His close friends in Whistler, Emilie Massicotte, Anton Gray and Grant Aitchison are saddened at the loss of their friend.
Tim was born and raised in Burlington, Ontario. His kind and friendly nature made him a magnet for friends. He was always warm-hearted and more concerned with the welfare of others than himself. He was, what you would refer to as a gentle and benevolent soul, a person with compassion.
He studied business at St. Mary’s University in Halifax with many of his Nelson friends who also headed east.
He loved watching movies of all kinds. A big part of his life was playing and watching sports, especially his favourites; baseball and hockey! A diehard fan of the Blue Jays and the Toronto Maple Leafs, he loved the opportunity to attend a game in person, especially when his dad was alive.
A friend got him interested in long distance running and no problem; he trained and finished several marathons. He worked at Burlington’s Surf Paradise for more than 11 years, a job he loved and was known for in the community. He enjoyed paddle-boarding with Surf’s Steve on Burlington Beach. He also was passionate about snowboarding which led him to seeking out opportunities and adventures in Whistler.
His mom and Grampa Earl introduced him to fishing at a young age and he was “hooked” you might say. Fishing with Grampa at Lake Nosbonsing, with Cam at Sioux Lookout, with Greg at LaSalle Marina, with family on our annual houseboating adventures on the Trent Waterway system and finally with his friends at Alta Lake in Whistler – anywhere to fish!
We will all miss this gentle, tender-hearted soul with his laughter and that fabulous smile that would light up a room!
If desired, expressions of sympathy in Tim’s name may be directed to The Whistler Healthcare Foundation in Whistler, BC. He always spoke of how caring and kind they were to him.
Or, The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (ICU West) at Hamilton General Hospital, where he received the gold standard of healthcare in early 2020.
