Tom Downie Black

Born January 10, 1935 in Aberdeenshire Scotland, surrounded by his loving family Tom passed away at Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace, B.C. on January 2, 2014. He was predeceased by his parents, one sister and three brothers. He is survived by his loving wife, Robin, of fifty three years, his daughters; Renee Barnard (Peter Olsson); Audrey (Calvin Kerr); and Jo (Will van Randen), four grandchildren; Laura, Garrett, Cameron and Kimberly. He is survived by two brothers, three sisters, five sisters-in-law, one brother-in-law, and many nieces & nephews both in Canada and Scotland.

He lived a very happy, full and diverse life and touched the lives of so many people. He loved Canada from the day he arrived here in 1952, but especially loved the North where he spent most of his life. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

We would like to thank Dr. Lennox Brown & Nicole; Elaina and Adam and all the nurses at Mills Memorial Hospital, the Community Health nurses and Ingrid at Shoppers Pharmacy.

Donations in Tom’s memory can be made to the Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation at 4720 Haugland Avenue Terrace BC V8G 2W7. To honour Tom’s wishes, no service will be held.
