Condolence From: Aaron Fulwider
Condolence: Ever since I was a teenager and young waterfowl hunter, Tim Grounds was somebody I looked up to as a legend. I have always loved watching and listening to him call on videos and YouTube. I have bought his calls and learned how to us them with deadly results. I am devastated by this news. My hopes and prayers go out to the Grounds Family and Friends. So sorry for your loss. The world of Waterfowling will never be the same.

Condolence From: John R. "Honker" Hendricks
Condolence: Words cannot adequately express the sadness I feel with the passing of my "SPECIAL" Friend Tim Grounds.
Tim Grounds was truly a "Good Man" who loved God, his Family, and his many Friend's.
Tim was the "BEST" at what he did, calling Canada Geese, "HONKERS".
After many year's of practice, Tim perfected, and mastered the "ART" of calling Canada Geese. He welcomed the opportunity to teach countless other's who endeavored to successfully call Canada Geese.
Tim was revered and a highly respected Friend, and Mentor to anyone who wanted to learn the "ART" of calling Canada Geese, in the Field, or Contest Calling, on the stage.
Tim especially enjoyed meeting and teaching Youngster's how to successfully call Duck's and Geese. Tim was a "ROLE MODEL" to both young and older Duck & Goose hunter's alike.
There was only "ONE" Tim Grounds and his Legacy will live forever.
First and foremost in Tim's life was his Family. Tim loved his Mother Juda, his Father Bill, and his Son Hunter, and he was extremely Proud of them.
Those of us who were blessed and fortunate to know Tim and to call him our Friend will always treasure the Wonderful Memories of the times we spent together with Tim.
God Bless you my Friend Tim Grounds, and may you Rest In Peace.

Respectfully,

John R."HONKER" Hendricks

Condolence From: RANDALL DAWES
Condolence: Tim will be missed by many. Got to know him first when he was good friends with my brother-in-law Mike Crabtree and later on when he was good friends with my brother Garry "Sanford" Dawes. He was a great help when Garry was so quickly taken from us. RIP TIM

Condolence From: Bob Ricker
Condolence: Tim is a friend from the the old days. I guided at Grassy Lake. We became friends outside of the goose world. Great friend. The first time I met Hunter was a classic. He came home from School and asked me me if I was coming to his football game. I said, I can't buddy. He said, all your gonna see is end around Hunter Grounds Touchdown. Smiling forever!!!!!

Condolence From: Sean Mann
Condolence: Tim was one of a kind.

I don't think I ever met anyone as competitive on one hand, yet so generous on the other. That showed you what his heart was all about. Tim was all in-all the time!

We will never have another like him.

Our thoughts and prayers are for the Grounds family during this difficult time.

God Bless you all.

Sean, Sue, Will and Ian Mann

Condolence From: Williams Family
Condolence: Our family would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Tim Grounds. Words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, and death is truly a painful enemy to the human family. Please take comfort in 2 scriptures found in God’s Word the Bible. John 5:28,29 speaks of the resurrection, and Revelation 21:3,4 promises the time in the future when death and mourning will be no more. Our prayers are with you.
