Betty-Ann, I was so very sorry to find out about Tom's passing -- I just heard about it today. I had not seen him for many years. We had a great time catching up when we bumped into each other in the St Lawrence Market in Toronto back in the late 1980s. He was such a decent person. I am so very sorry for your loss.

I started my career in engineering as his Project Administrator in 2001. He was always kind and willing to give me advice over the years. He is missed and will not be forgotten.

Words fail me for once......a gentleman, a scholar, a brilliant engineer, a people person....a guiding light and more importantly an open, honest, un-pc friend....he had it all. There are no words! I was priviledged to be your friend Thomas!

I only just learnt of this today from Alan Wong, also ex Encana....words fail me! Thomas was a brilliant colleague and an even better friend. The world is a worse place without him....I am deeply saddened, lost, broken. Thomas was the finest of men, a superb individual. Sadly there are NO words! RIP Thomas my friend...I was priviledged to know you!

I have just learned of Thomas's passing yesterday via an email from one of his friends, as I am working overseas. I am very saddened and deeply moved to hear this news and will dearly miss a dear close friend. I give my sincere condolences to Thomas's sister and extended family. He often talked a lot of his immediate family and I admired his dedication to them.

I would like to express some words as briefly as possible, feeling very bad for not knowing of this recent event and not being able to attend the services.

Thomas and I met as EIT's (engineering trainee's) which was my first job after University at Novas Gas (now Transcanada) in 1986. Since the first moment we got on very well and have been friends since. Thomas was one of the best engineers I knew and he had integrity above anyone I have known in my career. He never backed down from what he felt was right and I admired him for this greatly. We started our careers together and spent a lot of time at work and outside work in the early days. We did a lot of cycling, squash and hiking and also some travelling. As our careers diverged we always kept in touch and he traveled and visited me many times overseas, either to see me directly or if he happened to be in the neighborhood when he was working overseas; in Malaysia and SE Asia. We also went on trips in the region as he loved travel and exploring. He truly helped me through some very difficult times especially during this period. He was the one person I knew that was there if I ever needed help.

We spent a lot of time together in the last year or two before I left to Kuwait and afterwards we kept in frequent contact, face-timing every few weeks. Most recently was spending time together this May and June when I was back for a visit. I will greatly miss him and will always remember what a great person and such a good friend he was.

It is a great loss and my thoughts are about him and for Thomas's extended family.

Thomas was one of the most professional, understanding, encouraging and honest people I have ever worked with in the oil & gas industry.

Thomas will be missed by everyone that had the pleasure of running into him on this journey we call life.

In thought & prayer,

My sincere condolences to Betty Ann and Tom's extended family. Tom and I were grade school classmates, friends and played in his father's band. Tom's pursuit of excellence was evident from an early age. Tom inspired many to try harder and do better. The world has lost a great individual. RIP my friend!

I am saddened to hear of Thomas's passing, Thomas brought me under his wing and helped me succeed in oil and gas. His dedication to excellence and achieving the highest standard in his work and instilling that framework with all that he worked with is not overstated. You will be missed as your time came way too soon.
