ADAMS, Thomas Philip Adams - Obituary | Print |

ADAMS, Thomas Philip -

Adams_TomThe family of Thomas Philip Adams is sad to announce his death at age 82 on May 22, 2015 in Midland, Ontario.

Philip is survived by his beloved wife Nancy Adams (Lecour), his four children, Louise Adams (Steven Karrys), Jennifer Adams (Randall Wilson), Tom Adams (Laura Adams), Kathryn Adams (Patrick Collins), his special niece Mary Jane Grant and her son Riley Quinn.

He leaves behind 8 fantastic grandchildren, Lauren & Andrea Karrys, Nolan & Liam Wilson, Hilary & Mitchell Adams and Owen & Adrienne Collins.

Philip will be deeply missed by his sister Marjorie Burns, many nieces and nephews, and countless friends.

Philip was born on September 7, 1932 in Windsor, Nova Scotia. He spent his early years moving around Canada as his father took up various positions at the Bank of Nova Scotia. Philip graduated from the Royal Military College and the University of Toronto. Most of his professional career was spent working with the Ontario Public Service. Philip was instrumental in the development of important social programs such as OHIP. As Assistant Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Colleges & Universities, he was a leader in the creation of Ontario’s community college system.

After retirement Philip and Nancy moved to Midland where they began another chapter. They enjoyed their gardens, bridge club, curling and travels to many parts of the world. Philip continued in service to his community, as Founding Chair of the Simcoe County Community Care Access Center and as Chair of the Historical and Heritage Committee for the Township of Tiny. He also took time to author two books on Huronia history.

Philip was known for his gregarious nature, his razor sharp intellect and his ability to devour a seemingly infinite number of books. He was an unwavering supporter of the Toronto Argonauts and an enormously proud Canadian. His greatest love was for his family of whom he was immensely proud.

A funeral mass will take place on Wed. May 27 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Margaret’s Catholic Church, 589 Hugel Avenue, Midland ON. A reception will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
