March 3, 1946 - December 14, 2015
Gillis- Robert Thomas “Tom”
Peacefully at home, surrounded by family, on Monday, December 14th 2015, after a prolonged and courageous battle with cancer.
Beloved husband of Patricia (Girouard). Dear father of Chris (Kyra), Casey (Mike Hutt), and Holly (John McEwen). Loving grandfather to Zachary, Austin, Jack, Morgan, Joseph, Claire, and Samuel. Cherished brother to Ken (Ella), Jean (Al Robinson), Don, and treasured brother-in-law to Catherine (the late Hector Mariuz). He will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews.
Tom was a dedicated public servant, and an avid sportsman with an exceptional competitive spirit.
A long-time member of the Nationview Golf Club, he could regularly be found exploring all corners of the course in search of a lower score, and other players forsaken golf balls. A craftsman of life, his kindness and compassion will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Family and friends are invited to join in a celebration of his life at
Kars Chapel of Tubman Funeral Home
1610 Roger Stevens Dr, Kars
for visitation on Sunday from 2 – 5pm; and a memorial service in the chapel on Monday at 11am. In lieu of flowers donations to the North Gower Volunteer Fire Dept. would be most appreciated by the family.
