Obituary for Thomas Malcolm Bickford

Thomas Bickford
May 1953 - December 9th 2023

"Though the world may seem less bright today, the light of their spirit will never fade."

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Thomas Bickford Jr. on Saturday, December 9th, 2023 at Cambridge Memorial Hospital with his loving family by his side.

He leaves behind his sister Jeanette Hawco (nee Bickford), brother-in-law Gus Hawco, niece Lisa Roth (Eddie), nephews Tony Hawco (Claire), Brandan Hawco (Sydney), and many great nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his mother Louise Bickford, father Thomas Bickford Sr. and sisters Renee and Diane, and niece Sherry Hawco.

Thomas was a quiet, gentle man who was dearly loved by his family. He loved fishing and would travel every summer to the French River which he always proclaimed was the very best place to fish. Thomas will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his family and friends.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Intensive Care Unit for their excellent care and compassion at this very difficult time. A special thank you to the 3rd floor Staff at River Bend Place for their kind and gentle care of Tom. They went above and beyond to make sure he was comfortable and well looked after.

Following Tom's wishes, there will be no public visitation or funeral service held. Cremation has taken place. As expressions of sympathy, donations made in Tom's memory to Cambridge Memorial Hospital would be greatly appreciated.
