ATKINS, Thomas B.J. "Tom"
Suddenly, on Tuesday, September 18, 2007, Thomas B.J. 'Tom' ATKINS, ham radio call sign VE3CDM (or as he would say, 'victor-echo-three-cool-drymartini') passed away at home, at the age of 81. Dad's integrity, generosity and work ethic inspired us all. He generously gave his time and effort to support many others, in particular through his service as a leader of many ham radio organizations in Canada and around the world. Dad passed away after a tough year of medical problems following an unexpected hip fracture in September 2006. Up until his accident, he was fully independent, living with Mum in their family home of 45 years in Don Mills and traveling the world. He was a founder of St. Matthew The Apostle Oriole Anglican parish, where he faithfully attended services every week until his accident. In his last months Dad suffered from dementia which developed aggressively after his hip fracture, but he never forgot the faces of his loving family. Having trained originally as a lawyer in his native England, Tom emigrated to Canada in 1952 with his bride Joan (née EVANS.) After starting his professional career in Canada as a banker with Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Tom followed his love of all things electronic into the fledgling Canadian television industry where he ultimately held senior executive positions with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, CTV, and Bushnell Communications (now Standard Radio). While his business successes were many, Tom's proudest accomplishments occurred in the world of amateur radio, where he served as President of Region 2 (The Americas) of the International Amateur Radio Union, after completing a number of terms as President of the Canadian Radio Relay League and, before that, various Ontario ham radio organizations. Tom led the communications team on the Canadian side of the joint Canada-USSR trans-polar ski trek in 1988, which led to a number of lasting international Friendships. In recognition of his many years of service to all these various organizations and initiatives, Tom was elected Canadian Amateur of the Year in 1991 by his fellow hams, and was named to the Radio Amateurs of Canada hall of fame in 2003. Dad served in World War 2 as an LST signals officer in the British navy, and later as a captain in the Canadian Forces reserves. He was proud to have served both his native and adopted countries honourably. Like many combat veterans, he never spoke much about his military service but in his last months as the dementia advanced, some of those memories haunted his dreams. He leaves behind Jo, his loving wife of 55 years, his two daughters and their families: Margaret Shân ATKINS of Chicago, her husband Jim ERBS and grand_sons David, Andrew and Graham ERBS; and his daughter Elizabeth Joan ('Liz') ATKINS of Toronto, her husband Paul DORGAN and grand_son James DORGAN; his sister Joyce RATTRAY of Newmarket, England and brother Clifford ATKINS of Upton-on-Severn, England. He was predeceased by his youngest brother Robert ATKINS, and by his parents Clifford and Bronwen ATKINS. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Many thanks to the many kind caregivers at Amica of Bayview for the compassion they have all shown to both Mum and Dad over these recent difficult months. A memorial service to celebrate Dad's life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday September 22 at St. Matthew The Apostle Oriole Anglican parish, 80 George Henry Boulevard, North York, with refreshments to follow in the parish hall. In lieu of flowers the family request that donations in Dad's memory be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Alzheimer Society of Canada, or St. Matthew The Apostle Oriole.
