Obituary

Mac Tiller of the Yorkton district, beloved husband of Cheryl Tiller passed away on Sunday September 29, 2019 at the age of 71 years. A Celebration of Mac's Life will be held on Friday, October 4, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. from the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre. Memorials in memory of Mac may be made to STARS or to the MS Society of Saskatchewan.

It is with sad and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mac Tiller on September 29th, 2019. Mac was born in the old Yorkton Hospital, the middle child of Fred and May (Macdonald) Tiller. He grew up and was educated in Yorkton, where he was active in sports - spending all of his summers at the family cottage at Melville Beach on Crooked Lake. There he was a member of the Water Ski Club, and was an excellent slalom skier.
After school he began a long and rewarding career with SaskTel in 1966, which took him to Yorkton, Saskatoon and Regina. After 31 years of service he retired at the young age of 49 in 1997. But until recently he never truly retired, keeping busy working with Nortel, consulting for Maple Farm Equipment, then as shareholder and President of Birch Island Land and Cattle Company. In addition to paid positions, he also volunteered at York Lake Golf and Country Club.
His son Jason was born in Saskatoon on March 22nd, 1974. Jason was Mac’s pride and joy, which was evident whether they were chatting about work, planning the next home project, or enjoying a round of golf together. Family was always first and foremost in his life: his son Jason and wife Nicole, and of course his two grandchildren. He absolutely loved being Aidan and Maddie’s Gpa.
Mac was wooed by Cheryl in late 1988, and they were married on October 3rd, 1992. They lived in Regina until 1999, when they decided to live year-round at Crooked Lake. The lake held a very special place in his life and his heart, even after its sale in 2004. Many hours were spent keeping the property in immaculate condition, but always while enjoying every minute of being outdoors, out on the water, and with family and friends. In 2002 they moved back into Yorkton, and on April 1st, 2004 the home they built together was ready to move into. Hours upon hours, tons of sweat and manual labour have gone into the development of their ten-acre property. It is something Mac and Cheryl loved working on together, taking great pride in making it what it is today.
He was always busy with the hobbies he loved: woodworking, golfing, fishing, reading, TV, travel and spending time with Cheryl. Sometimes he took his hobbies a little too seriously, always striving for perfection.
Mac was predeceased by his loving parents, Fred and May, and his mother-in-law Karen. He was our dear husband, father, Gpa, family member and friend. He is survived by his wife Cheryl, son Jason (Nicole) and their children Aidan & Madeline, sister Cheryl (Joe) Rakochy of Saskatoon, brother Tom (Debbie) of Nanaimo, father-in-law Frank Wirl, sister-in-law Michelle (Don) Morris, brother-in-law Scott, nephew Darin (Cindy) Churchill, niece Leigh Ann (Ward) Ouellet, nephew Zac (Montana) Morris, niece Danielle Morris, great nieces and nephews: Spencer Churchill, Gabriel Churchill, Mathieu Ouellet, Brielle Ouellet and Jason’s mother Val Pool. Mitzi is also greatly missing her Big Buddy.
We would like to thank everyone for all of the kind words and heartfelt condolences we have received. We have extreme gratitude for all of the Intensivists, Critical Care Associates and Nurses in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at the Regina General Hospital and will be forever grateful for all of their efforts, kindness and support during the three weeks Mac was there.
Mac’s was a life well lived; a life well loved!
