Date of Passing: May 10, 2022Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
February 10, 1944 - May 10, 2022
With saddened hearts, we announce the passing of our brother, uncle and friend, Ronald Lloyd Timlick, on May 10, 2022, at the Health Sciences Centre at the age of 78.
Ron was predeceased by his parents, Helen and George Timlick, and sister Gayle. He is survived by his brothers, Bob Timlick (Marion), Brian Timlick (Brenda), and Bernie Timlick, sister Linda Gallant (Dave), nieces and nephews, Dave, Doug, Shelley, Candice, Raimey, Jill, Christine, Carly, Andrew and Ian, and many great- and great-great-nieces and nephews.
After a childhood marked by Polio, Ron found purpose as a Navy Cadet in his teens. He got his first chemistry set in 7th grade, and a few experiments and fires later, he graduated with a science degree from the University of Manitoba and spent his career as a grain inspector for the Canadian Grain Commission. Ron was a devoted companion to his widowed mother right up until her own death, both great football fans. Upon retiring, he travelled, volunteered, helped people with their income tax returns, dabbled in experimental building design and game development, and so much more. He loved to travel around Manitoba to festivals and suppers, and he especially loved treating friends and family to great food, entertainment, and companionship at Folklorama. His home was filled with a variety of interesting music, movies, books, and who could forget his collection of vases, for which he so enjoyed the stories depicted on each.
Before his stroke in August of 2021, he could be seen riding his bicycle around River Heights year round. He loved family celebrations and generally came bearing intriguing gifts. Ron was a quiet, generous, unique person with a quirky sense of humour, and he will be missed.
Thanks to everyone at Maples Personal Care Home and Riverview who helped with his care.
A celebration of Ron's life will be held in August for the family, and his remains will rest at Assumption Catholic Cemetery.
A donation in his memory to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I remember Ronnie as a very kind man with a gentle nature a wry sense of humour. During a discussion of the fine points of grading grain, the use of the term "Trace" came up. Ronnie quickly offered "a trace amount is just a little bit more than nothing" ! We all broke up, and I still laugh about it to this day. Great memories. - Posted by: Brian Hammond (Co-worker) on: Jun 11, 2022
Ron was a unique personality and very much the gentle character. Always a quick grin and ready to offer his help in a unique manner that only "Ra" could offer. He is the only person I knew that was run over by a bicycle when riding his motorcycle. He still showed up to work where he was patched up by co-workers. Lots of unique moments working with you. - Posted by: Sandypelletiergoral@gmail.com (Co-worker ) on: Jun 08, 2022
We worked together at the Commission and became good friends. I haven't seen you for decades and this passing notice brought back memories. I'm 72. Miss you Little Ronnie. - Posted by: Richard Trager (friend) on: May 23, 2022
