In Loving Memory
MELOCHE, Thomas A.
Unexpectedly at home on May 20, 2019 at the age of 87 years. Beloved husband of the late Elizabeth, 1971 (nee Holdaway). Loving father of Debbie and late husband Bill; Arthur and wife Theresa; Brenda Quint and husband Gerry. Loving Pepe to Billy Carrico, Tanya Jackson and husband Jamie (Spike); Elizabeth Valihora and husband Dean, Eric Meloche and wife Laura, Samantha, Kayla, and Melennie Trevail and friend Dan Hyatt; and Olivia Quint. Loving Great Pepe to Hailey and Richard Jackson, Lucy and Rylan Bowers; Sadie and Ruby Valihora; and Penny Meloche.
Predeceased by his parents, Arthur and Beatrice. Loving brother to the late Martin and wife Lorette; the late Ernie; Rosette Meloche and late husband Tom; the late Donald and wife Annette; Percy and wife Kathy.
He will be missed by many nieces and nephews and dear friends. Thomas became a widower at a young age and worked hard to raise 3 children. He loved, taught, and cared for them.
Thomas was a lifelong resident of River Canard. He retired from General Motors in 1983 after 31 years of service. A jack of all trades, Thomas worked even harder in his retirement, always ready, willing, and able to help anyone in need. Loved by many, he will be greatly missed.
Special thank you to Tim Meloche as well as all the Emergency Service Attendants.
Arrangements are currently incomplete. There will be visitation at the funeral home followed by a Funeral Mass at Sacred Heart in LaSalle the following day. Dates and times will be updated once confirmed.
In kindness, memorial donations made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada would be appreciated by Thomas’s family.
