It is with great sadness that the family of Rhodes Bethune (Tim) Evans announce his passing on July 13, 2021. He will be missed by his wife Claire of 68 years, son Tim Jr. and daughter Joanne. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Natasha and Gabriel, and one great-grandchild, Max.

Tim was one of four children born to Dorothy and Trevor Evans, and grew up in Westmount in Montreal. He attended Bishops College School and later Sir George Williams University, graduating with a Bachelors of Commerce degree. He and Claire married in 1953. Tim spent most of his working life as a senior executive at Dupont of Canada, and found a second career as a placement counselor after an early retirement from Dupont. Tim and Claire spent their retirement years on the West Coast, primarily in Victoria.

Tim was an avid golfer and sailor, and enjoyed many summers at the family house in Tadoussac, Quebec. After the move out West, Tim often volunteered his time at Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria.

Always quick with a joke in his heyday, he was kind and generous with family and friends alike. Tim was a very social person, and he and Claire maintained many of their old friendships from the East after their retirement move westward.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at 2:30 pm at Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria, BC.  Condolences may be offered to the family below.

    A sad time. Tim was a wonderful man. He was longtime friend, which my good fortune.

    We had many good times together. The last time was in Victoria in 2003. We had a great time for three days.

    We talked frequently. Reminiscing about the old days. Often going back to our skiing days in the ‘40s.

    Tim will sorely missed but not forgotten.
