    I am very saddened by the news of Tom’s passing. I worked with Tom in District 6 for a number of years and I will always remember is his excellent sense of humour. I will always remember the Communications Christamas parties where a group of us would laugh so hard our cheeks would hurt. I am very sorry that we lost touch. My deepest condolences to Lynda, Angela, and Jennifer. I will always remember the laughter!!

  7. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom’s family and loved ones. Although we never worked together our paths crossed a number of times during our careers. Every time I saw him he put a smile on my face and I don’t really know why. He enjoyed his time at CPS and he will be truly missed by those who had the opportunity to work with him and know him.
    He goes before us to prepare our way and I will look forward to seeing him again.

    I was Assistant Principal at Victoria School when Tom worked there as the Community Coordinator. He and I were the two male chaperones on a trip to the American Southwest with a group of Grade 8 & 9 students. He was a great fellow to have along as we got the kids up in the morning and made sure everyone was in bed on time in the right room at night. I remember that as a highlight of my career and think of Tom often because of it. I’m sorry we lost touch and I was saddened to see he had passed on.
    Ann and I send our best wishes to the whole family.

    God Bless and strengthen you.

    Tom: although we drifted apart I thought of you often. We had so many laughs and great times I can’t help but smile. On a bad day you always made me laugh – you made everyone laugh; that was you Tom. I will always remember our drive along the North Shore in Hawaii and New Years Maui, that. ..I will never forget.

    As I write this a tear runs down my cheek…you were a dear friend and I am a better man for knowing you Tom – rest well my friend.

    Lynda, Angela, Jenn and family – please accept my heartfelt condolences.
