Timothy Benn Taro Dickson August 25, 1980: November 16, 2014 Tim died suddenly on Sunday, November 16 in Toronto, his favourite Canadian city. Born on August 25, 1980 in Ottawa, Tim graduated from Canterbury High School in the Visual Arts Program, went on to a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Toronto and this past summer, completed a Masters of Philosophy in Public Ethics at St. Paul's University. Tim loved art and in particular music, spending many a night "spinning" in Toronto clubs. A favourite pastime became composing and recording mixes. He also loved to read and debate philosophy with friends. Tim is the beloved son of his parents, Alberta Dickson and Henry Sano, his stepmother Sharon Hickey-Sano, and brother to Maya. All his extended family and friends miss him. His talents, depth of care for friends, joy of discussion, and all-too-short life will be celebrated at Beechwood Cemetery, 280 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa, ON on Saturday December 6, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00PM.
Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association at any of the National, Provincial, or local levels.
