LAWRENCE, Thomas Michael
Age 64, of Falmouth, passed away tragically at his home on February 5, 2018. Born in Windsor, he was the son of Joan Lawrence (Boyd) and the late John Lawrence.
Tom, as he was known to everyone, was a favourite son of Falmouth and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him. Tom was known for his big heart, wit mind and infectious smile.
