Gary Tims

Sincere condolences are extended to Caroline Tims and all the family on the death of Gary on February 27th.

Gary was the dearly loved husband of Caroline, father of Diane, Peter and Sheryl, grandad of Mark, Lance and Alex, Shaun and Daniel, Tayla and Jordan and great grandad of four.

In Memory of Gary Tims

Gary married local girl, Caroline Hinton, 56 years ago and they have been dairy farming in Eureka (Hinton Road/Morrinsville Road) ever since. Horses and riding were always a huge focus of their lives, from hunting, competing on the Show circuit, to Gary being a successful amateur jockey (winning the Duke of Gloucester Cup) and then becoming an acknowledged owner-trainer.

Son, Peter, who went on to forge a very successful career as a jockey, actually had his first win on one of his dad's horses, Bright Star. Today, Gary and Caroline's grandchildren are all carrying on the riding and racing family tradition.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with you in your sad loss.
