Thomas is survived by his wife Oksana of 65 years, daughters Patricia and Janice and his grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother Metro (Frances), brother-in-law Atanazie and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Thomas worked in the finance industry and retired as a Financial Planner with RBC Dominion Securities.
