Lynn Thomas (Tom) Devonald
March 5,1946 - May 19,2021
It is with great sadness, his family announce the passing of Tom, cherished husband for 55 happy years of Lilian (Sutherland/Twist) Loving Dad of Philip Devonald(Michelle), Andrea Rintoul(Bob) Very proud Grandad of Bradley Rintoul and Ryan Rintoul. Survived by his dear sisters, Wendy and Lorraine and dear brother Paul. Predeceased by his parents Tom and Ada (Foxen) Devonald.
A special thank you to the ER department at the Queensway Carleton Hospital together with Dr Rebekah Murphy, Nurses, Chris, Jenny, Stephanie, Izzy and the rest of the team for their wonderful care.
Tom was born in Barrow-In-Furness, England and came to Canada in 1978. He was a life long supporter of Manchester City and Barrow A.F.C. He loved watching all sports especially those in which his children and grandchildren were involved. "Good game Grandad!"
Tom was also a huge animal lover and is missed by his crazy cat, Thunder.
Our loss will leave a hole in our hearts but as a family we will be strong together following his lead. For a man of few words, he made a lasting impression on everyone who was lucky enough to meet him.
At Tom's request there will be no service, just family and we will honour his wishes by returning his ashes to his beloved England to be scattered in the Irish Sea off Walney Island. Thus, when we glimpse the sea anywhere on our travels, we will feel him in our hearts. His wish is for friends and family to donate in his honour to The Heart and Stroke Foundation and / or the Ottawa Humane Society.
We will miss you dearly. God now has you in his arms, but you will be forever in our hearts.
