Sadie Hawkins dance. Tim and Ginger quickly became a couple and married on Dec. 23, 1978, the sixth anniversary of their first kiss. After graduating from UK, Tim and Ginger moved to Ithaca, New York, where Tim was offered a full scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in civil engineering at Cornell University. After earning his master of  engineering in civil engineering in 1980, Tim spent six years as a structural engineer in the offshore construction industry in New Orleans, Louisiana, London, England, Houston, Texas and Singapore. Tim and Ginger later returned to Murray, where Tim earned tenure as an associate professor at Murray State University after completing his Ph.D. in civil engineering at Purdue University. During these early years, Tim and Ginger started their family with the birth of Madeleine Anabelle in 1984 and Lawrence Samuel “Larkin” Philpot II in 1987. The family moved to Rolla, Missouri, in 1999.Tim was known as an excellent professor who specialized in engineering mechanics. The author of a best-selling textbook, “Mechanics of Materials,” and developer of award-winning multimedia educational software packages, “MDSolids” and “MecMovies,” Tim was respected by students for his ability to make his subject of mechanics of materials accessible. In fact, though he made an “A” in the course as an undergraduate, he realized as a young engineer, his weakness in understanding key concepts impeded his work in design situations. Thus, the textbook and software programs became his life’s work, and he strove to teach “to the mind’s eye,” which can facilitate the mental visualization so integral to understanding and solving engineering problems.Tim was a registered professional engineer in Missouri and Kentucky. He was the author of many papers in peer-reviewed publications and funded research grants, and received several awards for teaching excellence including the Tau Beta Pi Outstanding Professor Award. He was proud to be the faculty sponsor of the MS&T Steel Bridge Team.Tim was known by his family and friends ...
