Butterfield's Auction and Clars Auction, he also sold antiques with his partner.

An AIDS survivor for 16 years and sober for five years, he found healing at the Integral Yoga Institute, took teacher training classes and cooked in their kitchen and worked in the garden.

Tim leaves behind his partner of 29 years, Lynn Wilkinson, mother Kate Vos, siblings Rick, Gloria, and JoDee, his best friend Matt, and his beloved Zeus.

The yoga institute held a celebration for his life; his family had a farewell in Salt Lake; and friends gathered to celebrate in his courtyard garden. His ashes have been scattered at Harbin Hot Springs, Red Rock, and the Yuba River.

Fly high, my little man. I love you.
