Tom R. Harris

 

Tom R. Harris – Visited this earth from June 11, 1946 to April 9, 2021

As the rest of the world mourns the death of Prince Phillip, our small part of the world mourns a man we call Husband, Dad, Ga and Brother. It would take Tom Harris to out RIP a Royal. 

Predeceased by his father Douglas (1970), mother Cecilia (2017), sister Judy (1953), brother Michael, and his beloved dog Hendrix. Survived by his loving wife Teresa Harris. His loving daughters Lesley (Taylor), Lynda (Amanda), and his son Lloyd. Loved by his “other” daughter Crystal Roffel (Doug). A loving Ga to his granddaughter Tristan Renaud. Tommy leaves behind his siblings; Mary -Lou (John), Ann (Jack), Ken (Judy), Tricia, Nancy (Phil), Chris, Gerri (Dan), Maureen (Roch), and Robert. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Our family is forever grateful for the care that Tom has received from his nurses and Drs at Country Village Home. 

A military man to the core, “if you are on time, you are already late”. Family man first and foremost. He always told his kids to have fun but be safe and always carry a quarter in your shoe for a phone call. He loved to play tricks on the ones he loved. Sorry Gram I know he’s up there messing with your Dixie cups. He went holding the hand of the woman he loved to annoy for 47 years and in the presence of his beloved granddaughter. The Toronto Maple #LeafsForever now have their #1 angel fan. Maybe now they will finally take home a cup.

He is loved and will be missed deeply. Please say hi to Hendrix for us.

  4. Tom was a wonderful, kind man. He and Teresa catered my mother-in-law’ (Marion McCormick’s) 80th birthday party. I doubt Queen Elizabeth could have had a more beautiful display of food!

  5. I Love you Dad so much. I’m sad I wasn’t there in person to say goodbye but I’ll be forever grateful that I got to see your face and tell you I love you. I hope that you approved of all the things I did to take care of you. I will watch over mom like a hawk and make she she is taken care of.
