BROWN, Thomas Walter “Tom”

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Tom Brown passed away peacefully on Friday, October 13th.  He was surrounded by his family, and we showered him in love while we listened to Let It Be by the Beatles.

He was a kind, caring, compassionate, selfless, hard working, generous, hilarious and quirky man. His kindness and gentle nature made him a favorite brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin, pseudo father and a friend to many. His gentle nature drew people to him.  He leaves a giant hole in our lives and we are all devastated that we have had to say goodbye so early.  Tom was the owner of Simcoe Landscaping for 31 years and was known for his honesty, professionalism and strong work ethic; his clients respected and trusted him.  His wife Mary has lost her best friend, her love, her confidante and soul mate who still made her laugh after 42 years. They had a wonderful life together.  His children, Alex and Carolyn meant the world to him, and he was so proud of their accomplishments. The life lessons he taught them shaped their personalities, he showed them by example to not take themselves too seriously, to be honest, to laugh, to be kind, to enjoy work and not to judge.  They will miss him forever.

His family and friends are invited to a Celebration of a Life Well Lived on Saturday, October 21st at the family home, starting at 1 pm. Friends and family will be received, followed by a memorial service at 2:00 pm.  Knowing that Tom loved his work, and took great satisfaction in the fact that his clients enjoyed the fruits of his labour – we will be planting trees and placing a park bench for the citizens of Barrie to enjoy. This is a memorial program that the City of Barrie has created. We believe that with Tom’s line of work and his caring nature, it would be a lasting tribute.   If you wish to donate, you can go on line to:

https://www.gofundme.com/tom-brown-memorial-trees-bench

All funds will go towards the purchase of trees and a bench.  Any leftover funds will go to the Humane Society to honor how much he loved animals.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca

On September 22, 2017, Darcy Lucas, 47, of Barrie, ON, left this world the same way he came into it: kicking & screaming, on his own terms, and before his time.  He refused to give in to cancer and kept a positive outlook throughout his battle.
