Tom ventured to Huntsville, after spending many years in Nova Scotia. Through his love of garage
sales, auctions, and antiques, Tom began the Remember When Antique & Auction Barn, where he
was able to broaden his knowledge of old furniture, priceless china and crystal.
With his love of books, Tom developed an impressive library of hard cover books, which he
enjoyed reading and losing himself in his favorite “book of the day”.
He enjoyed capturing nature through his in depth love of photography, providing a collection of
photos from here to Nova Scotia, that included several other locations that he has visited during
his time with a camera.
His mastery of sarcastic wit and story telling always left a smile, and will become a much loved
memory for his family and friends.
Tom found comfort and peace, in his faith and belief of the bible studies with the Jehovah Witness.
Where he developed long lasting and cherished friendships that lasted through his final days.
As per Tom’s wishes:
Cremation has taken place. A family service will be held in North River, Nova Scotia at a later date.
