Tom will be lovingly remembered by his wife Erna; one son, Scott (Nataly) Flood of Vernon, B.C.; one daughter, Diana (Rick) Corak of Kimberley, B.C.; four grandchildren, Tyler (Maris) of Vancouver, B.C., Ashley (Trevor) of Vernon, B.C., Katlyn (Josh) of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia and Steven (Krista) of Fernie, B.C.; Erna’s sons, Bob, Bruce, Brian (Shannon) and their families; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Doreen; and two sisters, Isabel Erwin and Dawna Colson.
Tom was a man whose life was centered around his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He dearly loved his grandchildren and spent as much quality time with them as possible. Tom was a faithful employee of both Ontario and BC Hydro for over 45 years combined and was well respected by others in this, his chosen profession. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed time spent with good friends around a roaring campfire.
