Son-in-law of Gundy and Ann McLeod, much-loved brother (and brother-in-law) of Marlene and Dan, Stephen and Nancy, Mark and Nancy, Julie and Walter, Alix and Bob, and Cam and Moira. He will be fondly remembered by nieces and nephews for his love and advice. Predeceased by his parents, Mary and Alexander Potter of Toronto. Tom will also be missed by family, a wide circle of friends, and by associates and clients of Miller Thomson, all of whom he touched deeply. Memorial service will be conducted Saturday, January 13th at 2 p.m. at St. Mary's (Kerrisdale) Anglican Church, 2490 West 37th Ave. (at Larch), Vancouver. Reception to follow.

I am very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. Although many years have passed since I last saw Tom, he has always been in my heart -- unfortunately the illness is a commonality between our families.

Keep Tom's love and strength close to your heart.
