A Turtle’s Tribute:
Tim was born in Dodge City, Kansas, on January 16, 1949.
He received his bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University and his master’s degree and doctorate from the University of Tulsa. Tim was a member of the Texas State Bar and the Oklahoma Bar Associations.
Tim practiced law in the Dallas area for 15 years and specialized in corporate law. He was an assistant professor of business law at the University of North Texas from 1981 to 1987. In addition, Tim was teaching business courses at the Professional Development Institute in Dallas at the time of his death. He was a former member of the Board of Directors for both the Turtle Creek Chorale from 1982 through 1985 and Oak Lawn Community Services.
Tim, who was 6’4″ with bright silver hair, had a very dry sense of humor, played piano, and had a remarkably sweet nature for such a big guy. One of his special attributes was just being there.
Tim passed away October, 16, 1995 in Dallas. He is survived by two sons, John Benjamin Ihloff and William Howard Ihloff; and by several grandchildren, including: Alexandra Marilyn Ihloff, Gabriel Timothy Ihloff, Evan Gregory Ihloff, Forest Dean Ihloff and William Colin Ihloff.
From Karen Estes:
Tim was attorney of record for the Foundation for Human Understanding, Inc., now known as Resource Center of Dallas, until his death. I had the honor of his counsel and of eating many a fun lunch with him, Sherri, John Thomas and William Waybourn in the late 80’s.
