Ted Tichinoff

TICHINOFF, Ted - 1955-2019 Ted Tichinoff, lover of life, adventurer, consummate risk taker and optimist, died suddenly this week near his cottage in Temagami. A voracious reader, Ted was curious and passionate about the world around him. He and his partner of 34 years, Elodie (nee Rowe), travelled the world, often in the company of great friends with whom they shared a desire to learn and explore. Born in Timmins in 1955, Ted had a true Northern spirit; independent, resilient, and deeply connected to the environment around him. After completing a BA at the University of Western Ontario, and law degree at the University of Toronto, his family and love for the outdoors drew him back to Timmins. There, he joined, and eventually became head partner of Evans, Bragagnolo and Sullivan, one of the oldest law firms in Timmins. Ted was a brilliant trial lawyer and a relentlessly hard worker. He believed in his colleagues and clients and delighted in giving back to his community, including serving on boards of many clubs and charities. His accomplishments are too many to name. When he arrived on Lake Temagami, Ted knew he was home. Nothing on this earth could keep him away. He often braved the dark, bad weather, and broken ice, to reach a place that rejuvenated and inspired him. Ted leaves behind his beloved wife Elodie, and their three children, Alexandra, Joel, and Samuel. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters, Roman, Dan, Frances, and Linda and is predeceased by his parents Harry and Nena Tichinoff. Though his departure was sudden and unexpected the knowledge that Ted was somewhere that brought him joy and where many memories were made, brings his family great peace. He will be missed. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 6, 2019 at 1pm at Covenant United Church (230 Eighth Ave Timmins, ON) The family will receive friends on Friday, July 5 from 7-9 pm at LESSARD-STEPHENS FUNERAL HOME and on Saturday July 6, 2019 from noon until 1pm at the Covenant United Church.
