Raised by 98 people in 6 months
Tim ‘DORFUS’ McDougall passed away suddenly and tragically on Saturday, 23rd December 2017, in his home town of Adelaide. Tim was just 39 years old.

Tim left behind his beloved twin children, Emma and Murray, in the sole care of their mother Evette, who left her home in the USA to make a life in Adelaide with Tim and their kids.

In a tragic twist of fate, Tim’s mother and the twins’ grandmother, Lorraine, lost her battle with cancer on Friday 19th January, less than one month after Tim’s passing.

The aim of this memorial fund is to ease the financial burden that comes with losing a father so suddenly, before their time. Raising two young children on a single income with a limited support network is always going to be a struggle.

All the proceeds of this fund will go directly to Evette to help her to take care of the twins and perhaps establish a small nest egg for them for their future. They are only 9 years old and have so much life ahead of them.

I met Tim in Adelaide through a shared love of skateboarding and punk shows in the early 90's and we became better mates travelling and skateboarding through Oregon, Colorado, Washington and British Colombia in 2001. Tim was one of the best skateboarders in the world, yet remained humble and true to his aussie roots. He blew my mind everytime he stepped on a skateboard. Effortless and stylish raw agression. I later saw him evolve into a loving father who would do anything for his kids.

Tim was always giving to others, whether it was sharing his unmistakable laugh, a cold Coopers, a snag off the barby, building skateparks or giving a skateboard to someone who needed it.

Let’s honour Tim’s memory, and let Emma and Murray know how many people he touched around the world.
