Timothy Postma

January 3, 1983 - September 16, 2016


TIMOTHY POSTMA was born in Duncan BC on January 3, 1983.  He passed away in Calgary AB on September 16, 2016 as a result of a single vehicle motorcycle accident.  He was the eldest son of Pieter & Betty Postma, and the older brother to Kerry(Colin) Mullett, Julie(Jonathan) Schweizer, Lisa, Colin, Nathan, Reuben and Simon, and an uncle to Chloe, Paige, Penny, Lily, Elsie and Alice.   Tim was also the first grandchild of Herman & Ida van Boven, and part of a large extended family.  Tim was likeable and had many friends in Duncan, Calgary and beyond.  Tim treasured the unconditional love and affection of his pitbull Sam and later, Rosa.

Tim grew up in Duncan and moved to Calgary in his early twenties, working there in the service industry.  He was out having a ride on a clear night, travelling at 70-80 km/hr.  For some unknown reason he hit the median in a corner and lost control, receiving fatal head & neck injuries after hitting a tree.  According to the coroner, alcohol does not appear to have been a factor.  As his family, we are very sad for his passing, however we know he is safe in heaven with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We are asking for your favourite memories to be written and brought with you, or sent to us at colinandkerry@live.com,  so we can make and keep a Memory Book.  We`d appreciate your stories, your memories, and impressions of Tim’s life.  We are all hurting and show that in many different ways.  Tim would want us to have grace for each other.  Tim left a trail, a legacy of touched lives and shared burdens.  He will be missed, but never forgotten, and we look forward to being reunited with him when our journeys join once again.
