Peacefully at home Friday, June 3, 2005 at age 76. Born in Hamilton, the only child of the late T. Reginald SLOAN and Mildred SHEERER. Mentor and dear companion to wife Margaret, loving father of Maureen (Wil), grandad to David, Aylssa, and Nicole. Tom graduated from University of Toronto with a M.A. in Philosophy, travelled and studied in Paris and London during his early twenties. He then spent the next 40 years in journalism and teaching, and a friend once described him as a Renaissance man. Tom's good nature and humour, his love of languages, travel, and Wagnerian opera, the fun he had writing puns, his interests in history, journalism, politics, and international affairs made him one of a kind. He was so knowledgeable and right to the end was concerned for social justice. The other love of his life was his beloved Tiger Cats, whom he never abandoned. Many thanks to Dr. Susan WILKINSON for many years of dedicated care and to Dr. Louise COULOMBE for giving him peace of mind and quality of life. To Sandra BOYD for her thoughtfulness and nursing care. Thanks to Chantal of the Ottawa Public Library's Visiting Services, to Peter for the weekly phone chats, and to Brian for the Sunday afternoon visits. At Tom's request, there will be no visitation or funeral.

I Remember -- Tom SLOAN
By George TODD, Wednesday, June 22, 2005, Page S9
George TODD of Guelph, Ontario, writes about Tom SLOAN, whose obituary appeared on June 9.
Tom and I lived together when we were reporters at the Welland Tribune; he covered the county beat, and I did the city -- two guys with M. As in philosophy and a finger on the political pulse. We got to know each other well. Tom was cantankerous, rebellious and iconoclastic. As it happened, he was assigned to cover a royal visitor to Niagara Falls. I believe it was Princess Anne. The Trib's managing editor, Tommy MORRISON, was a fine newspaperman with otherwise good judgment. This, however, was a mistake.
Tom, a hard-line republican, was fit to be tied. He stormed around our crummy flat above a service station, cursing royalty roundly, before dutifully setting out. Late that Sunday afternoon, I received a worried call from a junior editor. Tom was long overdue. Knowing Tom, I set off for the Falls to find him. As I was coming into Lundy's Lane, I detected a tiny speck in the distance, dancing haphazardly beside the road. It was Tom, staggering along, drunk as the Lord.
I stopped to get him into the car. He was having none of it. He was bloody well walking to Welland and bloody well going to write his story. I persevered, and he did come around but, nonetheless, cursed me all the way home. I took no offence. Only those Tom really cared for got cursed in that fashion. I took him home and put him to bed. But I didn't leave him there to sleep it off. After a few hours, I got him up and delivered him to the office. The story came out. To the unknowing eye, it was a straight account. But the knowing eye could detect the innuendo dripping from every sentence.
We got together often after he moved to The Globe, usually winding up in some kind of hellery. Tom was best man at my wedding but, after he moved east, we saw less of each other and eventually lost contact.

SLOAN, Lt. Col. James Robert (R)
Peacefully, on October 26, 2005, Jim Sloan entered his eternal rest from St. Michael's Hospital at the age of 90. The man who touched many lives through his ministry will be missed by all with whom he came in contact for his gentle touch and wonderful, positive outlook on life.

He will be lovingly remembered by his son Ron and wife Jeannie, his son Ken and wife Rosemary, and grandchildren Kendra MARTONE and husband Mick, Shawn and wife Stephanie, Michael and David SLOAN, and great grandchildren Moriah, Aleah, Jonathan and Elliana.

In his late teens, he moved to Toronto and for a brief time worked at the T Eaton Company. However, at the age of 19 he found his calling and entered the Salvation Army Training College for Officers. A year later he began what would turn out to be 45 years of service with the Salvation Army. For the first 8 years he was a single officer, until in 1943 he married the former Grace TUTTE and they continued serving together for 37 years.

In the latter part of their career, they were appointed to lead the Army's work in Singapore and Malaysia.

He spent many years during his retirement as the Visiting Pastor for the North Toronto Salvation Ar my Corps ministering to the sick and shut in.
