August 29, 1932 - July 27, 2021
Born in Brandon, long time Winnipeg resident, Tom leaves to mourn his love Daryla; his children Lynn (Alain), Gwen (Tom), Elaine, Bob (Kathy), George (Brenda); 11 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Surviving siblings include Walter (Rita), Helen (Gene), Eddie, Rosemary (Larry), Marjorie (Matt); and sister-in-law Lorraine. Also left is mother of his children DD Belanger.
He was predeceased by grandson Stephen; son-in-law Chuck; infant brother Michael; brother Johnny, and sister Maryanne.
After retirement Tom enjoyed many rounds of golf both here and down south. His passions included his strong faith, family gatherings, cribbage and a good scotch. We will truly miss his delicious Christmas snowballs.
The celebration of Tom's life will take place at a later date.
Special thanks to family, friends and neighbours for their love and support these last several months. Tom was a generous man who believed in sharing, especially with those less fortunate.
Donations may be made to Tom's favourite charity, Society of St. Vincent de Paul through St. Timothy Parish, 135 John Forsyth Road, Winnipeg R2N 1R3.
Tom would like to say that if he failed to meet anyone's expectations, then he sincerely apologizes.
Rest in peace. We will surely miss you.

Of all the men that I met in my life, several through my sister Daryla, Tom was easily my favourite. He was a man's man. He's the only one I will miss. - Posted by: Grant Inglis (Friend) on: Sep 29, 2021
We always enjoyed our visits with Tom and our cousin Dede. Tom’s gentle, kind personality always made us feel welcome. We are honored to make a donation to St. Vincent’s in Tom’s name, as he was a wonderful example to all. Sandy and Glenn Chapman - Posted by: Glenn and Sandy (Cousins) on: Aug 01, 2021
