RICHARDS, Thomas Alan Richards - Obituary | Print |

RICHARDS, Thomas Alan -

Richards_TomIn Collingwood ON., on June 11, 2014, age 63.

Dear son of Alan and the late Eunice Richards (2009). Loving and loved brother of Ann, Jamie (Lindsay), Sheila (Bill Williams) and the late Beth Richards (1969). Caring uncle to Jay Richards, Ben, Greg and Jackie Williams.

Born in Toronto, Tom lived his younger years in Regina, Saskatchewan. When he was ten, the family moved back to Toronto. Each summer of his life he spent some time at the family cottage in the Bay of Islands, Northern Georgian Bay. He was very interested in the First Nations communities of Canada. Tom attended Trinity College School and graduated from York University with a combined honors degree in economics and anthropology. Tom travelled to Japan on a student exchange at the University of Tokyo, where his love for the country soon developed. He became proficient in Japanese culture and language; speaking, reading and writing fluently in Japanese. He returned to Japan and travelled abroad several times. Tom travelled to many parts of the world often experiencing the less exotic parts of the countries he visited. He loved the challenges of living in and with communities that were less fortunate and more real.

Tom taught ESL in Japan, Turkey and Poland. He completed a two season solo canoe trip from Collingwood to the North Channel of Lake Huron two years ago. Tom's experiences both at home and abroad provided him with a foundation of spiriruality and morals by which he lived his life. He studied ancient civilizations and wrote deep and thought-provoking stories and poetry about life. He posted a blog with his writing in the last year of his life.

His character was complex. He was stubborn and determined and had a beautiful sense of humor. He was tenacious and a perfectionist. He was a woodworker and handyman. He charmed his caregivers and volunteers, even when not feeling well. Thank you, David. He made friends around the world. When Tom was your friend he cared deeply for you. His spiritual connection with Buddhism ultimately provided solace through his devastating journey with ALS.

Thank you Suma, Taz and Helen.

From beginning to end, Tom's thinking prompted him to wonder and question, propose and discuss, wander and seek answers to questions few of us would consider or contemplate. He was as comfortable discussing the science of physics as he was discussing the language, arts, culture, religion and history of Canada and the world. He taught us about life and its beauty, and death and its mystery. He was always a kind and gentle soul. We miss him, but he has left a legacy far greater than his humility would allow him to comprehend or acknowledge.

Thank you to the wonderful nurses and PSWs of CCAC and St. Elizabeth Collingwood, and to Sunset Manor staff, who all did their very best to comfort and care for Tom. Thank you Sarah, with the ALS Society, who was instrumental in helping Tom and his family navigate the system and supports that were made available to him. Dr. Houston, thank you.

A service of remembrance will be held on Saturday June 14th in Collingwood ON, followed by a reception.

Donations in Tom's memory may be made to ALS Ontario.

The following was inscribed in a book given to Tom by his maternal grandmother, Nania, in July 1969. She obviously knew Tom well.

To Dear Tom
"Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime
and departing, leave behind us,
Footprints on the sands of time."
A Psalm of Life, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1838.
