It is with great sorrow that the family announces his passing on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015 at the age of 78 years. Son of the late Edgar and Doris (née Metcalfe) Wright. Predeceased by his wife, Anita Wright (née Daoust) in 2010. Loving father of Bruce (Mireille), Brian (Lisa) and Brent (Stacy). Dear brother of Marie Benson (Keith), Len (Lauretta), Norine Judd (Doug), Mabel Legault (Bob), Francis Crundwell (late Chuck), Dave (Claire) and Jim (Karen). Cherished grandfather of Samantha, David, Holly, Jonathan, Matthieu, Mackenzie, Emma, Carter, Tyler and Jamie-Lynn. Tom was “bigger than life” and will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Tom loved the outdoors and spent much time fishing and hunting. His favourite hobby was challenging his family and friends to a serious game of crib, from which he most often came out the champion.
