Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I was sad to see Tom's obituary in The Globe and Mail today. It has been very many years since I have seen Tom, but in 1961 Tom and I were co-captains for the Vincent Massey Trojans when we won the Manitoba High School Basketball Championship. Tom was a natural athlete and a fierce competitor who carried our team on his shoulders. I have many happy memories of the battles we waged together. My condolences to all who knew and loved him.
