Thomas Allison Kimmitt


In Fond Memory of Thomas (Tom) Kimmitt

With heavy hearts and a profound sense of loss, the family of Thomas Kimmitt sadly announces his peaceful passing on March 6, 2024, at the age of 96.

Tom was a beloved husband, grandfather, and great-grandfather, who held his cherished family and friends above all else. His life was a testament to generosity, and his legacy
endures through the lives of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who have been deeply influenced by his knowledge, kindness, and compassion.

A skilled Journeyman Automotive Service Technician and successful businessman, with a well-deserved reputation as the friendly neighborhood dad who could fix any vehicle. He selflessly imparted his knowledge and skills, mentoring numerous youths in mastering their own repairs and extending a helping hand whenever it was needed. Tom’s passions extended beyond the garage, finding exhilaration in racing cars at the Edmonton International Speedway and the Westwind Oval. He also cherished moments of
camaraderie while indulging in his love for pool and social gatherings at the Central Lions Seniors Recreation Centre and Cedar Heights Community League in Sorrento, BC.

Tom was predeceased by his beloved wife Ruth, as well as his parents Jack and Jean. Tom will be lovingly remembered by his children Todd (Melanie), Patrick (Patricia), Scott (Kim), grandchildren Tiffany (Mark), Jensen, Ashley (Matt), Chad (Shawn), Ryan, Tyler, and great grandchildren Audrey, James, and Addison. He also leaves behind his extended family, and a community of friends who will forever be grateful for his presence in their lives.

While we mourn Tom’s physical absence, we take solace in knowing that he has been
reunited with the love of his life, Ruth, in the comforting embrace of our Lord and Savior. May their souls rest eternally in love and peace.

“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul”
– Psalm 23:1-3
