Timothy Teindl

It is with heavy hearts that the Teindl family announces the sudden passing of their beloved Tim. Timothy John Teindl, born in Trail, BC on July 28th 1960, and passed away in Kelowna, BC on June 12th 2017, with his family by his side. Tim was predeceased by his mother Patti-Anne and his brother Craig.

Tim was known by the people who loved him, as a kind-hearted family man with an incredible sense of humor. He spent over three decades with his loving wife Linda and their deep love and friendship was felt by all that touched their lives. The ultimate gentleman, he loved being surrounded by his family and his many life long friends. Tim enjoyed sharing his love of music, and always had a perfected playlist for any event. A project around the house always kept Tim’s meticulous hands busy. He lived an active lifestyle including interest in multiple sports, and loved travelling with his family.

His work ethic and ability to continuously learn and teach others, was unparalleled. Tim always chose to see the best in people. He didn’t judge, he guided, and always lead by example. He inspired many with his morals and values, which he held close to his heart. His ability and willingness to always lend an ear and sound advice, was one of many reasons he was considered such an amazing role model.

His primary love was his family: his wife Linda; his sons Jarrod (Melissa) and Jesse (Ashleigh) and his three beautiful granddaughters (Makayla, Kaitlyn, and Madison); along with his father, brother, sisters, nieces, nephews, and extended family members. His kids and his grandkids gave him great joy. When with them, Tim was truly proud and at peace. He had a sparkle in his eyes that radiated as they would tell him of their accomplishments, and he was genuinely happy.

Our hero.
