Debbie, You have our deepest sympathies. We have known Tom since moving in to Fonthill in 1994. I shot a lot of pool at the local establishment with Tom, Max and friends. Win or lose, Tom always had a wonderful smirky smile. We always had a lot of fun. Again, Debbie and Max, you have our deepest condolences from, Ernie and Charlotte.

My deepest condolences to Tom’s family. It brings me back to our old Welland Minor Hockey days. We played together on several select teams. Also, Industrial hockey days. He was a great hockey player! Great team mate! Rest in peace my friend.

I was golfing with Tom when he had his hole-in-one at the Fox Run Golf Course a few years ago. I won’t tell you how far the hole was, but it wasn’t exactly the longest one ( I think he used his putter, lol ). It’s time to remember all of the good times, and thanks for those Tom. Rest in peace Sir Thomas, your longtime friend , Brett ( Hitman)

Debbie and Max our love and support are with you , always
