Charles SMITH

SMITH, Charles Thomas. On Saturday, December 24, 2011 at our cabin at Watch Lake, Tom, husband of Jamie died suddenly and unexpectedly. Tom was born in Cold Lake, Alberta on March 16, 1964. He started his nursing career in Vancouver over twenty years ago working in palliative care at VGH and St. Michael’s Hospice. For the past few years Tom worked for Fraser Health in the White Rock area. He brought untold comfort and compassion and touched many lives. Tom’s love of gardening and animals were his greatest passions. Nothing made Tom happier than planting a seed and watching it reach full bloom. He relished in sharing his love of plants with his family and friends. He had many enjoyable times at The Maples community garden in Langley. Tom was happiest walking the beach with Jamie and their dogs, Riley and Abby. Tom loved to travel, sing and dance. He could never remember the lyrics of a song but enjoyed making up his own words belted from the top of his lungs. Tom could make anyone laugh with his quirky sense of humour. Tom is survived by his two sisters Nikki (Wim) and Terry (Doug) and nieces Roberta and Erin. As well as his kids Ben, Becky, Alana and Alexa. His Watch Lake family of Marv and Karen and neighbours alike. And of course the love of his life, Jamie. One Heart, One Love,

One Jamie, One Tom
