Originally from New Plymouth and late of Waimate, New Zealand.

Tim passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family, in the Timaru Hospital on Monday, 27th March 2023.Β  At the time of his passing, Tim was only 78 years of age

Tim leaves behind the love of his life and soulmate, Gail, and children, Joelene and Clay.

Tim, or Poppa, or Grumpy Old Shit as he was better known, also leaves behind his adoring grandchildren Tyler, Brianna, Jasmyn and Niahm, each of whom will always remember him for constant teasing and loving advice.Β 

Tim also leaves behind his many friends and workmates, each of whom will have many wonderful memories of his loyal friendship and the things they got up to behind the boss’s back. And we don’t know the half of it.

At this time, Tim’s family would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses, and Support staff of The Timaru Hospital (NZ) Palliative Care Unit for their care and attention that helped to make his final days as happy and peaceful as possible. He was still giving the nurses a hard time and made many of us laugh right up to the end.

In accordance with Tim’s wishes, he has been privately cremated.









Messages from Friends & Family

Tim ….. firstly I’d like to say thank you for being a friend. Since I started working at 17yr young, you showed your kindness to me as a young, very green office junior at Glass Repair Service in Sydenham Christchurch. For 8 years we were colleagues and enjoyed some super times over those years. My wedding. Your wedding to Gail. Then my son was born and I left work but we continued to have contact. Sometimes it was a while in between chats. And more recently it’s been messages on FB messenger. Sharing so many memories and laughs. Your cheeky smile I’ll always remember. You wore shorts day in day out no matter the seasonYour love for your family. You’ll be missed but never forgotten.Glass Base to 9 0 Your job is complete. See you on the other side. Over and out. β€œMama”
