Passed away peacefully in his 97th year, at Lakeridge Hospital in Oshawa, ON on January 13th, 2022. Loving husband of Marguerite Farewell Jones (deceased 2020) for over 70 years.

Beloved father of Dianne Jones Osborne, Mark Jones (Terry) and Sheila Jones (late Richard J. Marceau); Grandpa of Kenneth Osborne, Rebecca Hennessy, Tammy Jones, Terri-lyn Jones Peddar (Jeremy), Tina Jones, Tobi Jones; Step-grandfather of Aude Marceau (Philippe Beauchemin), Hugues Marceau; Great-grandpa of Morgan Peddar, Calla Peddar, Tessalie Peddar.

Predeceased by his siblings: Ernest (Dorothy Scott), Meredith (Mary Chinn), Isabella (Angus McEachern), Florence (George Riddell), Ruth (Everett Dawe), David, and by his parents Thomas Caldwell and Florence Edna (Cory) Jones.

Tom was born, raised, and lived in Oshawa his entire life. He attended school in the Westmount area.

His first job was at the Supertest gas station. Tom was in the Army Reserve in the early 1940’s.

He worked at Fittings Limited prior his 37.5-year career at General Motors working as a Trouble Shooter, Foreman, Superintendent of the Chassis Plant and Superintendent of the Body Plant Trim and Hardware.

He retired in 1980. Tom loved life, work and spent many enjoyable hours on the golf course. He enjoyed his vacations down south in the sun with Marguerite. Tom was a very devoted, loving family man and will always be fondly remembered for his generosity, humour, and teasing nature.

The family would like to thank Dr. Osborne, and all the nurses, PSW’s, and staff at Traditions Retirement Home as well as the doctors, nurses, and staff of the ER and C7 floor at Lakeridge Health Oshawa for their exceptional care of Tom.

A private graveside service took place on Tuesday, January 18th at  MOUNT LAWN CEMETERY.
