Died April 14, 2019 with family by his side at Fairmount Home, Kingston, Ontario.
He will be sadly missed by his beloved wife of 73 years, Peggy; his sons Kit and Jim, daughter Pat; son and daughters-in-law Steve Lawless, Heather Roebuck, Kathy Fraser, and Trish Roebuck; Cecilia Roebuck; grandchildren Lief, Elena, Roy, Lily, Ali and Luis; and great-grandchildren, Aidan, Kiara, Reigna, and Violet.
He was predeceased by his sisters Betty and Kathleen, his son Phil, and grandson Juan. After joining the RAF during WWII Tim came to Canada and became a flight instructor.
He graduated from the University of Alberta and earned a gold medal in English, as well as a Master's degree from McMaster University.
Tim and Peggy loved to dance. He was a strong believer in the importance of unions, social justice, and environmental protection. He loved the 50 summers he spent in Georgian Bay and held that special place firmly in his heart.
The family will be holding a private celebration of life.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the CNIB, Council of Canadians, and David Suzuki Foundation would be kindly appreciated in Tim's memory.
