TK (as he was known to most) was born May 23, 1948 in Kimberley, BC. After graduating High School in Kimberley, he worked for Cominco in Pine Point and Greenland before moving to Vancouver and attending BCIT to attain his Instrumentation Diploma. He moved to Nelson in 1976 and shortly after met and married Marg. TK worked for the Ministry of Environment for most of his life in Nelson taking a couple of years to work with his father-in-law Ken as a home renovator. Upon retiring TK and Marg moved to Oliver to help his brothers with a winery and renovations. In both Nelson and Oliver, TK was involved with the community giving back in appreciation for the nurturing his community provided his family. He has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support, messages and visits from friends near and far in the past few weeks.
From our first visits to hospital in Penticton and Kelowna we have been so impressed with the kindness and quality of care provided by the people working in our Health Care System. Though they are working long hours in overcrowded conditions they always greeted us with smiles and empathy.
With the support of his sons, TK has been able to be at home the past few weeks where they have taken care of his every need and shared endless memories of their lives. A special thanks to Erica and Brittany for their emotional and daily support.
TK had an obsession with fishing, making it his absolute favorite pastime. He would dedicate countless hours to exploring Kootenay Lake, always in pursuit of reeling in another big one. In the future, the family plans to hold a personal tribute at his cherished cabin on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake
