We Remember


Richard Bruce Tomson passed away on November 5, 2017 at the age of 62. Survived by his loving partner Roelie van Diepen, daughter Caroline (Matthew) Reid of Kelowna, sister Silvi (Frank) Dodman of Oakville, ON, brother Udo (Dianne) Tomson of Burlington, ON.  Predeceased by mother Ann Tomson and his father Richard Tomson.

Rick was loved by many and respected by everyone who met him. He was a trusted business colleague, a proud father and a loving, caring partner.  He had such a love for life and jokes and had so many plans for the future.  He most enjoyed travelling the world by bike with Roelie.  He could always make people laugh with his dry sense of humour.  He will be greatly missed by the many people he touched in his life.
