Tim E. Price 1957-2023

Timothy Evan Price died peacefully on the morning of December 21, 2023 after a long but valiant battle with cancer. His thoughtful and positive demeanor remained intact until the very end as he said goodbye to his family and friends.


Tim was born in Montreal on September 20, 1957, the eldest son of Tom and Merne Price’s three children. He grew up in the Town of Mount Royal, spending weekends in the Eastern Townships at his grandparents’ farm and summers in the Lower St-Lawrence at their family home in his beloved Métis-sur-Mer.


Tim left Montreal at age 13 to attend Bishop’s College School in Lennoxville, QC like generations of his family had done before him. He excelled in all aspects of student life while at boarding school. He was an exceptional all-around athlete, playing hockey, football, cricket, rugby, and tennis while also taking on leadership positions. He made great friends at BCS, many of whom he remained in contact with regularly until the very end. Following BCS, he attended Queen’s University in Kingston, ON where he played rugby and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce. 


Tim commenced his career working for an investment firm in London, England before qualifying as an accountant in Toronto and Bermuda. He then returned home where he joined the Montreal investment firm, MacDougall, MacDougall, & MacTier. He held a number of positions at the firm including President & CEO, and eventually Chairman before the firm was acquired by Raymond James. He was a valued contributor on the Raymond James Canada board of directors, in addition to other volunteer boards such as the Investment Industry Association of Canada, the Investment Dealers Association, Bishop’s University, Bishop’s College School, the Black Watch of Canada Foundation, the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, and the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation among others. He was elected as a City Councillor in the City of Westmount where he was instrumental in the construction of the Westmount Recreation Centre.


He made significant contributions to the development of sport while serving as President of the Montreal Racket Club and the North American Racquets Association. He was a longtime member of the Hillside Tennis Club and Queen’s Club, London as well as an Honorary Member of the Montreal Racket Club and the Detroit Racquet Club.


Tim was known for his thoughtful and practical nature. He will be remembered as a discerning individual who was valued for his balanced point of view. He led by example and was calm in the face of crisis. He had the keen ability to make friends everywhere he went and, more importantly, was committed to maintaining these friendships regardless of geographical distance.


His life was complete and deeply meaningful in every dimension. He will be remembered as a true gentleman, in every sense of the word. 


Tim is survived by his wife, Denise, his children, Tom and Chella, and his siblings, Karma (John) and Brian (Meg). A funeral will take place Tuesday, January 9 at 11 am at the Church of St. Andrew & St. Paul in Montreal. In July, Tim will be buried at the family’s summer home in Métis-sur-Mer.
