Tom dedicated his life to serving others. After a varied and exciting career in the military, having served in the British Navy, Army, Palestine Police and the Canadian Air Force, he became a counselor for The Alberta Drug and Alcohol Commission.

Tom lived his life with laughter, love and compassion. He would often say I am but the sum total of all I have met. He was an avid soccer player and golfer. He enjoyed spending his retirement in the company of the members of the Lacombe Golf and Country Club where he played daily for many years. He loved nature, camping and philosophy. He painted, wrote poetry, and spent countless hours helping others Somewhat of philosopher himself, he was known for his words of wisdom and advocated that most of life’s problems are caused by our inability to follow simple instructions. He felt our solutions lay in the ability to forgive and our sense of humour.

He will be greatly missed.
