In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that the Tozer family announces the unexpected passing of Simon Tozer. Simon passed away unexpectedly, just outside of Nanaimo, on February 21st, 2022, at the age of 52. He left the world on Family Day, living life to the fullest with his son Devin, and nephew Brennan, by his side.
Simon was born in England in 1969 and moved with his loving family to Canada in 1973. He was raised in Nanaimo and graduated from NDSS in 1988, then from BCIT in Electrical Engineering Technology in 1995. He worked in his field of study for the past 30 years and recently embarked on an ambitious new business venture which was moving towards great success. He was greatly respected by his colleagues.
Simon was married to his high school sweetheart Sandra, who has been the love of his life for the past 35 years. They built a beautiful life together with two, now grown children, Lindsay and Devin who meant the world to him. He was a wonderful, loving husband and father.
Simon is survived by his wife Sandra, children Lindsay & Devin, Mother and Father Jacqueline & Alan Tozer, Sister Sarah (James) Bonar, Mother and Father-in-Law Ann & Alfred Stefanson, Brother-in-Law Todd (Elly) Stefanson, and his niece and nephews, Rebecca Stefanson and Brennan & Ryan Bonar.
Simon was a kind, generous, confident man with a great sense of humour. He was known for his story telling abilities and told many tales of his adventures in life. He was inventive and was the voice of reason.
Simon loved spending time out on his boat fishing with his buddies. Although it wasn’t expected to be so soon, he requested that when the time came, his ashes be spread out to sea in one of his favourite fishing areas off the West Coast. He loved to travel, had a strong passion for singing, and liked strumming his guitar. He had acquired a love for gardening from his mother and granddad, and his daughter, Lindsay, will now be taking care of his expansive garden and greenhouse for her dad.
Because Simon celebrated life, he will be honored with an outdoor Celebration of Life which will be planned for late spring, early summer.
Simon will be deeply missed by the many who loved him and will be forever in our hearts ‘until we meet again’.
