Tim Lannan, 1950-2006

Long-time summer resident, tour guide and raconteur Timothy “Lone Wolf” Lannan, 55, died January 20, 2006 in Charleston, South Carolina. As a guide in Skagway, he worked for several companies, entertaining visitors, friends and strangers alike with his sharp wit and wry humor. He also conducted fly fishing tours for a time as owner of Lone Wolf Fishing. An animal lover, Tim was known to toss biscuits to area pets to the delight of the tourists.
Born in Philadelphia, Penn. on April 13, 1950, he was raised in Charleston. He was a member of the Notre Dame Club of Charleston and an avid football fan. Garrulous and out-going, Tim enjoyed hunting, fishing, ATV-ing, Harley Davidson motorcycles, and traveling the world, but mostly, telling stories and shooting the breeze.
He is survived by a beloved sister, Barbara Lannan, of Charleston, a niece, two nephews, and eight grand nieces and grand nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Pet helpers, 1430 Folly Rd., Charleston, SC, 29412; or the SPCA Animal Shelter, 3861 Leeds Ave., N. Charleston, SC 29405.
