Timothy Stanutz, passed away unexpectedly on May 15, 2017 in his 58th year. Born in Kirkland Lake, Tim devoted his life to pursuing his passion for music to become an excellent double bass musician. He earned a B.A. in Music (Jazz) from St.F.X.U. (1985) and a specialized music teaching degree from Western U. (1986). He enjoyed a fulfilling 30-year-long career teaching music at Bell High School.
