He was pre­de­ceased by his par­ents Ge­orge and Cather­ine (LeBlanc) Thibeau; daugh­ter Theresa Schell; sis­ters-in-law, Shirley Doucette, Theresa Thibeau and a brother-in-law, Arthur Muise. To know Tom (“Herky” or “Pops”) is to know how much love he had for his fam­ily, friends and God. If you ever needed ad­vice on quilt­ing you could turn to him. Pops life was filled with so many trav­els from cas­tles in Ed­in­burgh to beaches in Cyprus. As a mem­ber of The Queens Own Ri­fles he brought his fam­ily from Ger­many to Cal­gary. He was the re­cip­i­ent of the No­bel Piece Prize as a Peace Keeper one of his best kept se­crets. Herky grew up in Yarmouth and was an ac­tive mem­ber of St. Am­brose Par­ish, the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion, Live-In So­ci­ety and the Knights of Colum­bus. He al­ways said “there are no short­cuts in life” and he cer­tainly never took short­cuts with his love and ad­vice. May is the month of Mary and we know his de­vo­tion to the Holy Mother and her son Je­sus is what com­forted him in his last mo­ments on earth. Thank you to all who sup­ported him through this time.
