We Remember

CARRUTHERS, Thomas William

June 1, 1952 — January 4, 2024

In memory of Tom, a talented Chef whose culinary creations delighted many. At the age of 71, Tom passed away in his Kelowna home with friends by his side on January 4, 2024.

Beyond the kitchen, Tom was a man of few words, yet his kindness and generosity left a lasting impact. Tom found joy in the company of dogs, and walking his beloved companions, Oscar and Mollie, along the Mission Park Greenway was a favourite pastime.

Tom leaves behind his dear friends, who were like family to him, Judy Johnsen, Monique Ems, Nette Redekop, Ken & Susan Phillips, Joyce (and the late Bud) Shelley, and their families.

Memorial donations in Tom’s honour can be sent to the BC SPCA
