It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father, husband, Papa, and hero.
Tim Oldham passed away peacefully in the night at Riverview Health
Center on the first of October, 2023 at the age of 76. He is survived by his wife Glenda; his children Jeremy (Angela), Kathryn (Derek) and Leslie
(Rob); and grandchildren Nolan, Drayson, Molly, Sam, Chuck, and Sock.
Tim was born in Hamilton and raised in southern Ontario where he began his lifelong career with Home Hardware in his teen years. He then relocated to Brandon, Manitoba in 1981 with his young family in order to grow with the company.
Tim was an active church member and volunteer attending Knox United in Brandon, Selkirk United, and briefly at Westworth United in Winnipeg. He formed many cherished friendships and developed a chosen family through his church communities.
Tim was famous for his easy charm and sense of humour, his love of card
games and magic tricks, dad jokes and amusement parks. Singing all the
time. Fixing or building pretty much anything. Go karts. Skiing. Laying
down on his back to lift his kids up with his feet for an airplane ride.
Cannon balls in the pool and getting right down on the carpet to build a
castle with wooden blocks. A child’s heart to the end.
Celebration of Life will be held at Westworth United Church, November
13th at 1pm. All friends and family are welcome. The family asks that
donations to the Alzheimers society be made in lieu of flowers or other gifts.
Tim’s family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to the
congregation of Knox United for their support through the years of raising children into adults, Selkirk United for being there after Tim’s difficult diagnosis, and Riverview Health Centre for caring for Tim through his final stages of life.
