Obituary of Tom Grandy
It is with great sadness the family of Thomas (Tom) Grandy of Grand Bank announce his sudden passing at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Center on February 16th at the age of 76 years.
Tom went to Seal Cove to teach at an early age of 16. He taught school there for 2 years and met the love of his life Gladie Loveless who he married and brought back to Grand Bank and raised his family and taught for another 29 years. He retired at the age of 48 years. He enjoyed his life with his family and times spent together at his home and cabin. He learned to play the accordion on his own and he and Gladey spent many hours singing together. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, Uncle and friend to many.
A very humble man who loved to hear a story and tell a story to whomever he could get to listen. To know Tom was to love him, he was a very soft spoken man who loved laughter and was in his delight when a crowd came around to share in a meal or a good game of cards. Tom will be missed by many but especially his two granddogs Skippy and Gus.
Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories his loving wife of 57 years Gladie; daughters Margaret (Albert) of Grand Bank; Lois (Jeff) of St. John’s and Paula (Bob) of Brampton, ON; grandchildren Heather, Aaron and Blake (Lori); great grandchildren Austin and Greyson; sister Geneva (Fred); brothers Jack (Sharon) and Roy (Denise) plus a large circle of other family and friends.
