Thomas Edward "Tom" Behan

July 20, 1931 - August 17, 2017


Tom passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Macy and his children Anne Marie Behan, Jerome (Shannon Behan, Marty (Michelle) Behan, Theresa (Mark) Dunlop and Charlene Behan, 20 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren with one on the way.

Tom was a sawyer for most of his life and eventually owned his own sawmill. He loved writing poetry, telling stories and playing cards. His real passion was golfing.

Tom enjoyed many wonderful years up the lake at his cabin, where he and Macy hosted many people from all over the world. It was a place where everyone felt welcome.

Tom was a man of great faith and a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. He will be missed by his family and friends very much.

The family would like to take this time to thank Father Tepoorten and Father Dass for all their love and support, and also thank Doctor Elliott and staff at Willingdon Creek Village, especially Christi Olsen and Keri Logan for all their attention to detail and love toward Tom and his family.

Also, thank you to Pat and Joanne at Stubberfield Funeral Home for their loving support and help, to the wonderful choir who will sing at the funeral, to the Catholic Women’s League ladies for all their hard work and to the Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree honour guard.

Prayers will take place at 7 pm on Friday, August 25, at Church of the Assumption. Funeral mass takes place at 1 pm on Saturday, August 26, also at the church. A reception will follow the graveside service at St. Joseph’s Hall (next to Church of the Assumption).

In lieu of flowers, donations to Assumption School, which Tom loved, would be greatly appreciated.
