Friends and family are invited to meet, March 12, at Kirby's for a memorial wake for Tim Pouncey, AKA Casher O'Neill. The event will be from 4pm to 7pm. He had made a lot of friends here in
Wichita as well as many from around the
world, online. Tim was known by his pen name Casher O'Neill to a lot of his
online friends. He has made good friends from as far away as England and Australia.
Tim often worked with me on many of my writing projects. We met while I was still publishing the Public Voice. He helped me with my books writing projects and he wrote a review for one of them. In
he worked at such newspapers as The
Times-Sentinel, of Cheney, and their various newspaper chains;
the Andover Journal Advocate and
for The Pratt Tribune. And while
he was at the many newspapers he worked at, his columns were read
through-out Kansas and
enjoyed by many. A lot of his old fans knew him from his days at the Wichita State University's The Sunflower. He was a
columnist there for a few years and that is where he wrote some of his best
stuff. That's not to say his later stuff wasn't good. He could always write a
good column, especially if humor was needed.
This is one last time to meet with other fans, family and friends to discuss Tim and his past career.
