Tom Timlin, BSc/86, is ensuring that his contribution to Carleton’s football team lasts forever.

Timlin, wore #37 for the Ravens from 1981 to 1985, the only number to be retired in school history.

“When you take the Raven’s Creed, you’re committed for life,” said Timlin.

Now, along with his wife Marie, BSc/87, they have left Carleton a bequest through their will—a gift that honours Tom’s decorated student career in athletics, his involvement in bringing football back to the university and his devotion to the continued success of the Carleton Ravens football program.
