Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020 at Lakeridge Health Hospital (Oshawa) in his 81st year.
Beloved Husband to Maura (nee Mangan) for 50 incredible years.
Wonderful loving father to Barry and Brendan (Faith).
Super Grampy to his amazing granddaughter Lumїna.
Cherished brother to Lilly (Allister), Una (Sean deceased), Ann (Martin), Peter (Heather), John (Marie) and Jim (Sandra).
Will be fondly remembered as Uncle Noel by his many loved nieces and nephews in England and Ireland.
Predeceased by parents Thomas Lawless (Dublin) and Elizabeth (nee Fitzpatrick) (Dublin) and sister Trish (Fred) Lee (Dublin).
Born in Dublin Ireland and emigrated to Canada in 1967. Known as Tommy to his friends, he was a Steamfitter by trade and loyal member of UA Local 46. Soft spoken with a heart of gold. An aviation enthusiast and talented man.
His gentle voice will be remembered caressing the notes from his twelve-string to the tapping of his slippered feet. His wit and intelligence are enshrined in his many writings, and the expression of his kind soul will be relived in his drawings.
His annual monologue of ‘Christmas in the workhouse’ will be sorely missed. He was a man of great guts!
If desired, donations would be appreciated to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
