Brother to Richard (Dick) and Margaret (Peggy) of London, Ontario. Tom passed away peacefully with trademark grace after a long battle with cancer and Parkinson's disease. Raised in London, Ontario, he distinguished himself early in his academic career, winning several gold medals in high school and serving as president of the students' council. He was involved in the Scouting movement for many years, ultimately becoming a Rover Scout. 'Service', the motto of Scouting, guided him all his life. Tom developed an early love of music, which gave him lifelong enjoyment. He played trumpet in the high school orchestra and the University of Western Ontario Mustang Marching Band and in 'big band' and 'combo' dance bands. He sang in high school and university choirs and was a church choir member for most of his life. If there were a sing-song underway at a party, Tom would be there harmonizing. After retirement, Tom enjoyed a dozen years as a member of the Amadeus Choir. His other favourite leisure pastime was sailing - racing or cruising with family and Friends on Lake Ontario and in the Caribbean. Tom graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1951 with an Honours B.A. in Business Administration and began his career with the London Office of the firm of Clarkson Gordon (now Ernst and Young). He became a Chartered Accountant in 1954 and moved to the Toronto Office in 1958. He was made a partner of the firm in 1960 and in 1977 opened a Metro East office in Scarborough. He continued as Office Managing Partner until two years before his retirement in 1989. Tom developed an expertise in accounting for the Insurance industry and promoted cooperation between accountants and actuaries. In 1973, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario recognized his contribution to the profession by awarding him the designation FCA - Fellow of the Institute. Throughout his professional career, Tom continued to devote himself to community leadership and service. So many organizations benefited from his leadership, including National Ballet of Canada and the National Ballet School, Children's Aid Society and Foundation, Child Welfare League of America, Canadian Child Welfare Association, Scarborough Centenary Hospital and Foundation, Arts Etobicoke, Scarborough Arts Council, The Boulevard Club, Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club, Toronto Board of Trade, Scarborough Chamber of Commerce, Anglican Church of Canada and Diocese of Toronto, Scarborough College at University of Toronto, and Etobicoke Services for Seniors.
