Timo Erkki Juhani Taskinen

Passed away suddenly on August 5, at the age of 58.

Cherished by his devoted and loving wife, Verna, his amazing children, Suzanne (Steve) and Chad (Sandra). He immigrated from Finland in 1970 to Kitimat to work at Eurocan Pulp and Paper.

He became a licensed realtor in 1977, moving to White Rock 21 years ago. Enjoying his time with Bay Realty, and loved by all who were touched by his ever present cheerfulness, he is laughing and soaring with the eagles now.

In lieu of flowers donations may be send to: Search and Rescue Society of B.C., 23 Burnside Rd., West Victoria, B.C. V9A 6Z7.

Donations to be shared between White Rock and Savona (Kamloops Lake) as requested by the family.

A celebration to honour Timo’s life will be held on Sunday August 27, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. at Centennial Arena at Centennial Park, 14600 North Bluff Rd. White Rock. Bring, or mail (timo@telus.net) a funny, a moment or a “Timo – ism” in English or Finnish, for the memory box, to be enjoyed forever.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
