The funeral service will be held on Wednesday for a former Red Deer city councillor who was found dead in his Innisfail-area weekend home.

Tim Guilbault, 58, of Calgary was found dead on Monday afternoon at his Red Lodge Estates acreage near Innisfail.

His son, Aaron Guilbault, 31, has been charged with second-degree murder in his death. Aaron is to return to court on Nov. 21.

Tim is also survived by his daughter Caroline Guilbault of Red Deer; two grandchildren, Ethan and Lucas Tymko; his second family Joanne Richard and her children Sebastien and Katherine; and Tim’s seven siblings. He was predeceased by his father Severin Guilbault in 1992.

Tim Guilbault’s funeral will be on Wednesday in the Sanctuary at CrossRoads Church at 1 p.m. Memorial donations may be made directly to the Canadian Mental Health Association in Red Deer at 5017 50th Ave. Condolences may be sent or viewed at www.parklandfuneralhomes.com Funeral arrangements are by Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium.

It will be the second funeral in a week for the family. Tim’s mother Hildegard Guilbault, 87, died on Monday. Her funeral was Friday in Red Deer.

Tim Guilbault served three terms on Red Deer city council from 1986 to 1995.

He was born on Jan 10, 1954, in Glendon and raised on the family farm outside of Red Deer. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Commerce and a masters degree in Communication Studies.

Over his career he worked for Red Deer Co-op, Novacor Chemicals in Joffre, Union Carbide, Halliburton and CEDA International Corp. The last few years, he worked in Calgary in the oil service industry and finally as vice-president of human resources for Brookfield Residential.
