Tim McGuigan      

Split Rail Village
 
   Rain, snow, sleet, or hail, the show must go on! That’s because Timothy McGuigan plays to a very special audience. Since his retirement and subsequent relocation to Beacon Woods in 1993, he has pursued what he believes to be his “dream career.” For the past 18 years, Timothy has swelled veterans’ groups, nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and special needs units with song. In the process, he showers his audiences with the gift of smiles.
   For more than thirty years, Timothy had been a licensed hair stylist in Baltimore. After retirement, he soon realized that he needed to be busy, so when Windsor Woods advertised for a beautician, he jumped at the chance. Remarkably, it was in this setting that he discovered his latent talent as an entertainer.
   Since that time, Timothy has enjoyed a remarkable run. In addition to smaller group gigs, he quickly landed parts at the local Show Place Dinner Theater and has played to audiences in such shows as Annie and La Cage aux Folles. He was riding high when in the midst of these remarkable successes life slammed him with an unthinkable whammy. In 1996 he was diagnosed with bladder cancer and for the next three years underwent all the difficult procedures that accompanied it. True to form, he refused to go down for the count and came back more determined than ever to live the rest of his life to the fullest.
    Today in, addition to his musical performances, this determined troubadour counsels ostomy patients, cuts and styles hair at Helen Ellis Hospital and the Pasco Hernando Hospice House, and sings at the Veterans Hospital in gratitude for the excellent care be received there. A wardrobe of over fifty costumes makes this one-man revue a dapper sight in anyone’s book.
   Early in life, Tim got the best of training from an Irish mother whose no-nonsense wisdom laid the foundation for the future success of her four sons. Respect, discipline, and hard work became the cornerstones of their daily lives. These values came into play during the Korean War when Tim served as a medical corpsman in the US Navy from 1953-1956.
    Tim looks back on the years and knows that they have been good. He was well loved as a hairdresser, appreciated as an entertainer, and recognized for his many accomplishments. But he is most proud of his work with veterans. In 2012 the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs commended him for enhancing the vets’ quality of life throughout the year. “You always bring a little sunshine into the lives of our veterans. Thank you for all you do.”
   In 1999, The Show Palace Dinner Theater named Tim “Showman of the Year.” He was presented with a plaque which read For the man who never met a stranger and touched so many lives with a song in his heart. This sums up Timothy McGuigan who has used his talents to make his small world a happier place and in the process has spread smiles and good will to the larger worlds around him.
