It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Tim, our beloved husband, brother, uncle, and friend, on Friday December 29, 2017 at the Strait Richmond Hospital in Evanston, NS following a courageous battle with cancer.

Tim enjoyed meeting new people. He was able to interact with the public during his time working at LeMoines's Grocery, LoFood, Rollie's Wharf, and Steele's Monuments in North Sydney.
In 1996 Tim joined the Superstore Family in North Sydney. Over the years he worked at their locations in Antigonish, NS, Chester, NS, Grand Falls, NB, New Minas, NS, and Port Hawkesbury, NS, where Tim has spent the last 17 years.

Tim will be also missed by his father and mother-in-law, Ernest and Mary Jane Dewar, and sisters-in-law, Patricia Dewar, Geraldine McCarthy and Francine McCarthy.
Along with his parents, Tim was predeceased by, his brother, Mickey, and faithful companion, Coal.
Tim and his family will always be grateful for the many medical professionals who helped him through his illnesses. His "chemo girls" will always have a special place in our hearts. Tim will also be missed by his many other relatives and friends.
