BURGESS obituary pictureIt is with deeply saddened hearts that the family of John Timothy “Tim” Burgess announces his sudden passing on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, at the age of 72. Dearly beloved husband and best friend of Sharon. Wonderful and loving father of Brock and Christine (Wayne) Howie. Cherished grandfather of Zoe and Joryn. Dear brother of Bill and brother-in-law of Sandra (Wayne) Webb and Kent (Mary) Bettridge. Lovingly remembered by several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by sister Joan and brother-in-law Roy Westgate. Tim was a retiree of Polysar and loved travelling. He was a devoted family man – his greatest pleasure in life was spending time with family, most of all with his wife, and love of his life for the past 50 years, Sharon. His joy in life was his children, and he felt blessed when he became a grandfather. He will be remembered as a good listener and could be relied upon to provide gentle words of encouragement. He will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him. Cremation has taken place. Family and friends will be received on Sunday, August 24, 2014, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to Children’s Hospital of Western Ontario, London or Ronald MacDonald House (cheques only at the funeral home please). smithfuneralhome.ca
