Age 93, a retired retail executive, moved peacefully on from White Rock, BC, to an eternal life with his Lord on February 11, 2005.
Tom was born October 24, 1911 in Balleymena, Ireland and emmigrated to Canada as a young teenager.
He began work in Winnipeg with the T.Eaton Co. and rose through the organization until retirement with only time away to serve his country during the Second World War as a quartermaster in the European theatre, where he met and married his wife Margaret (Billie) Haley.
Tom was a good and loving husband, father, grandfather and steadfast, reliable friend throughout his rich life.
We were all blessed to know him and are comforted with the knowledge that we shall soon rejoin him in God’s house.
He is survived by his wife Billie, daughter Patricia of Dallas TX., her husband Bill and grandchildren Haley and Liam; his sisters Marian of Winnipeg MB, Ellen of Summerland BC, Sadie of Lachine Quebec, brother Bert and Dave of Winnipeg MB, and many loving friends.
A Celebration of Life service was held at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre on Friday, February 18, 2005 at 1:30 pm.
