We have heard that Tim Bulkeley (tim bulkeley) has died. His wife, Barbara, has PM'ed me a little bit about Tim.

Tim's dates were 1948 - 2019. He was an Old Testament lecturer (retired) originally from England, taught in Congo (when it was Zaire in the 1980s), in New Zealand where we came in 1993, and from 2010 onwards we went to the Philippines. Sri Lanka &Thailand to teach also. He really enjoyed reading, making a range of videos and had a wonderful way with words.

May God give rest to his soul!
Peace be with you,

I have added a new paragraph for Tim to the first post (filed in with 2019).

I know it's not a nice topic to talk about or plan for, but it's a good idea to make a list of all your (online) friends you'd like to be informed in case of your death and make sure your family can find it when the time comes...
Cheers, Ava.

Thank you for letting us know Ann. I first heard Tim in The Woman in White, https://librivox.org/the-woman-in-white-by-wilkie-collins/, his voice was perfect for Walter Hartright and his reading on that project was a big reason that I got hooked on LV!

Very sorry to hear this.

Tim was a marvellous reader and produced several great solos, including some notable readings of P. G. Wodehouse.

LV readers should in particular check out the delightful recording of More William by Richmal Crompton, in which Tim and Barbara collaborated.

Rest in peace to all of the volunteers of times gone by. Ray Kasper gave me a lot of laughs with his dramatic recordings of Shakespeare. I’ll try to check out some of the others.

Listening to Beth Thomas makes me feel like I know her and she's still around. If you're missing anyone, listen to their recordings and you'll forget they're away.
2 Timothy 1:7. Look it up.
