  1. Scott and the rest of Tom’s family:

    I was saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. I knew him very well when he was involved with the Alberta fish and Game Association and also the Canadian Wildlife Federation. He never backed down from an issue he believed in. His quick thinking gave him somewhat of an advantage of people that didn’t have this ability. A good friend of Tom’s from Saskatchewen, Dennis Pattinson, called him “Almighty Voice”. That name stuck while he was involved with the CWF. I hope to drop in on Sunday afternoon to say hello to family members.

  3. Hey Scott, Sorry to learn of Tom’s passing. I have lots of good memories of working with Tom in the insolvency biz when I was with Deloitte in Calgary. Tom was super to work with, always got things done and followed up on whatever he said, always fun to work with (lots of good laughs) and, of course, always had strong opinions on most things.

    Best regards and my condolences to you and family
