Tom was born in Montreal, Quebec. He loved watching boxing with his father, was a waterboy for the Montreal Alouettes and was an active leader in Scouts Canada for many years. Tom instilled the love of the outdoors, a strong work ethic and the value of a dollar with his children.

During retirement, Tom enjoyed traveling throughout North America, Ireland, Scotland, England and Portugal. Tom and Lynda moved from Oakville to Tillsonburg in 2013 and were active members at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church and attended St. Paul’s United Church.
