    My deepest condolences to Tom’s famikly. I had the privilage to work with Tom back in the late 70’s and early 80’s in midtown.

    I also enjoyed visits to Tom’s home when he lived on Strathmore in the Danforth nd Woodbine area. Tom made the best drinks and his favourites was the “Balsdon Swirler”.

    May he rest in peace.

    I just saw the Bell retiree newsletter and learned of Tom’s passing. I was an outside repair technician and I could not count the number of times Tom helped me do my job. The tester job was an important one and Tom was top-notch. He was a lot of fun to work with as he had a great sense of humour. I am sorry to hear this sad news, he was one of the ‘good ones’ as the saying goes. My condolences.
