WILEY, Thomas Patrick - August 2, 1957 – November 19, 2021
With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our brother and friend Tom Wiley.
Tom's heart unfortunately could not keep up with his joy for life.
Tom graduated from York University with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics in 1983 and moved through a successful 35-year career in the automotive industry with General Motors and Chrysler.
Tom was highly respected throughout his career for his loyalty and work ethic, managing critical logistics functions in the Greater Toronto Area, Detroit and Graz, Austria.
Tom grew up in a very boisterous family of nine in Guildwood, leaving behind his sisters Mary Jo (Peter) and Patty (Brian); his brothers Kelly (Karen), Dave (Diane), Sean (Rhonda) and Kevin. Family and friends were always a big part of Tom's life including his nieces and nephews Emily, David, Mitchell, Abigail and Jenna.
Tom's loving and supportive parents Pat and Teresa (predeceased) provided a wonderful home that generated many laughs, and great memories (many instigated by Tom) for the entire family.
Tom will be remembered by all for his generosity, his booming laugh and the great joy he took in regularly forwarding sometimes funny, but mostly bad, email jokes to his family and friends.
We wish to acknowledge all who share our loss and thank all who contributed to his life including his friends in Niagara on the Lake, across the Greater Toronto Area, Michigan and Florida.
We invite friends and family to join us on Sunday, November 28, 2021 from 10-11 a.m. for visitation followed by a Celebration of -Life Service at 11 a.m. at McDougall & Brown Funeral Home Scarborough Chapel, 2900 Kingston Rd. Friends and family are welcome to share stories and memories of Tom during the service. Please note: For those in attendance at the funeral home proof of vaccination and photo identification is required and masks are required at all times.
Anyone wishing to honour Tom is encouraged to make a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation or the Niagara Health Foundation, in his memory.
