Edward (Ted, Timber) William Eric Bolton

January 12, 1936 - January 31, 2015


Passed away peacefully at the Cowichan District Hospital, loved deeply by his family: Son, Bill (Lisa) Daugthers, Shirley (Craig) & Gerda (Jay).  Grandchildren:  Blair, Curtis, Jessie, Nick, Hannah & Corrie.

Brothers:  Lorne (Marilyn) & Alan (Cona).  Predeceased by wife, Inge and sister, Elaine.  Ted was the first son of Fred and Ruth Bolton of the Highlands in Victoria, B.C.  He started logging in 1951 at the age of 15, working in the BCFP Bear Creek Camp, Port Renfrew.  He was a faller and later owned his own logging company with his brother Alan (Buster).  Ted moved his family from Port Renfrew Beach Camp to Lake Cowichan in 1971 and retired in 1992.  He enjoyed his retirement years helping his son with his falling company.  “Timber” absolutely lived for hunting season, prepared all year for hunting season and enjoyed fishing when it didn’t interfere with hunting.  Ted thoroughly enjoyed the company of his family, neighbours and friends who would stop by to visit, share a story and stay for happy hour.  He was a character and will be sadly missed.  Thank you to his doctors, nurses and staff, dentist and staff, pharmacist and assistants and the VIHA Home Support and nurses who all provided him with exceptional service and care through out the years.

To all the Bolton family, my thoughts are with you at this time. My family was friends of the Boltons for years. My parents Fred and Tillie Quick were friends of Fred & Ruth so I got to know all the family pretty well. I haven’t seen any of you for years but wanted to send my condolences. Regards, Sharon Pine (Quick)

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ted. although I never knew him well or for long he was always a pleasure to be of service to. I enjoyed lighting fires for him on the cold winter evenings and listening to stories of his life in the woods. Condolences to all the family. May God bless.
