Tom is home
On January 6, 2022, Tom was released from the pain of Pulmonary Fibrosis and resides with His God, the one he prayed to, and sometimes fought with, every morning of his life.
He was known as Tom, Honey, Bumpa, and Papa and too many more to mention.
He is interred in the hearts of his wife of 36 years, Lorna; children, Freya, Tim, Josh (Tracy), and Kevin (Lovely); grandchildren, Xar, Shepard, Ty, JM, Jessica, and Jasper; siblings. Barb, Norm (Lara), and Brian (Debra).
Tom lived a life of sobriety in AA where he mentored many; offering lodging, a shoulder to lean on, and being the one to answer those middle of the night calls no one else would.
He had broad shoulders-he was strong. His hugs all encompassing, his heart beating through his work shirt onto those whom they encircled, his smile providing all the light we periodically needed in a sometimes dark world.
Because of COVID restrictions we as a family have decided to hold Tom's Celebration of Life in the Spring. There are far too many people and we know Tom's wish would be to have all who wanted to celebrate, bringing us all together as He always did. This beautiful video is a work of luv from his daughter Tracy.
We luv him, we miss him
