November 2, 1940 – October 12, 2019
It is with deepest regrets we announce the passing of Tom Gough after his courageous battle with cancer, in his 79th year with loving family by his side. Survived by his soul mate, best friend and loving wife of 58 years, Barb. Most loving dad of his sons Donald (Michelle) and Mark (Corrie) and his favorite daughter, Linda Gough. Treasured Grandpa to Johnathon, Ashley, Steven, Daniel, Devon, Jerod, Jorgia and Jamie. Will be dearly missed by siblings Betty, Maureen and Karen. Predeceased by his sister Dorothy and best friend and brother from another mother, Walter Drane (Drano). He also leaves his beloved furry friend Charlie.
Tom loved to fish, golf and hunt. He was an entrepreneur who wasn’t afraid to take chances. He opened and ran a family fishing charter business a tourist camp and a bakery and deli. His favorite time of year was fall and he and Barb enjoyed a yearly road trip to see the colours. We will forever miss his sense of humour and friendly disposition.
The family wishes to thank the nurses and doctors at North Shore Health Network in Blind River and the Health Sciences North Cancer Clinic in Sudbury for their care and kindness. The family also wishes to express their gratitude to the Calvary Gospel Church for all their compassion and support during this difficult time.
Services for Tom will be announced and held at a later date.
