at the age of 46, after a courageous one-year struggle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
Tim graduated from DP Todd Secondary High School in Prince George. He obtained a Diploma of Technology in Electrical/Electronics from BCIT and a Diploma of Computer Technology in Information Systems from SAIT. He enjoyed science and technology, camping, and hiking.

Tim is survived by his father, John Sutherland, his loving sister Deanna Malcolm, her husband Dan, and their two children Tyler and Megan, his Aunt Jean Okrusko, Uncle Doug (Doris) Sundlie, Aunt Arlene (Harry) Johnson, Uncle George (Pat) Sutherland, Aunt Sister Agnes Sutherland and numerous cousins. He was predeceased by his mother, Margaret (Peggy) Sutherland.
Deepest appreciation to the ALS Society and the ALS Clinic for their support throughout Tim’s illness.
