Tim Willey – June 11, 1959 – July 10, 2015
Tim gracefully passed away into the presence of his Lord at the age of 56 with his family by his side on July 10, 2015. He was a loving husband to his wife Carol of 37 years, a wonderful father to daughter Jessica Fricker and daughter Nicole & son-in-law Jody Giesbrecht and cherished Grandpa to Robyn & Austin Giesbrecht and Jocelyn Fricker.
Born to Ken & Keay Willey in Flin Flon Manitoba on June 11th, 1959, Tim was the oldest of four children. His siblings Rick, Joan & Allan hold a special place in his heart. Tim grew up in Kimberley BC enjoying the beauty and activities of the area.
Tim enjoyed a wonderful career with Overwaitea Foods for 38 years in the meat department.
Starting in Fort Nelson, BC then on to Mission, Hope, Princeton, Creston, Fort St. John and ending with 11 years here in Salmon Arm.
Tim had a passion for the Lord and never missed an opportunity to share with others.
He genuinely cared for people and made everyone feel valued.
He was a kind and loyal friend to many and was always the life of a gathering. He was known for his quick wit and humor as well as for his wisdom, guidance and steadfast faith.
Next to faith and family Tim’s favorite pastimes were riding his motorcycle and playing hockey.
Tim’s name means “Honoring God” and he lived that to the fullest daily.
We would like to thank all who had a part in this journey with us. Your compassion & caring leave us with no words to express our thanks and gratefulness.
Very sad to have heard of Tim’s passing . May he be at rest now .
