Tim Bosma memorial being held in Ancaster

A memorial will be held in the Hamilton community of Ancaster on Friday for Tim Bosma who was found murdered earlier this week after disappearing while taking two men for a test drive of his pickup.

The City of Hamilton is offering the public a chance to pay their respects and sign a book of condolences at Ancaster Old Town Hall beginning at 2 p.m.

Ancaster Coun. Lloyd Ferguson said in a release that on behalf of Hamilton, “we express our heartfelt condolences” to Tim’s wife Sharlene and their family.

“Our entire community is mourning this loss and wanting to express their condolences,” he said. “This is an opportunity to do so while also respecting the family’s need for privacy.”

The book of condolences will be available to sign from 2 p.m.-9 p.m.

Bosma disappeared on the evening of May 6 after taking two men for a test drive of his black Dodge Ram pickup that he had listed for sale online.

On Tuesday, his remains were found at a farm in Waterloo Region.

Dellen Millard, 27, was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder as well as forcible confinement and theft over $5,000, and police are still looking for at least two suspects. Millard’s lawyer said his client is innocent and would plead not guilty.

Police were conducting searches at two properties owned by Millard, the heir to Millard Air, and three vehicles in Hamilton.
