Obituary for Thomas Connell

Tom died peacefully at Burnbrae Gardens, Campbellford on November 30th, 2019, surrounded by his loving wife and children. Born to Thomas and Frances Connell on December 24th 1933 in Glasgow, Scotland, Tom was pre-deceased by his father and mother, brothers Bernard and Robert, and his sons Daniel and Nicholas. He was the loving husband of Frances ( nee Boyle ) of 64 years, the cherished father of Margaret ( Ron ), Tom, Frances, ( Adel ), Gerry, ( Kim ), Joseph ( Margaret ), Mary ( Julian ) Christina ( Chris ) Nicholas and Daniel. He was the much loved and treasured Granda to 24 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. He leaves behind his sister Molly of Oshawa and brother Patrick of Melbourne, Australia. Tom graduated from Glasgow University with an Honours M.A. in Modern Languages in 1962. After attending Jordanhill Teachers' College, he taught in Scotland for two years before emigrating to Canada with his wife and five children in 1964. Tom spent 26 enjoyable years teaching French and Spanish at Campbellford District High School, until his retirement in 1989. Tom would often remark in later years that teaching was not a job, but a pleasure, and he loved bumping into his former students. He remembered them all. He was deeply passionate about anything concerning his family, his Catholic faith, and soccer, especially his beloved Glasgow Celtic F.C. Tom was an athlete and fitness buff throughout his life. He was an avid runner and competitive soccer player until he was sixty five, and continued to work out and power walk until well into his seventies. Tom spent his retirement years devoting himself to his family, babysitting his many grandchildren, and travelling with his wife Frances. He will be sorely missed. His family wish to thank the staff of Burnbrae Gardens for their outstanding care and compassion over the last 3 years. A special thank-you to Amber.
