Obituary for Tom Sawyer
Tom Sawyer died March 18, 2019
Cancer won the fight.
Tom was born in Clinton, Massachusetts, son of Kenneth and Josephine(Murphy), brother to Judy, Paul, Jerry, Kathy, Sandy and the late Ken and Ritchie Sawyer. He and his sweetheart, Taiya, both attended Hudson High, but never met until forty years later, when Tom visited Nova Scotia with friends Chuck and John. He stayed, he married Taiya, and they had nearly twenty years of happiness together. Everyone who met him felt his warmth, humour, and kindness.
His Wednesday morning pool hall pals cherished him.
He leaves five siblings in Massachusetts, nieces and nephews Lisa, Joanne, Bob, John, Mark, Matthew, Patrick, Colleen, Meaghan, and Kenlyn. His Nova Scotian family includes stepsons Joshua and Silas,
grandchildren Maggie, Jacob and Josh, Kate, and Rosa.
He was loved. He will be missed.
Thanks to Dr Graham, Dr Lori Wood, the chemo nurses, the palliative care team, and our wonderful oncology nurse, Donna.
A service will be held in the lower auditorium of Faith Tabernacle Church, 6225 Summit Street, at 2:00 PM on April 1, 2019.
