Tim Myers

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Tim at his home, at the young age of 66, on February 11, 2024.

Tim lost his brave and determined battle with lung and brain cancer, closely surrounded by his long-time partner, Cindy Johnston, his children and his grandchildren. He was the cherished and loved father of Luke Myers (Lacey Young), Winchester area and Shannon Charbonneau (Lee) of Orleans, ON. His passing will leave a painful void in the hearts of his grandchildren, Lauren Myers, Koen Myers, Rylee Myers and Stella Myers.

Predeceased by his parents, Hugh Myers and Edith (Hamilton) Myers of Phillipsville, ON; his sister Eleanor Dubbleman, brother-in-law Peter Dubbleman and little Billy Dubbleman, all of Wilton, ON; nephew Tony Myers, East Camden; brother-in-law Rob Braun (Kingston); and father-in-law Garnet Johnston (Jasper, ON).

Left to mourn are his large, loving and supportive family of sister Doreen Maybee, Kingston, ON; brother Jim Myers (Sandra), Westbrook, ON; brother Charles Myers (Wilma), Phillipsville, ON; sister Lucy Myers, Nepean, ON; sister Nicholeen Lake (Norm), Amherstview, ON; brother Gerard Myers (Marie), Barrhaven, ON; sister Patsy Mindorff (Mike), Milton, ON; brother Michael Myers (Laurie), Markham, ON; sister Margie Thake (Brian), Westport, ON; sister Josephine Steele (Bill), Abbotsford, B.C.; sister Dolores Braun (Mark), Kingston, ON, brother Gord Myers (Jennifer) Mechanicsville, Va; and brother Walter Myers (Linda), Kingston, ON.

Tim will also be very missed by his mother-in-law Doris Johnston, Perth, ON; sister-in-law Debbie Johnston (Gerald McKenna, deceased), Perth, ON; brother-in-law Rick Johnston (Margie), Morrisburg, ON and sister-in-law Sherri Johnston (Dan Moran), Perth, ON.

He was a very special uncle to a wonderful and supportive group of nieces and nephews who he loved dearly: Heather James, Teresa Malpage, John Myers, Chrissy Tolles, Sean Maybee, Chris Myers, Tom Myers, Kim Read, Scott Myers, Jeff Lake, Adam Myers, Josh Myers, Ben Myers, Caitlin Myers, Ryan Mindorff, Ashley Mindorff, Brenna Millar, Carlye VanderWoerd, D’arcy Myers, Matt Thake, Allie Thake, Jennifer Steele, Brittany Passe, Jason Steele, Ashley Braun, Danielle Carlin, Cassie Christopherson, Brendan Myers, Abbey Myers, Cam Myers, Karina Theriault, Rikki Johnston, Joel Johnston, Sharlee Moran and DanniAnn Moran.

Many thanks to Dr. Alec Makoshi (Civic Hospital) for performing the first miracle with Tim and oncologists Dr. Stephanie Brule and Dr. David Tiberi of the Ottawa General Hospital for the care provided.

Dr. Ivanovich, Carleton Place, thank you for being there and guiding us throughout this journey. As our family GP, you have been with us every step of the way and we appreciate the compassion, honesty and in-home care you so kindly provided during those last weeks.

Bayshore Community Care, and the PSS team (Heather, Brenda and Tracey), thank you for everything you do.

To the Lanark Community Paramedic Service and especially Clint, thank you for your assistance and regular visits.

Alex, Tim’s primary care nurse, you’re the absolute best. Thank you! He would always listen to you.

To Tim’s work family, Kott Lumber, thank you for your support throughout. Your kindness was more than appreciated and won’t be soon forgotten. I’ll be in touch, Wendy.

To Braebon Medical, your understanding and patience were immeasurable. Thank you Liz, Rick and the entire Braebon family. I could not have done this without you. Liz, thank you for your support and for lending an ear when needed.

To our children and grandchildren, you faced this with immense bravery and love for your dad and poppy. He always was and will continue to be very proud of you. I know it meant the world that all of you were with him when he left on his next journey. And thankfully, we are left with wonderful memories to look back on. Your children will miss the family BBQs – they just won’t be the same – we’ll remember it’s not done til you say it is. The summer camping trips to Murphy’s Point will be remembered fondly – except for maybe biking into Perth to get warmer clothes. The backyard rink and street hockey games will be missing a special player with the crazy crooked helmet. Your grandchildren will miss going on the trail rides and walks and getting a SLUSHIE at the end of the adventure; they’ll miss your trademark hot chocolate and marshmallows after a day out in the cold. No one ever made a peanut butter and honey sandwich like you – one piece of bread with mounds of PB and honey – always folded in half! I even think they’ll miss you telling everyone to get outside, it’s too nice to be in the house.

Well Tim, we’ve said our good byes but you will never be forgotten. It’s very lonely and your absence is truly missed.

Enjoy cheering on your Leafs, Jays, Raptors and 67s. P.S. Rachel Homan won the tourney over Jennifer Jones this weekend.

We’ll gather up on the hill under the big tree this spring. In the meantime find a dock, watch the sunset disappear and drink a beer. You’ve got beautiful people to gather round and keep you company.

For those who choose, donations to CHEO or the Canadian Cancer Society would be most appreciated.   

Always Remember IT IS WHAT IT IS
