The url noted will give you information of the Celebration of Life of Tim Jones this Saturday, Jan 25 2014, starting with a parade at 10 am. Tim’s loss is an example of a man whose passion in life was helping others and it was only after his death that many learned of just how much he gave to North Shore Rescue, other ground search and rescue teams, emergency services and the Province of British Columbia.
I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones who worked with Tim. I saw his dedication and passion first hand. He quietly ( and sometimes not so quietly !) taught a lot of us many different things. I am forever thankful for the experience.
Tim, you will be missed.
