Thomas Jackson TRIMBLE June 22, 1921 - August 2, 2014 Thomas Jackson Trimble passed away August 2, 2014at the age of 93 in Sidney, BC.

Tom will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 69 years, Constance Winnifred (Babs), his children, Susan (Jim) Banister, Wendy (David) Patton, Tom (Gloria) Trimble, grandchildren Jay (Ann) Banister, Avery and Mark Trimble, Kaitlyn and Alana Patton and great granddaughter, Elle Banister. His two sisters, Shirley Missean and Sharon Gladman. Tom was predeceased by his grandson Matthew Banister. After serving in WWII as an RCAF fighter pilot, Tom returned home with Babs, his beautiful British war bride. He then attended the U of A and graduated in 1950 as a civil engineer. He worked for the Department of Highways Bridge Branch for 18 years and later formed Bolter, Parish, Trimble Consulting Engineers specializing in bridge design. Tom designed the first LRT station in Edmonton and went on to receive a national award for his bridge designs. The bridges he designed throughout Alberta are still in use today.

Tom was a private, gracious and very creative man. What we will miss most is his unique and witty sense of humor. He enjoyed his family and one of his great joys was to make us all laugh. We have many great memories of his hilarious antics! After retiring, Tom and Bab's love of gardening and collecting

antiques took them to Victoria where they have spent the past 31 years in their lovely home overlooking the ocean.
