Tom was a true gentleman, and I remember our days together at Queen's University and when we would chat at the Immigration and Refugee Board. He will be missed, and I extend my condolences and very best wishes to his family. Richard Desrocher

I haven't seen Tom in several decades he was my first cousin on my mother's side of the family (Koula Lakas ne Leousis) and was surprised to hear of his passing. He studied law with a passion and excelled at it. As youngsters our families would travel to Caledonia and swim in the Grand River. However as fate would have it, we grew apart which is common to some families for any number of reasons. Upon hearing of his death of course a flash memory of past times shared came to mind which always broadened our view of family relationships. Many forget about the passage of time in their business of life and this is regrettable. On behalf of my Mom and I, we extend our sympathy to Chris and Helen and their family. May Tom find peace in in the universe, as I don't think he'll be resting much.
