Obituary of Timothy Noel Kress

Timothy Kress

1975 - 2024

Timothy Noel Kress passed on to eternal glory May 21, 2024.  Tim leaves behind his wife Christine (Forman) and their four children Isaiah, Jude, Abigail and Gabriel whom he loved deeply.


Tim was the youngest child born to Richard and Jo Anna (Stawowy) Kress on December 21, 1975 in Dawson Creek, BC and lived in Rolla until late 1976.  His family then moved to Mile 67 ½ of the Alaska Highway, close to where he was raising his own family.  In 1979, Tim’s family bought their homestead in Beryl Prairie/Hudson's Hope. Tim grew up there with his 6 siblings on the homestead until he moved to Fort St John to pursue an apprenticeship as a commercial transport mechanic.


 Tim and Christine were making a life together with their children on their farm in Montney, BC.  He was a very loving and dedicated father and husband.  His family was his world.  He worked as the shop foreman at the Western Star/Freightliner dealership in Fort St John.  Tim was a gifted mechanic who had a passion for learning and sharing his knowledge. He loved the outdoors and could often be found sharing that passion with his wife and children.  Tim was devoted to his family and was focused on teaching his four children deep faith, how to serve others and to work hard.  Each of his children carries a part of who their daddy was and they will reflect parts of him as they walk their days on the earth.


Tim was predeceased by his father Richard, his sister Karen, his brother Brad, and his sister in law Heather Kress (Brad's wife).


He is survived by his mother Jo Anna, siblings Greg (Millie), Juliann, Victoria and Doug Kress, and Heidi (Kerry) Skin. His father and mother in law, Myles and Eleanor Forman. His Brothers and Sisters in law Tanya (Claus) Spenst, Yvonne (Dan) Hambly, Lucinda (Shane) Renaerts, Aaron (Richelle) Forman, Marie (Menno) Van Agteren and Matthew Forman.  He is also survived by many, many nieces, nephews, aunties, uncles and cousins.


Tim will be deeply missed by many.  The hole he leaves in the life of his wife and four children will be gaping.
