Thomas Eaton Sprague October 23, 1947 - June 20, 2012
The Guest Book is expired.
Thom passed suddenly on June 20th, 2012 surrounded by his family at Ridge Meadows Hospital. He will be missed dearly by his wife Dwaina; his children Tyla (Kevin), Bianca, Elliott (Danielle), Molly (Peter); and his grandchildren Benjamin and Graydon. The son of Kloman and Madeline Sprague, Thom was born on October 23, 1947 in Windsor, Ontario, where he grew up with his siblings Allison, Douglas, Mary and Peter. He was an alumnus of the University of Windsor.
The loss of Thom will be felt deeply by his family, friends, clients and community. A lawyer for over 30 years in the Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam area, Thom treated every client like a close friend, serving them with compassion and respect. His love for life and the joy he derived from it were evident in everything he did, whether it was hitting the road on his motorcycle, running, taking thousands of photos of his family or simply working outside on his property, building, burning and chopping down things.
A memorial service celebrating Thom's life will be held on Wednesday, June 27 at 4 PM at the SFU Diamond Alumni Centre, located at 8888 University Drive in Burnaby (free parking in Lot C). There will also be an intimate gathering of family and close friends on Tuesday, June 26 from 3-6pm at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel at 11765 224th Street in Maple Ridge.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. For more information, please refer to http://www.facebook.com/RememberingThomasSprague.
