  • Notes 
    • McFARLANE, Thomas Whitton December 14, 1941 - January 22, 2010 It is with broken hearts and deep sadness we announce the passing of Thomas (Tommy) McFarlane at 4:00 p.m. on January 22nd. He was kind, gentle and loving, an angel on earth. Born in Glasgow, Scotland he came to Canada in 1980 with his family. Tommy leaves behind his devastated wife Emily, who was always by his side to the very last, and his loving son, Stuart. Tommy was taken from us after a courageous and uncomplaining battle with cancer. He was a man of many talents who loved to sing and all who knew him will miss his lovely smile. He enjoyed a number of different careers, most recently working in engineering as a design draftsman at John Deere Hitachi. Tommy tried retirement a number of times but always seemed to be drawn back to designing and drafting, finally retiring in 2009. Heartfelt thanks to all the friends who were so incredibly supportive during his illness and also to all the staff in Palliative Care at St. Paul's Hospital who made us feel like family with their care and compassion. A celebration of Tommy's life will be held at a later date. Published in the Vancouver Sun /The Province, (01/29/10)
