Tom was born and raised in Aylmer, Ontario and moved to Winnipeg at the age of 20. He worked his entire career at Carte International and retired in 2015. He made long time friends at Carte and still enjoyed attending their annual Christmas Party.
Tom was an active member of the Odd Fellows and Rebekah Association where he held the position of Grand Master for the Jurisdiction of Manitoba. He was a member of Alpha Lodge #92 and Norwood Rebekah Lodge #42. He loved making new friends wherever he went. He also had a passion for music and loved to play the guitar.
