Tom was predeceased by his brother George and his sisters Nellie (Helen) and Peggy (Margaret). He is survived by his wife Caroline and his sister Bunty (Elizabeth). He will be sadly missed by his children Cheryl (Ordean) Hettervig, Bob (Rose) Scott, Marilyn (Art) Potter, Diane and Gerry, as well as 9 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. The Scott family wishes to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Alfred Chafe and the attending nurses at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
