December 29, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with sadness that the family of Thomas Cummins announces his peaceful passing on December 29, 2022, in Kelowna, B.C., at the age of 85 years.
Tom was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, to May and Joseph Cummins. At the age of 18, he came to Canada, settling in Uranium City, where he began a 60-year career in Labour Relations in the Construction and HR field. This took him many places, including Edmonton, Nelson River, Columbia River, Castlegar, Revelstoke, Gillam, Kemano, and more. Finally, he has spent the last 29 years in Peachland, B.C.
He will be remembered and sadly missed by his wife, Donna; children, Siobhan (Randy), Philip, Brad, Colette, Patricia (Mark), Jacky (John), and Kyle; stepchildren, Cory (Carell), Arron (Odette), and Christina (Ryan); twenty-seven grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews in Canada and Ireland; his mother-in-law, Vi Sinclair; and sisters-in-law, Margaret (Michael), and Catherine (Hans). Thomas was predeceased by his parents, May and Joseph Cummins; sisters, Kathleen, May, Ellen, and Bridie; brothers, Matt, Harry, and Tony.
Tom was the most selfless person, always putting everyone before himself. He was the life of every room and could turn anyone’s frown upside down.
Tommy (Uncle Tommy) is on his 19th tee with his Guinness. May your beautiful soul rest in peace.
A Celebration of Life and Golf Tournament will be held in his honour at the Irish Club in Edmonton, Alberta, at a date to be announced.
