Hanel, Timothy “Tim” Joseph

June 22, 1955 – June 14, 2024
at the age of 68 years:     

On June 14, 2024 Tim passed away peacefully after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer in Salmon Arm, BC.

Tim was born and raised in Saskatoon, SK and worked most of his life in the oil patch in Alberta, then retired to the Shuswap area of BC with his loving wife June.

Tim was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Elsie Hanel, brothers David and Leonard as well as grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. 

Left to mourn are his daughter Jamie Lee, grandsons Darian and Jeremy (JT), numerous relatives and the greatest collection of friends both in Canada and USA.  Tim will be forever loved and missed by his wife June.

Tim was an avid golfer who could hit some amazing shots.  He was also a great singer, guitar player and drummer.  He loved nothing more than impromptu music sessions.

Thank to the medical team that did everything possible to help Tim with a special note of appreciation to Dr. Amy Megyesi for her kindness, compassion and dedication.

Tim’s remains will be interred at Hillcrest Cemetery in Saskatoon, SK and a celebration of life held in Blind Bay BC on dates to be determined.
