WE were not the greatest golfers, but we enjoyed playing many rounds together and sharing many laughs.

To the Kelly family,
My wife Nancy and I would like to express our condolences at the passing of your wonderful father/grandfather Tom. We had the great pleasure of getting to know Tom over many years during our visits with my Uncle Don and Aunt Ginny Giles at 327 Greenland Pond Road. I also have great memories over the years from golfing with Tom (“money in the bank”) and Uncle Don at the Captains Club. Tom was a great gentleman and we will miss seeing him but find ourselves uplifted with the joy of having gotten to known him.
Sincerely, Glenn and Nancy Giles from Stoney Creek, Ontario

Dear Family,
Playing golf with Tom was the best part of the week. He was always eager to get out there & play. And a good humored companion to boot.
During the games he talked about a lot of things, but was especially proud of his family, in the best possible way, and clearly appreciated all the family get-togethers & parties. The boys were always very gracious about letting Len play with them to makeup a foursome!

We will remember him as a kind, decent man. Our deepest sympathies,

Fondly,
Len Woodford & Gerri Caplan
