Hoare, Thomas Harvey

Thomas Harvey Hoare took his last breath at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26, 2009 just nine days after his 92nd birthday at the Rocky View General Hospital.  After a distinguished and decorated career (DFC) as a fighter pilot with the RCAF during WWII he graduated in 1946 from McGill University in geology, he met and married Martha eventually making his home in Calgary. As in life, this remarkable, stoic and energetic man left with great dignity and grace.

He was predeceased by his wife Martha Balfour; grandson Mitchell Bradley; brothers Oliver, Donald, and Allen; as well as parents Thomas and Lena.
