On February 6, 2018, a few weeks before his 18th birthday,

Timo’s journey took him beyond this world
So suddenly and sadly for all of us who love him 
Skate on, Timo. Skate with joy
Wherever your journey takes you, near or far
You will always be close to us here in our hearts

Our son and brother Timo took his young life this week after a long struggle with severe anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. A beautiful, fun-loving soul who touched so many people with his empathy, Timo could not overcome incessant, intrusive thoughts, despite the efforts of dedicated neurofeedback, psychiatric and therapy practitioners, and of course lots of love from family, friends and his beloved hound, Stevie. 

Vika, Sasha and I are so grateful for all your thoughts, prayers and heartfelt sympathy.

Please take a moment to share your stories, memories, feelings, photos or films on this site. Help us remember and celebrate wonderful Timo. There is a tribute section below and separate tabs for stories, photos and videos above.  

The funeral service will take place Falls Church Episcopal, 166 E Broad St, Falls Church VA 22046 at 3 pm on Friday, February 16. Reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, please join our family in making a small donation toward the study of these and other afflictions of the brain, in the hope of preventing this tragedy from happening to others.

"Wishing Timo’s spirit can find peace and hoping that Andy, Vika, Sasha and everyone else his life touched can do the same.

."Come On Up To The House" by Tom Waits

Well the moon is broken
And the sky is cracked
Come on up to the house
The only things that you can see
Is all that you lack
Come on up to the house

All your cryin don't do no good
Come on up to the house
Come down off the cross
We can use the wood
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I'm just a passin thru
Come on up to the house

There's no light in the tunnel
No irons in the fire
Come on up to the house
And your singin lead soprano
In a junkman's choir
You gotta come on up to the house

Does life seem nasty, brutish and short
Come on up to the house
The seas are stormy
And you can't find no port
Come on up to the house
There's nothin in the world


There's nothin in the world
that you can do
you gotta come on up to the house
and you been whipped by the forces
that are inside you
come on up to the house
well you're high on top
of your mountain of woe
come on up to the house
well you know you should surrender
but you can't let go
you gotta come on up to the house

"Dear Vika, Andy and Sasha,
I feel devastated for your loss.  I taught Timo in seventh grade.  I want to be at the funeral with you now, but I have strep throat so I will be with you in spirit.  I wish I had the right words to say, but there are none.  You are in my prayers, and the time I knew Timo is in my heart.  May God comfort you in this difficult time."

"Dear Andy, Vika, and Sasha,
I am so sorry for your loss.  I loved teasing Timo about wearing elbow and knee pads to skateboard.  He was always a delight and handled the every-Sunday lecture so kindly.  You and all of his family and friends are in my prayers.  I pray that Timo is now at peace in heaven teaching Jesus and others how to skateboard.
You have my deepest sympathy."

"Dear Timo

We will alway remember your beautiful soul In our  hearts.❣️ You were loved by so many and you will be missed dearly.

Forever in Our Hearts
Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I've only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me
not as I am now, but as I use to be.

Because I will remember you all and look on with a smile,
Understand, in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
Joey Beighley"

"Dear Timo,

I hope you are free where you are
I wish you to have all the spray paint and lots of empty walls
So you can color these walls
The way you colored so many of our lives
With your sweet existence

Know that we will take care of the once that loved you the most


“I moved a stone
In a river on earth
Now I know I will never be forgotten
I gave proof of my existence
Because, by moving that one stone
The current will never flow the same way again”"
