David Charles TOMAS
TOMAS, David Charles - It is with heavy hearts we must announce the passing of David Charles Tomas, on October 15, 2014. Peacefully surrounded by the love of his family, he passed away showing extreme strength and fortitude battling a very aggressive cancer. Dave is lovingly remembered by the families of his parents Charles and Therese Tomas, his wife Leyna Vo, his twin brother John, brother Stephen, sisters Kerry, La Rosa, Missy and Julie. Dave's zest for life is best expressed in the words of poet Sylvia Plath, "I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery - air, mountains, trees, people. I thought 'This is what it is to be happy'" A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 1 p.m. at First Unitarian Congregation, 175 St. Clair Ave. West, Toronto.

To Leyna and all of David's family I am so sorry for your loss.

As well as being classmates at RMC, we were on Armoured Phase II together in Gagetown the summer of 1979. I remember Dave's sense of humour and perpetually positive disposition. We had some laughs together (as we were in the same section) amidst the hard work and long days.
