Thomas Alexander HUMPHREY
By Bruce T. HUMPHREY Tuesday, June 24, 2003 - Page A20
Husband, father, grandfather, community leader, funeral director. Born December 6, 1918 in Toronto. Died October 22, 2002 in Barrie, Ontario, of cancer, aged 83.
Tom HUMPHREY was born the only child of Albert (Bert) and Florence HUMPHREY. When his father died at the age of 44, Tom's mother took control of the family firm with the assistance of a manager until Tom was old enough, in 1939, to obtain his funeral director's licence.
He and his mother operated both the funeral home and the ambulance service they provided to the public. As the third generation HUMPHREY to guide the family business, Tom took great care in making sure that the firm continued to upgrade its services and facilities within an ever-changing society.
Active in the community, Tom helped create the Metropolitan and Provincial Ambulance Groups.
He was also a member of the Toronto Board of Trade; the Masonic Order, and Bedford Lodge No. 638 G.R.C. for more than 50 years.
Tom also belonged (and held office) in the Rameses Shriners as well, he was a member for 50 years (in addition to having served as a past director) of the Royal Order of Jesters Court 83 and a member of the Toronto-Leaside Rotary Club for more than 45 years.
He was one of the founders of the Funeral Society of Ontario (Fraternal), known today as Guaranteed Funeral Deposits of Canada. He also served as a director on various boards for several companies and participated in several professional associations during his life.
Tom was a member of Toronto's Leaside United Church since 1956, having served many years as an elder.
Boating was a also great interest -- almost a passion -- to my father; this led to his becoming the first Commodore of the Big Bay Point Yacht Club.
Thomas HUMPHREY moved to Thornhill, Ontario, shortly after his marriage to Lois Belle LEONARD, the love of his life since their meeting 70 years ago. Eventually, he and his family moved to homes in Big Bay Point and the Barrie area in Ontario, providing him with great personal satisfaction and an ever-increasing and enlarging circle of Friends.
"His other love in life has been to travel with my mom to wonderful and exotic locales around the world, with his home time divided between Ontario and Florida," says his daughter Valerie DICKSON/DIXON.
Thomas's wife Lois says: "His personal and corporate success will be long remembered and revered by family, Friends and business associates. "
Most of all, Tom loved his family members, who meant so much to him. He will always be missed and loved by his children, grandchildren and all those who were close to him.
Tom is survived by his wife Lois, daughter Valerie and her husband Rod DICKSON/DIXON; son Bruce and his wife Christina K. HUMPHREY.
Tom was predeceased by daughter Denise WATSON and is father-in-law to John WATSON.
Tom is lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Andrew WATSON Sean and Jeffrey DICKSON/DIXON; and Adam, Jacquelyn and Courtney HUMPHREY.
Bruce HUMPHREY is Thomas HUMPHREY's son and president of Humphrey Funeral Home, A.W. Miles Chapel.
