THOMAS, David Michael Osborne -   "Express Condolences"

Thomas_DavidMay 10, 1929 - August 13, 2014

It is with enormous sadness that we announce the passing of David Thomas on Wednesday, August 13, 2014.

He left us in the same way he lived his life, quietly and gently in the late afternoon.

David was the middle child of the late Edna and Harold Thomas and the beloved brother of Noel (Carol) and Sonya (late Glen). Brock, J. Willie, Laurie and Glenna will remember him as a wonderful mentor and role model. He loved his role as uncle to the Thomas and Munro clans. He was a constant support as a brother-in-law to Tricia's family and was a steadfast friend to many. David's listening and problem solving skills, together with his patience, empathy and understanding were the reasons for his success in the educational field, serving as a teacher, a math consultant and principal in the East York School District for many years.

Taking early retirement, he turned his talents to hobby farming, spending many wonderful years as the master of Pinehaven, a tree farm in Omemee. Our gentle guy enjoyed 84 active and fulfilling years, 34 of which he spent with his soul mate and best pal Tricia.

David was a longtime member of the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club and Mayfair Lakeshore Racquet Club and spent many, many hours on the fairways of Parkview Golf Club.

However, his heart belonged in The Beach and so we ask all who knew and loved this gentle, lovely man to join us for a Celebration of his Life on Thursday, September 4th at the Balmy Beach Club (the foot of Beech Avenue) from 2 - 4 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made in memory of David to Toronto East General Hospital's Oncology Department foundation.tegh.on.ca or Myeloma Canada.
