It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tom on February 16, 2017, after a lengthy illness.

His working career included finish carpentry and commercial fishing on his boat, MV MAILLE II. In his retirement, he found other passions which included dog training as well as gardening.

Tom is survived by his wife, Lynne, his two sisters, many nieces, nephews, and his four-legged friends, Pepper and Kuma.

Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew him. The care and support from Dr. Phyllips, Dr. Schulson, Dr. Wolfe, Occupational Therapist, Brenda McAlpine, and too many more to list is greatly appreciated.

It was Tom’s request that there be no funeral service. Koden and flowers gratefully declined.
