Thomas Earl MacLeod 1932 — 2018

                                                            June 17, 1932 – October 6, 2018

            The family of Thomas Earl MacLeod announces that a wonderful Great-Grandfather, Grandfather, Father, and Husband has passed away. On Saturday, October 6, 2018 Earl left us to be with his beloved wife Margie forever more. Thank-you to the Royal  Inland 6th Floor staff, and everyone at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice. Your kind and tender care during Dad’s last days is greatly appreciated. Our Dad was a devout Catholic and his services were exactly as he would have wished for, thank-you to Father Paul, the OLPH congregation and everyone who joined us at the church for making his send-off to heaven so peaceful and “correct” as Earl would have said.

The mould was surely broken when Dad was created. He was a fantastic “Old Guy” and “Grampy” to his Grandchildren and his Great-Grandchildren. So many memories of the cabin, fishing and stories from Cape Breton will live in them for all their days. He met, then quickly fell in love, and married Margie in Cape Breton on May 1, 1954.  She captured his heart and soul from their first dance and we know they’re dancing together again, to “Harvest Moon.”

Earl and Margie bravely moved their family from Cape Breton to Kamloops in 1969.  His work friends, and employers from Hasler’s Redi-mix to Weyerhaeuser and his neighbours from Ivy Avenue, will remember a man of stature both physically and in his great sense of humour that was shared with everyone he came in contact with.

Earl will be missed and lovingly remembered.

Your jobs were done Dad, dance with peace and joy.

    I am so sorry to hear of Earl’s passing. I had the privilege and honour to know him and work along side of him for the last years before he retired from the pulp mill. He truly was an incredible, highly principled, gentleman, in both senses of the word. He spent many hours regaling us all with the stories of all his children, whom he was extremely proud of, and it was easy to tell that Margie was the apple of his eye.
    I’m sure he will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him.

    Please accept our condolences on the passing of your father Earl. He was a giant of a man, yet so gentle and kind. He and Margie were the best of neighbours and we appreciate both of them. Our prayers are with you all.
