1953 - 2023
Tim went home to be with the Lord after a massive heart attack at home on his deck, on June 23.
Left behind, but looking forward to seeing him one day, is his wife of 42 years Theresa; children, Gerry, Neil, Phil, and Anne Marie; and sisters, Pat (Emile) Proulx and Melody (Greg) De Groot.
After graduating from Tech Voc in Winnipeg, he went into printing, and eventually transitioned into a child care career at Marymound and Seven Oaks Youth Centre.
Tim was an easy going, laid back, and soft-spoken guy with a great sense of humour (puns were his specialty) which worked well with the troubled youth.
Tim tired of shift work and started taking computer courses, which opened a door as a programmer for the Manitoba Government. He worked there for 30 years and retired in 2018.
Tim had different hobbies over the years including photography, scuba diving, playing pool, and geocaching. But his passion was playing his guitar. He was self taught as a teenager, and after becoming a Christian, dedicated his talent for the Lord.
He was involved in prison ministry for many years including Manitoba Youth Center, Stony Mountain Institution, and Headingley Jail. He would sing, give his testimony, and encourage the guys that it was not too late to change with God's help.
He was also very involved in church with worship teams, choir, and homegroup. He also regularly volunteered at Siloam Mission.
During retirement he enjoyed his crossword puzzles and travelling especially the winter getaways to Mexico with Theresa.
The memorial service will be held at 1:00pm on Friday, June 30 at Church of the Rock (1397 Buffalo Place).
His legacy will live on through his family and friends.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your path straight.
~Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
