elevated z4iND September 19, 1941 – February 25, 2021
elevated z4iND Thomas “Tom” Nicholson passed away on February 25, 2021, at the age of 79, in his hometown of Toronto, Ontario. His battle with cancer in recent years showed his courage in facing life challenges. He was a very devoted, caring and wonderful son to his late mother and he always had a close relationship with his sister Rosie, in California. Tom met his love, Joanne at work. She loved how he could make her laugh. On September 15, 1961, they married and together had three children: Jimmy, Lisa, and Tommy. Tom made friends easily over the years. He had many fishing buddies, childhood friends, friends from the gym, neighbours and fellow dog owners. Anyone close to Tom, will remember his witty and edgy sense of humour. He was a wonderful husband, father and provider. Tom was a down-to-earth type of guy. He was known to help out his fellow neighbours and enjoyed chatting with them. He was always smiling and happy. He kept in shape and would spend time at YMCA, the Columbus Centre and the Etobicoke Olympium. Heck, he was even an aerobics instructor and was an avid runner, for many years. An outdoorsman, Tom loved fishing his whole life. He would fish during all four seasons. He enjoyed over 20 years of retirement from the TTC and was always active and keeping busy. At home, he had the most amazing vegetable garden and even made the best dill pickles. He was handy around the house, completing many renovations over the years. Tom is survived by his two sons, Jimmy, Tommy, daughter Lisa and his wife Joanne
