Uncle Tom was a kind and gentle soul. I remember when I was growing up our family always looked forward to a letter coming in the mail from Uncle Tom. I was excited to hear where he was and what he was doing . When he came home for a visit it was even a bigger deal to hear the stories live and to see pictures or maybe even some things he had collected in his travels. Later after he retired back to Dunnville, I no longer lived in town, this activity was reversed. Joan and I would come back to Dunnville for a visit and meet Uncle Tom at Mom and Dad's house or the Legion or the local coffee shop. He always asked about our lives in Calgary and what activities the girls were up to. Our family always looked forward to visiting with Uncle Tom. He will be missed by our family but never forgotten.

Jerry, Joan and Family

Hey Jack and Sandy,
Very saddened to hear of Tom's departure--I had great respect for him--as my father Wally guided
me through our Church and life--he said those Murphy Boys are "TOP SHELF" !!!!!

Tom was a valued member of First Baptist Church. While he had only been with us a few years, his quiet faith and sweet smile were a true blessing. Tom was a gentle soul who always made time to say hello and quietly took part in many of the events & ministries here. It is a shock to discover his passing but it is so typical of Tom - not wanting to make a fuss. He just quietly stepped out of this world and into eternity. He will be missed. Until we meet again...
