Tim recently explored his Slovenian heritage, including a visit with his wife, children, and father to extended family in Slovenia.  His grandfather was born and raised in Slovenia and came to Canada in 1929. He and Tim’s grandmother, who have both now passed away, returned to Slovenia on numerous occasions to live there several years at a time.

Tim says” It was when I first took my children to Slovenia in 2012, and took my father with us, that we came to really understand my grandfather much better. It was an emotional experience for our family, and the connection to Slovenia and our family there has continued since that time.”

Tim and his wife Carolyn have three children and two dogs. All are hockey fanatics – especially the dogs.
