What a special man Tom was! He and Stella lit up the church , with their presence in the front pew.
I also played golf with Tom, when he belonged to the Westside Seniors Club. He was a keen golfer, and played into his nineties, and delighted us with his skill and "fun" approach to the game.
Peace be with you Tom, and deepest condolences to Stella.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tom through Homecare. He was always so upbeat, fun, and kind no matter the day, nor the circumstances. He was one of my favourite people to visit. Tom, you were a great man from the short time I was able to be in your presence. I’ll miss your sense of humour, your laughter and how particular you were with everything! ❤️

Tom was the most caring and wonderful man. I have fond memories of him at Auggies Cafe and how kind he and Stella were to me when I had surgeries. Deepest sympathy to Stella and the family in the loss of a wonderful man. He lived, loved and left a legacy for all that had the honor of knowing such a wonderful man. Memories are a treasure.
