Thomas Richardson

June 8, 1942 - November 14, 2011


On Monday, November 14, 2011, Mr. Thomas George Richardson of Oliver passed away surrounded by his family at his home.
He was predeceased by his parents, Maybelle and James Richardson. He is survived by his loving wife, Betty, of 47 years; daughter, Kelli; son-in-law, Vance and granddaughter, Briane Terry.
“Tommy Telephone” worked for BC Tel/Telus for 28 years. He was TWU local 1 president and plant counsellor for 4 years.
Over the years, he was a member of the Oliver Kinsmen Club and the Kettle Valley Railway Club of Penticton. He was a lifelong model railroad enthusiast, who also enjoyed building models, as well as woodworking. Through his woodworking he created many treasured heirlooms for his family and friends.
Tom was a fun-loving guy who enjoyed the revelry of his friends and family, along with his “Jack on-the-rocks” and a cheeseburger.
Tom treasured his family above all and was there for them in every way.
The family wishes to thank all of the staff at the SOGH in Oliver, Penticton Hospital ICU and Kelowna Hospital for the kind and caring support they provided throughout his hospital stays.
A very special thank-you also to Jack and Heather Frank for always being there when needed.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
