PEAT - Thomas David F/L. R.C.A.F. Retired, age 86.
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, who was born in Asquith, Saskatchewan on Jan. 12, 1918 to David Peat and Alice Mather. He passed away suddenly on Feb 23, 2004 at Lions Gate Hospital. Tom leaves behind his loving wife of 58 plus years, Dorothy (Berrington), daughters Barbara Glaspey (Danny), Julie Johnston (Bill), son David (Roby) and daughter-in-law Valorie; his 7 grandchildren, Michael Vargas (Cheryl), Elisha Legault (Travis), Anita, Derek and Tara Peat, Scott and Christie Johnston, new twin great-granddaughters, Daycie and Kaylee Legault, his brother-in-law, Bill Berrington (Betty) and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father and mother, and 5 sisters, Lorena Heath, Nell Thomas, Dorothy Forsyth, Betty and Bea Peat. Tom was a proud member of the RCAF. During the war he was a Flying Instructor, and during peacetime, was with 419 AWF Sqn. In Germany, he was O.C. of Wing Instrument Flight at No. 3 Wing, and then an Air Traffic Controller . He retired in 1964 and moved to Flesherton Ontario, where he worked as Business Administrator for the Flesherton District School Board, and later as Superintendent of Special Services when the Grey County Board of Education was formed. Tom loved nothing more than spending time with his family and regaling us with stories and poems and songs of his childhood growing up farming on the prairies during the Depression and the trials of being the only male in a house with 5 sisters. He was a tower of strength to his family and his indomitable spirit especially through the last few years of his life when he faced serious medical problems is an inspiration to us all. As children, even now, we always knew we could turn to him and ' Daddy could fix anything'. Tom was proud of his family, faithful to his friends, and will always be remembered as a man of integrity, honesty, and a true gentleman. He will be greatly missed by his family who adored him. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, March 6th at St. Andrew's United Church, 1044 St. George's Ave., North Vancouver, at 2:00 p.m. SPECIAL THANKS TO DR. E. KROLL AND REV. MARIANNA HARRIS.
