Mr. Michael Timleck

On the morning of Wednesday April 7th, 2021, Mr. Michael Bruce Timleck of Chatham passed away suddenly in his 74th year.  Cherished son of the late William and Anne Timleck.  Beloved husband of Janet.  Loving and devoted father of Joshua Timleck and his wife Kana of Vancouver, B.C., Kaleena Cryderman and her husband Rob of Chatham, and Mallory Timleck of Chatham.  He will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Dylan, Madison, Miles, Hannah, and Colten, all of whom he greatly adored.  Dear brother of Linda Walsh, Bonnie Yull, Christine Morrison, Tony Timleck, and Jim Timleck.

An avid athlete in his youth, Mike’s love of lacrosse brought him from Etobicoke to Wallaceburg. He joined the Wallaceburg Red Devils lacrosse team in the 1980’s and spent many years with the organization. He worked for years as an Iron Worker, until starting a family, where he found employment with Eaton Yale in Wallaceburg.

Later in his life he developed an immense passion for golf and played in many leagues around Chatham Kent, mostly notably at Deer Run Golf Course in Blenheim. An active member of the community, he spent time coaching his children’s sports teams, and hours upon hours tending to his garden and showcasing his work to the neighbourhood.

To the people around him, he played a larger than life character, a superhero of sorts. Friends and family find solace in the fact he traded in his cape for angel wings and will continue to look down upon his loved ones with the care and attention he provided them in life.
