Thomas Edward Briard

Thomas was born March 25, 1948, in Grande Prairie, Alberta, and passed away peacefully, in the presence of his loving children and grandson, on February 18, 2010, at the Shuswap Lake Hospital in Salmon Arm, BC.

Tom was predeceased by his parents Fred & Cecilia as well as three nephews, Shane, Ross and James. He is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Jodi; his children Sarah, Amy, Jordan and Matthew and the light of his life, his grandson Brodie; brother Phil (Margaret); sisters Flo (Doug) Fergusson and Darlene (Jim) Rise and their families. Tom will be sorely missed by all the Huston Clan, especially by his mother-in-law Greta Huston and by Tom Albert, who has resided with the Briard family for many years. Family gatherings will not be the same without him.

Tom worked at a variety of jobs until 1994 when a back injury forced him to stay home. He was a generous, kind man with the most infectious laugh. Tom loved his family as he loved life. He will be cherished always.

A Celebration of Life will be held 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 24, 2010, at the Chapel of Personal Alternative Funeral Services, Armstrong. Following the service a reception will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall, Enderby.
