Thomas Ainsworth Whitmore

December 21, 1923 - June 10, 2012


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Thomas Ainsworth Whitmore on Sunday June 10, 2012 at Castleview Care Hospital.
Tom was born December 21st, 1923 in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. He was the last survivor of 7 siblings. He met his to be wife Dorothy Paysen in Moose Jaw where they married May 14, 1949. He came to British Columbia in 1953 with his wife and then two small children, Carol and Allen. In 1962, and after the birth of two more children, Janice and Brian, moved to North Bend, BC and then moved to Calgary, Alberta in 1963. Tom’s love of the outdoors resulted in him accepting yet another move with the Canadian Pacific Railway back to Nelson in 1968 where soon after, Wayne, the fifth and final child was born.
After attending Moose Jaw’s Technical School, Tom went to the CPR where he spent 42 years working as either an electrician or electrical foreman before retiring in 1980. His electrical career has passed on to sons and grandsons.
His family was his world and his wife of 63 years was the love of his life. Tom‘s free hours were spent with family and friends in the outdoors either camping, fishing or hunting. His love of gardening kept his family in fresh vegetables and fruit wherever they lived.
Tom will be sadly missed by his wife Dorothy, daughters Carol (Bill), Janice (Sid), and three sons Allen (Diane), Brian (Barb), and Wayne (Barb) and his 10 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
