LONGEST SERVING MEMBER of the ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION BRANCH 92
Tom has been a loyal and dedicated Legionnaire for 74 years
WWII veteran Thomas, Howard, Arlington, Tindal:
Birthday 12 January
Tom enjoyed three-handed Euchre on his 95th Birthday, with his two, daughters Deborah and Susan.
Youngest daughter, Susan, is Tom's wonderful, primary caregiver.
Tom is all smiles as he gets ready to enjoy his homemade birthday cake.
This picture marks Tom's 70 years with RCL Br. 92 in Gananoque, presenting his 70 pin and award was Anne Parker Membership Chair, beside Tom is Comrade Murray Salter and then Comrade Owen Fitzgerald.
Tom's daughter Deborah wrote: "The Crowd Roars.....and Bobby Scores!".... Every Birthday, we pull out one of Dad's favourite, musical Birthday cards, which is a recording of Stompin' Tom's "The Hockey Song", which he'll delight in playing and listening to, many times, .... til next year's B'day.
Deborah writes; Dad has short term memory loss, but his mind becomes very keen, when we play our familiar, family board games with him often, as we can. Our Grandmother Tindal, (whom I share the same B'day) from Morrisburg, gave us the Crokinole board game one Christmas, long ago, when we were kids, that we still play on, today.
Dad still has his cheery disposition, good temperament and sense of humour and says to us every time we see him, that he's, "very proud to have a number one son, Michael, and two daughters, Deborah and Susan." He says he "misses his wife Ruth", (Mom). Dad has three, lovely, grandchildren and twin, great grandkids.
