Timothy Clarence Dafoe
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Tim. He is at peace at last. Tim passed away on Sunday, February 4, 2018. He is survived by his son William Dafoe; brother Barry Dafoe; sisters Janet Sarich and Shannon Beatty; and William’s mom Melanie Propp. Our fondest memories are of Tim at his happiest when he was doing what he loved; hunting, fishing, trapping and sharing this knowledge with his son William. Tim was born in Hudson Bay, SK on June 29, 1959, grew up in Shellbrook, SK and loved to spend time at his grandparents farm in Mont Nebo, SK with his “uncle” and best friend Tony. Tim had a great sense of humour and liked to tease those he loved. He had the best nicknames for all of us. When William was young, he and Tim would have a “good night fight” every night before bed when a wrestling match was held on the living room floor. Tim loved spending time with his son, and was so proud of William. He was a man of few words and did not share his personal turmoil with his loved ones. We knew he was hurting but were unable to help him. We take comfort in knowing he is free of all the pain he knew in this life. The family will gather for a private farewell at a later date. Memorial donations may be made in Tim’s memory to your local Mental Health and Addiction Services programming or to the Royal University Hospital Foundation in support of the dedicated mental health emergency unit at 103 Hospital Drive, Saskatoon, SK S7N 0W8.
