Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • I am sad to hear that Sim (Tom) has passed away. I have good memories of listening to him sing his latest favorite tunes as we walked around Pinawa as kids. And of course singing with the Fender Benders! A long time ago!! Still good memories. Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

  • My condolences to Tom's family and loved ones. I looked up to Tom as an artist and friend. He was a tremendous songwriter who delivered his passion like a master craftsman. We would play coffee houses like Gordie's Cafe or Joe Blacks. Tom's songs really hit home with people, selling every album he brought with him. Watching Tom play I often had the feeling I was in the presence of greatness, a feeling like having John Lennon play 5 feet in front of you. I will never forget those performances. This Nation and music has lost a great treasure, but I have been blessed to know him. Farewell my friend. Yours very truly, With highest regards, Shayne Lewis - Posted by: Shayne Lewis (Friend) on: Mar 09, 2021

  • It was with great shock and sadness to read Tom had passed away. I knew Tom as a Busker at The Forks Market. I didn't know him well, but I could almost always count on him to show up early in the morning his voice and guitar playing echoing throughout the Market. A very talented musician singing and playing all the hits. He would always take a minute to chat and was happy to play a song for you if he knew it, and he knew a lot of songs. He will be missed, but his voice and the people he touched with it will last forever. Thanks for spreading some joy. Condolences to the family. - Posted by: Julene Gravett (friend) on: Feb 25, 2021

  • Tom Dunlop, Fender Bender, friend. It was painfully sad to hear that you have left us … no doubt with guitar in hand. You were one of a kind. I shall remember fondly the year and a half that we (Tom, Dunny, aka: Dwight, and I) spent in the little house in St. Boniface in the late 70’s. The basement immediately became Tom’s studio, and he would spend hours in that studio between gigs. Tom was the older brother I didn’t have, a great musician and all around cool dude. I will miss those days, the laughter, the goofy sayings, your wit, and your cynical sense of humour. Those were good times old buddy and I will always be thankful for that. RIP Tommy 2 shoes, keep on rockin! - Posted by: Keith Gauthier (Friend) on: Feb 20, 2021
