July 28, 1946 - July 24, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Tom announces his passing on Friday July 24, 2020 in his 74th year.
Born in Ottawa, Ontario on July 28th, 1946, Tom moved to the west coast of Canada in the early 1970’s. He loved the ocean and made his living towing barges and log booms up and down the coast. The West End was his neighbourhood, First Beach was his backyard and English Bay was his daily overlook. He was a boater, a skier and a golfer, who, memorably, shot a net 59 when he was 71 years old! Tom lived a life surrounded by good friends and we will all miss him greatly.
He was born to Warren and Doreen (Finch). Beloved husband to Mairlyn Storring, loving father to Christopher, Patti-Anne Redmond, and Tara (Stephen Burke). Stepdad to Adam and Tracy. Proud grandfather of Rachel, Samantha (Mark Bell), Christopher Jr, Kylee, Serina and Dylan Burke. Great-Grandfather to Luca, Brianna, and Parker. Cherished brother to Terry (Susan Malo) and Shawn. Uncle to Matthew (Melisa Johns) and Alison (Soo Jeong).
Predeceased by his parents and his brothers Richard and Denis.
In keeping with the family’s wishes a private service will be held at a later date.
