Tim was one of a handful of performers that I truly admired, both as an artist and as a person. He was a brilliant creator of Mentalism, a wonderfully successful performer and a very decent man.

The world is a smaller, dimmer place without him.

I did not know Tim, but my prayers go out for the blessed peace of his soul and for the solace of his family and friends.

Tim was a good fellow, an accomplished magician, and an excellent mentalist. He was always working on new ideas and had great enthusiasm for the craft. He was a wonderful colleague, a good friend, and his passing is a great loss to the mystery community.

Tim was a good friend and was in Israel many years ago to advice me for my first TV show.
The best 12 days of mentalism from 9am to 9pm everyday and we built 14 shows

I will miss Tim.

So very sad. I watched the clip that was posted earlier. He showed such energy, talent and charisma. We are all a little poorer for his passing.

I did not know Mr. Conover but, judging by the video clip, he clearly earned his money by displaying a lot of energy and presenting mentalism in a fun and entertaining way.

This is clearly a great loss to the world of mentalism.

It's clear so many people loved him. I never met him, but this is sad enough to make anyone cry. I admired him for his enthusiasm and energetic performance. Loving condolences to his family and to his many, many friends.

It is very sad - he was clearly a well respected and kind man. Suicide... depression is a horrific thing.

I am friends with his sister. He came and did a personal show for my family. Heard about it from her husband today. He was an amazing performer. It's sad he had to die this way.

How terribly sad. I remember Tim's performance at one of the Invocationals. While I had seen him perform before, the people that booked him at Invo were not familiar with his lightning fast pace, so he performed early on the mentalist matinee program, and almost could not be followed. He was one of the best I've ever seen. Some mentalists are creators, some are performers. Tim was both. He was brilliant at devising impossible to penetrate methods. And a nice guy. How terribly sad. . .

I love his crystal ball routine and that's why I posted it in connection to the story which you can find here:

I've received word from his family and we'll have more info on funeral arrangements as soon as they are completed.

So, so sad and a tragic loss to everyone. I was hoping to one day learn his Newspaper prediction effect, but unfortunately, he took the secret to the grave with him. My sincerest condolences to his entire family because I bet he was a terrific family man. We'll miss ya Tim. You won't be forgotten!
