It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas Lawrence Smith on Sunday, September 4, 2022. Tom was born in Monrovia, Liberia and immigrated to Germany as young man to study banking. There he met his wife Hely and together they immigrated to Canada in 1969. His struggles with dementia led his final days being spent in excellent care of the staff at Villa Caritas. Special thanks to Dr. Singh for his patience and kindness. Tom was predecessed by his brothers Alfred, George and Nehemiah and sister Rebecca. Tom leaves behind his wife of over 50 years, Hely, daughter Maria, son Joshua and numerous nieces and nephews in the United States and Liberia. No service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Villa Caritas or the charity of ones choice.
