Thomas 'Tom' Michael Haigh was 80 years old when he passed away in the presence of his family on May 7, 2014.

Tom was born September 1, 1933, in Glendale, California to parents, Stanley H. Haigh and Margaret Mary Fitzgerald. He grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and was residing in Richardson, Texas at the time of his passing. While living and attending school in St. Paul, Tom met his best friend and soul mate, Joyce Mayou. They were married June 28, 1958 in St. Paul, Minnesota. They were happily in love for the next 50 years and were blessed with 6 children. When they moved to Texas in 1972, they became members of the St. Mark Catholic Church in Plano, Texas. Tom was able to travel the world, both while serving in the Marine Corp during the Korean War, throughout the US on camping trips with his family, as well as later in life with Joyce.

Tom was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce, parents, Stan and Margaret Mary, and brother, Gerald. He was survived by his children, Patrick & Sandra Haigh of Forney, TX; Sheila & Richard Baack of Plano, TX; Valerie & Michael Dutcher of Dallas, TX; Lisa Haigh & Umesh Reddy of Dallas, TX; Michael & Kristen Haigh of Dallas, TX; Matthew Haigh of Richardson, TX; grandchildren, Erric & Julie, Philip, Lance, Tony, Amanda, Tessa, and Danielle & Patrick; as well as his sister, Peg Schuld, and multiple nieces and nephews.

He was a man of great value who walked his truth and a father who left the earth better than it was by raising a terrific bunch of kids. May his soul rest in peace.

Tom has requested that in lieu of flowers that donations to the Alzheimer's Association in honor of Joyce, would be greatly appreciated.

I looked up Tom Haigh in my 1951 Cretin High School year book. Under his picture he listed his Ambition as making the Honor Roll. I think he has
made it.

Dear Pat, Sandra and Family,
I was so sorry to hear about your loss. I knew he was ill but still surprised that he had passed away. When I told Mac, he was alert enough to express concern and to tell you he is so sorry.
Know that your family and friends will be great strength for you.
Love you all,
