Tom passed away peacefully on March 24, 2004 at Langley memorial Hospital, surrounded by his family. He was born August 5, 1938 and was the only child of Pete and Hazel Thelin. He grew up in Harrison, and graduated from Agassiz High School.
In 1956 he married Eileen (Watson). He will be sadly missed by their five children, Karen Andrews, Glen (Sheila) Thelin, Grant (Cindy) Thelin, Tammy (Rick) Andrews, and Shelly (Ron) Brewer. He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by many cousins in Canada and Sweden.
In Tommy’s youth he worked as a Bellman at the Harrison Hotel, and then for many years at Rivtow on Harrison Lake.
Dad loved the lake and boats and eventually received his captains papers. In later years he worked for B.C. Corrections until retirement.
A lakeside memorial service will be held this summer. An announcement will follow.
