Thomas worked as a Skidder Operator for E. B. Eddy Forest Products Limited, Forestry Division, for 39 years (1957 – 1997).
He was proud and shared it with his family that he was one of
the KVP bucksaw champions.
In his younger days, Bapaa was an avid baseball player and enjoyed watching baseball on the television in the comfort of his home.  After years of dedicated service with EB Eddy, Thomas and his wife enjoyed travelling afar to visit with family which often included an evening of playing Bingo which became one of his favourite past times.  He would often be seen at the Wiky arena dabbing.
Thomas and his wife worked very hard to provide for their family. They built their first home together which became “home sweet home” to their cherished grandchildren and the perfect gathering place for family. Many birthdays were celebrated at Mamaa and Bapaa’s.
He enjoyed sharing countless stories with his children and grandchildren, recanting life experiences and laughter, sharing of family ties and history. He taught his family what it meant to work hard, to be generous and to take care of your family.

Special visitation at his home residence located at 1379 Kaboni Road, Wikwemikong on Tuesday with visitation also on Wednesday and Thurday at St. Anthony Daniel Church.
Funeral Service Friday, December 19, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. also at

Kaboni Cemetery. Funeral Arrangements entrusted to the
