Tom was born and raised in Briercrest, SK. Although Tom didn’t personally farm, he always maintained a close connection to his farm in Briercrest and the special friendships he had there. He worked as a teacher and taught in Brownlee, Abbey, Lintlaw and Briercrest, SK with the majority of his 30-year teaching career at Lindale School in Moose Jaw. Tom was an avid reader and loved a good debate on many subjects, especially over breakfast at the Uptown. He enjoyed many travels and adventures with his wife Mary Dell, from Viking cruises in Europe to road trips in the Southern States. Tom had also been a pilot and loved flying with family and friends to different places in Canada and the States. He was always up for an adventure. Most of all, Tom was looking forward to watching his grandchildren grow. He cherished every moment he had with them, including sliding down the slide at the playground with them.
Tom was taken by a fast and aggressive cancer. Even in facing that, he showed his great love for his family and immense gratitude for the life he had enjoyed.
