Thomas William Eastland

Here’s one for Stomper. He guarded us all.

His love for his wife Joan solid and true. 35 years of marriage was a sentence he found easy to do. Confined for life with three sons Darren, Chris and Terry. Respect from us earned by the names that we used. Tom, Pops, Dad all meant the same, thanks for adopting us and giving your name. A gang of a family adopted him too. The beers and the wine he labeled and capped, political correctness he knew was crap. In the Navy he started, construction for a bit, but corrections is where he found his fit. To earn his respect was a badge only given to few once it was given we honored its worth. ALS came to take you, another sentence you met head on as was your way. No weakness or self-pity was acceptable for you. At the end I was honoured to be by your side to see the one tear that leaked from your eye as you finally let go and ascended with pride to patrol us all from the heavens. You will be missed and remembered, Tom, from every one of us inmates that had the extreme fortune to be held in your solitary confinement.

Stomper my good friend....

He was a good, honest man, not to mention a very influential father type figure to many. We are all put on this earth to serve in one form or another. He did his service and much more.

What came out of Stomper's mouth, if not hilarious was indeed genuine and truthful on all fronts. He said it the way it was and never gave a 'darn' what others might have thought. Tom stood up for what was right and carried many men and women through some dark times. He personified courage and honesty. All who were family, friends and colleagues were very lucky to have him in their lives.

It must have been overwhelming to see more and more of Tom being taken away by A.L.S. I am relieved that his suffering has finally ended but he will be most certainly missed by many.

Missed but never forgotten..... It is sad and yet honorable at the same time to see a great warrior complete his mission of earthly service.

In deepest respect and sympathy during this sad time, my prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends.

Take care brother and we will see each other again in a much better place.

In sincere respect,

Kevin E. BEDORE (aka Bunky among other aliases....) Saskatoon.
