Tim Richardson was born in the late 1950's in south-eastern Ontario. Raised on a farm north of Harrowsmith - a small rural community north of Kingston,  he excelled at many sports in high school and continued with athletics and outdoor recreation while completing a couple of degrees at Queen's University in the late 1970's - early 1980's. 

At Queen's Tim was a member of the gymnastics team and also studied karate, earning his blackbelt by the time he finished his second degree. Tim also participated in the Model Parliament and was elected by his classmates as the leader of one of the political parties. 

Tim was the 4th generation in his family to graduate from Queen's.
