Ernie and Marianne Cloutier join with you in sorry at this sad time.

Tizzy was a warm, friendly, and sometimes tease when he visited us at our place of business before we sold. Never saw him in a bad mood or angry and he spoke very fondly of his family especially his grandson. He was a hard worker and a dedicated family man.

His passing will leave a huge void in the lives of all who knew him.

Sherri Thisdelle and family

Sheri, we are so sorry for your loss. Tizzy was a great man. He was always positive and willing to give a hand with a smile! I got to know Tizzy well in the old days at Detour, then even more on that special project in South Africa. Our prayers are with you and your family Sherri.

The family

Tizzy was truly a great man, I am glad to have had the opportunity to work with him and learn from him at Macassa. He was always good for a laugh and the survey team always looked forward to a job if he was going to be working along side us. He spoke very fondly of his family, I am so very sorry for your loss.

The family of Tizzy

My sincere condolences to you the family and friends of Tizzy. I didn't know him very well but when working with him he was always upbeat, and extremely hard working and willing to help.

Our thoughts are with you! May he travel in peace. R.I.P. "Tizzy" until we meet again.

Our best to Sherri and family. Tiz was a caring, generous man and was always there to lend a hand...spoiled Sebastien beyond reproach. He was certainly a character and I think he was crowned Queen of the river at one point. He will be missed.
