It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of Tom, husband, father, grandfather and good friend. He passed away peacefully in Polson Extended Care on August 26, 2007. The care and compassion of the staff was a wonderful support to Tom and his family. He was born to Tom and Elizabeth Wurz, in Penticton on Nov. 6, 1939, the 2nd of four children.

He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 47 years, Darlene; his sons, Tom (Carrie) Wurz; Doug (Gerry) Wurz; Greg Wurz and his brothers Joe (Cathy) Wurz; Paul (Lynne) Wurz; and his sister Elizabeth (Don) Schick. He leaves to his grandchildren Justin, Nazarena, and Chase unconditional love and affection.

Tom lived a full and exciting life, working in the forest industry as a logger, trucker and salesman, but found true peace and happiness while farming. His love for animals, big and small, had no boundaries.
