CANTY – Tim

December 23, 1953 – March 2, 2011

Tim Canty passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Wednesday, March 2, 2011. We take comfort knowing he is with his Mother, Father and special Grandmother. Tim was born in Winnipeg Manitoba on Dec 23, 1953. He grew up in Brandon Manitoba and came to Calgary as a teenager. He spent many years here working in Fire Protection. The last 10 years of his life were spent in Red Deer, Alberta with his spouse Debbie Hutton and their dogs.

Above all else, Tim was a genuine person. Always warm and accepting, Tim’s heart for others often brought out the good in them. He lived with a passion that was infectious, eagerly taking on one project after another. Whether it was helping friends and family with home renovations, or working on his classic cars, he lived a happy and fulfilled life. He had good friends in Mexico, and he loved his trips there to relax and visit with them. Unassuming and unfailingly funny, Tim’s quiet strength gave comfort to many. He will be dearly missed.

In addition to his loving spouse Debbie, Tim is survived by daughter and son-in-law Sarah and Anthony Arcuri and grandson Owen of Calgary and Sarah’s mother Fayanne Canty, sister Louise Fox, nephew Tim Fox (Shauna) and their daughters Alyssa and Jamie, niece Valerie Holitski (Howard) and their children Patrick and Lily, niece Tracy Fox, Keanna and Autumn, Dayton and Mason. He will also be missed by in-laws Earl and Eleanor Hutton.

A Celebration of Tim’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Tim Canty, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

    It is with profound sadness that we extend to the family and friends of Tim our thoughts and prayers at this time. We knew Tim through his passionate involvement in the Fire Protection industry. Our memories of Tim span 30 good years. From the wooden toy planes that he made for my then young nephews 25 years ago, to the last time I played pool with him during a business trip in Newfoundland in 2007. Tim’s love of life, family and of friends was inspirational. We will miss him dearly.
    John and Catherine

    Dear Debbie, Louise and Family,

    Tim’s grandfather Taylor and my grandmother, Agnes Elizabeth Fraser Taylor Bell were brother and sister. That made my Mom, Gladys Bell Boyd and your mother and mother-in-law, Dorothy, first cousins.

    I recognized Tim’s name in the Brandon Sun and wish to extend our condolences and sympathy from this branch of the family.

    I remember your Mom and Dad, Louise, yourself and Tim being at our place for supper and also having a visit at your home in Beresford.

    I am also a best friend with Betty Philp, Denny’s wife.

    There seems to be a lot of ties.

    In sincere sympathy,
