October 27, 1930 – November 19, 2022
John (Janos) Timar passed away on Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022, at the age of 92.
Born Oct. 27, 1930, in Rudna, Romania, John immigrated to Canada with his family in 1948, settling on acreage in Sumas Prairie. He first worked in the logging industry before beginning his career as a land surveyor in North Vancouver.
Married with three sons, John moved his family back to Abbotsford, started a new business, and began farming. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing and served the community as president of the Abbotsford Badminton Club.
In his later years John returned to Vancouver to help care for his ailing sister while also working in property maintenance. He was a passionate gardener and an outstanding numismatist.
John is survived by his three sons John, (Alison), Les (Lisa) and Lee (Tammara); grandchildren Jonathan (Rachelle), Bethany, Corey (Nazreen), Carmen Aikins (Joey), Christopher: and great grandchildren Amara, Aida and Archer.
Our gratitude to all the staff at VGH that brought him comfort throughout his final days.
A service to celebrate his life will be held on Jan. 7, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at the First Hungarian Presbyterian Church, 2791 E. 27th Ave, Vancouver, B.C.
