Tom was born in Edmonton and soon after his family moved to Fort St John for 10 years, Kamloops and Williams Lake. He moved to Williams Lake in 1978 with his family at the age of 16 to join the Junior A Williams Lake Mustangs and was the goaltender for a few years where he also found the love of his life Cindy in the process, whom he adored with all his heart. Tom and Cindy grew up together, worked together embarked on a business journey together called “Triple P Sanitation”. Tom loved the work, excelled at it, was passionate about doing his best for his employees and customers alike. In 2013 the business was sold and he enjoyed retirement his way until February 18, 2023.
Tom loved many things, especially the outdoors including camping, snowmobiling, 4 wheeling, downhill skiing, playing Hockey and Fishing. He even seemed to enjoy snow plowing. Tom and Cindy have made the lake their home for 30 years. He was a fish in the water and loved water Skiing, especially in his younger days, which he spent with many family and friends.
Cars and car shows were another favourite of Tom’s and he also enjoyed attending the Barett-Jackson auction in Phoenix Arizona. Tom restored our treasured 1968 Camaro to its custom state and it was his pride and joy.
He loved watching hockey on all the man channels on TV, including Bearing Sea, Goldrush, Deadliest Catch and many more. He loved his pets like a true Dad they loved him dearly.
All these sports, and adventures brought special people into our lives whom we will treasure and be forever grateful for. Thank you for your friendship and Support.
Tom was a quiet man with a twinkle in his eye and a smile like no other, with a great sense of humour. He will be dearly missed!!
