WILLEMS, Timothy Mylas

March 4, 1949 – September 23, 2017


Bravely, with quiet dignity Tim passed away Saturday 23 September 2017 at the age of 68 years. His sister, sister-in-law and brother were there to comfort him on his last journey brought on by final stage Emphysema.

Tim had a wonderful caring family of Residents and Caregivers in his years at Monterey Place where he was cared for and much loved during games, drama club, dances etc. He will be missed and cherished for enriching others’ lives as they enriched his.

He will be lovingly remembered by his sons Edward, Andrew and Devan; his grandson Tre; his sister Annette Lang (Terry) and nieces Amanda, Crystal, Rebecca; his brother Les (Suzanne) and nephews Alan, Donald, Patrick, Denis; and many more relatives and friends. Tim is survived by his mother Elizabeth (nee Varga) of Pioneer Villa Regina. Tim was predeceased by his father Arnold. Tim’s family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at the Peter Loughheed Center for their kind and compassionate care during this difficult time.

Tim attended SAIT and was actively employed in the Calgary Construction Industry for much of his working life.

His celebration of life will be held in the first week of June 2018 at which time his cremains will be interred at Queen’s Park Cemetery.  Details will be confirmed at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Mustard Seed (www.theseed.ca).

Messages of condolence and confirmation of your attendance at his Celebration in the Spring, may be forwarded to the family at www.cochranecountryfuneralhome.com

    We are sending our love and sincere sympathy to Tim’s family. Tim was a wonderful person who could make you smile with a joke and always a wink. He was a kind person and will be missed by many family and friends.
    Tim is now out of pain and safe in the arms of the Lord. Uncle Arnie will welcome him into heaven and he will rejoice with so many Varga and Willems families.

    Dear Les, Suzanne, and family

    We are thinking of you all during this difficult time. We have fond memories of Tim, while working with him at Spacemakers, and the times he fixed our broken down lawn mower, and wheeled it back up the hill to our house. Tim always had a story to tell, and a wonderful smile. May he rest in peace.

    We would be honored to join the Willems’ at a celebration for Tim in 2018.

    Love Debbie and Rick Tomaszewski

    Our deepest condolences at the loss of Tim. As we are aging, we see his loss as being too young to pass on to the Lord so early. You all have memories of the good days with Tim, which should help in your thoughts while missing him.
