|I was driving home today, a Neil Young song came across the radio waves and I instantly thought about Mike. Checked into the site and saw the sad news about Tim.
Daly family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
I'll sit here for a spell and listen to Mike and think of Mike and Tim and the Daly family. Hoping and praying for peace and serenity for all of you.

|Hi Mike - By now Tim is with you - may you both rest in peace. Following is the posting about Tim that was in the newspaper in Louisville, Los Alamitos and Sacramento. We love you. Di
July 29, 1948 - December 16, 2011
Tim Daly - teacher and principal, educator extraordinaire - died on Friday at home in Louisville, Kentucky, after waging a courageous but losing battle with lung cancer. He was 63. He is predeceased by his father William Daly who passed away in 2003, and his brother Michael Daly who died in 2006.
Tim was born in South Bend, Indiana, spent his youth in California, and after graduating from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana in 1969, joined the teacher corps and spent the rest of his life in the South, teaching elementary school first in Virginia and Alabama in some of the neediest areas of the state, before attending grad school at the University of Kentucky and then making Louisville his permanent home. He taught first grade at the Dann C. Byck Elementary School for ten years, then became Principal at Dixie Elementary for ten years, and finally was Principal of Emmet Field Elementary for another ten years before retiring in 2004. He adored being a principal and loved being able to make a difference in students' and teachers' lives.
But the most important parts of Tim's life were his children Noah and "Yelle" (Gabrielle). He was so proud of every single thing they ever did, and he took extreme delight in the acts of simply being a father. Among his favorite things to do was taking them to school and picking them up each day eager to find out what the day had brought into their lives. He loved to watch Yelle play sports of any kind, and loved to watch Noah play the cello. He loved being a father more than anything in the world.
He is survived by his children, his mother, and his five sisters and brothers:
- Noah Daly, his son (Louisville)
- Yelle Daly, his daughter (Louisville)
- Marty Daly, his mother (Los Alamitos, California)
- Diane McGarry, sister (Fripp Island, South Carolina)
- Mo Daly, sister (Lotus, California)
- Tom Daly, brother (Partner Billie McClendon) (Idyllwild, California)
- Patti Daly Franklin, sister (Los Alamitos, California)
- David Daly, brother (Kristine Collins) (Elk Grove, California)
He is also survived by his sister-in-law Roberta Ramelli Daly (widow of brother Mike) and his six nieces and nephews: Annette, Rachel, Zoe, Tyler, William and Julia.
Tim always felt that education, of any kind, was the single biggest contributor to making your life as interesting as it can be. Reading books or newspapers, having family and friend debates about any topics, spending time with his kids, exploring life inside and outside of Louisville - all of these were learning experiences that enriched his life.
The family would like to thank Tim's huge "family of close friends" who were so generous with their time and love for Tim, and the wonderful team at Hosparus,
￼especially Susan and Corel who made Tim's last days comfortable and pain-free. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Hosparus of Louisville.
To Tim's family and friends, please join us in a celebration of his life at his home on Sunday December 18th at 3:00pm.

|There are no words.
Some of my most precious memories are of Mike playing at the Red Lion, with Velma and I at the table in front, writing, sipping out cider, and having a ball. Mike was one of the kindest, gentlest, sweetest people I have ever met. His music was amazing.

|I just came across this site today. Some twenty years or so ago, I used to attend Mike's shows in the Village, at The Red Lion, and Nightingale's, and I occasionally helped him out by mailing postcards for his gigs. He was sweet, and lovely, and made the world a better place with his songs and his existence. My heart goes out to his family and friends -- those of us who knew him won't forget him.
