  2. Tom and Ruby have been an important of my life. I will always remember them as one. Most importantly I will remember Tom as a man who always saw the best in me (even when I didn’t deserve it). The memory I am always going to carry with me of Tom is at my graduation and valedictorian moment with the EFD when both Tom and Ruby travelled to Edmonton to share the moment together. I have to stop now because I am getting very emotional. I miss Tom and will always.

    We are sad to learn of your loss of Tom. You two were always an inspiring couple to be with because we could see how much you cared for and genuinely liked one another.

    Tom was my art teacher throughout my high school years. I learned so much from him. Not just about art, but how to view the world with a bit of wry humour.

    We shall all miss you, Wee Tom Hutton.

    The Vo Family
