Born in Neil’s Harbour, he was the son of the late Hubert and Alice (Strickland) Williams.
Tommy managed the Cooperators store in Neil’s Harbour for 25 years and retired in 1992. Tommy loved life and telling stories about the history of Neil’s Harbour and Cape Breton Island. He was full of devilment and tomfoolery, cracking jokes and singing his own “made up” funny tunes and jingles that made us all laugh.

Tommy was predeceased by his daughter, Willena (Williams) Blundon; father, Hubert Williams; mother, Alice (Strickland); brothers, John, Wilbert, Owen and Stewart; sisters, Dorothy, Elizabeth, Ellen, Phyllis, Marion, and Shirley.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday 8, 2017 of May at the St Joseph’s Church in Dingwall, Cape Breton.
