Passed peacefully at home on September 10th, 2020, age 91. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland May 28th, 1929. Devoted husband of Margaret, his inseparable best friend, for 68 years. They were married in March 1952 and immigrated to Canada a few months later. Without children of their own, they created a loving family of devoted nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, friends and neighbours. Tommy will always be remembered for his quick wit and unending jokes which could bring a smile to anyone’s face. He was a talented musician, singing and playing the accordion and organ in his own band in the 50’s and 60’s and later as a member of the “Westenders” playing all the old tunes at various venues around town. He had an uncanny recollection of dates and numbers and was an absolute whiz at crossword puzzles. His long and varied career took him from the British Army (Royal Engineers) in East Africa where he played soccer and in the band, back to Scotland where he became a master carpenter and then on to Toronto where he became an amazing special education teacher with the North York Board of Education for many years. Always thoughtful and considerate, Tommy was a true gentleman to the end. His keen sense of humour, positive attitude and outlook on life touched the hearts of so many. He will be missed by all. Special thanks to the staff at Care Partners and Dorothy Ley Hospice for their kindness and compassionate care. A celebration of Tommy’s life will be held at a later date.
