Thomas was a very dedicated bus driver who worked for Martin’s bus lines in Napanee, ON he absolutely loved working there and loved his kids that he drove on the bus. Thomas was a very loving, gentle, hard working, generous, honest man. He loved having coffee with his friends in Napanee, devoted to God including churches from Napanee to Cochrane and all the friends he had made. He helped a lot of people in need. Most of all loved his wife Donna, most important was family to him; he loved us all more than we’ll ever know….
