Condolences

So very sorry to hear this sad news. I hope there's lots of snow and some tall mountains where you are. Debbe and Bob Smith

Dearest Emily, James and Daniel We were saddened to hear of you Dad's passing, and take comfort in the wonderful memories of the Wentworth Ski Racing days and good times at the "Hill". His love of family was so strong and we got to meet many of your Aunts, Uncles and Cousins, who he would gather in the "Valley of Snow" and would enjoy "cooking up a storm" for everyone. He welcomed everyone into his heart and his home, and would share his pride in a recent accomplishment that you each achieved. Hug each other, and remember the good times. Donna, John and Christian Stringer

Dear Peggy, John, Robert, Mary Louise, Jim, Lisa, Paul and Tom’s children, I was so sorry to hear about Tom’s passing. Another family that was very much inter-twined with the Smith clan. I hope that all of the wonderful memories carry you through this very difficult time. You’re in my thoughts.

Dear Boudreau Family, Not sure how to express my sorrow for Tom's passing. We were friends for over 50 years. So, so many memories come pouring in. Our time in Europe together, Dalhousie, skiing , and wonderful heart to heart chats about our futures, life and the enjoyment of friendships. We will always miss Boudy . Heartfelt sorrow for your loss.

Tom had a special place in my heart, as I always considered him my first boyfriend (if a first kiss does a first boyfriend make!). The Boudreau and Gillis family were intertwined from early days when our mothers became great friends in nursing school, so it was somehow fitting that we all ended up at STA. Tom (or Tommy in those early days) was always smart, talented and funny. Although I hadn’t seen him for several years, I have fond memories of those times when out paths did cross. My very deepest sympathy to the Boudreau family - a heartbreaking loss for you all.

I will always remember Tommy's gusto and vibrant personality. They were great years growing up on Jubilee Road and going to Saint Thomas Aquinas School. Love to all of the family. Chris Lownds

To the Boudreau family. While it has been several year since I last saw Tommy, I have many positive memories from times spent at the Jubilee Road house, the STA church and sharing classrooms at both STA and St Pat's. Tommy always seemed so upbeat and full of energy, ready to catch up and had that twinkle in his eye. Sadly, he has moved on far too early however I am hopeful that he is now in a much better place. Thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time and especially with Tommy and his children. Mike O'Connor

Tom was always fun to be with, as youth or adults. He was justifiably proud of his children. He had a sharp and insightful business mind. He has been and will be missed.

Condolances to family. Tommy was a wonderful guy and I will always remember his ability to laugh and make people feel important with his engaging personality. Rest in peace

To all the Boudreau family I was sad to hear the news of Tommy. I will always remember walking up Jubilee Rd. with Tommy on our way to our separate schools during those carefree formative years. Although I had not seen Tom for many years, when I did run into him on my summer visits he was always eager to share stories of his beloved children. I am thinking of you all at this time.

To all the Boudreau Family: Please accept my deepest sympathy on Tom's passing. I worked with Tom at Nesbitt Thomson Bongard years ago and also played a bit of golf with he and Jimmy during that time period. Days of going to Ken-Wo very early on a Saturday morning where we always had fun and many laughs. Tom truly was "hail fellow well met" if there ever was one. Always enjoyed his company. Played a little with him a few years ago at Old Ashburn as well, and always had a side bet going which we both got a charge out of.He and I will never forget the infamous, bingo bango bongo. Never a quitter,and always smiling when he saw you,he always came over to say hello to me wherever and whenever he ran into me. I haven't seen him for a few years,but that was what I really admired about Tom-he never forgot you, no matter what! May God Bless You in your hour of sorrow,and May God Love Tom as much as you all did! Sincerely, Frank Hiscock.
