Obituary of Thomas Lord

Lord, Thomas Spencer

We celebrate the wonderfully well-lived life of Thomas Spencer Lord, a true renaissance man who passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends, on November 6, 2017 at PRHC in his 91st year. Thomas lived a life of great passion as a deeply loving and loved family man. He was also extremely dedicated to his many horse, dog and cat companions. His pursuits are a testament to the richness of life. A poet, a farmer, an inventor, a boxer and a foreman. He was a leader among men. Thomas was also a conscientious and outspoken citizen and an active community member. He was a keen observer of the human condition and cared profoundly about his fellow man. Thomas will be remembered with deep affection as a man of tremendous mental and physical strength; he stood well on the planet. Thomas is survived by his beloved wife Bonnie Heather Holliwell (nee Mitchell), step-children Rick Mayo and family and Bonnie's daughter Alexis Renae Bruyns (Rob Payne). Proud grandfather of Ryker Payne. Dear brother of Barbara McGovarin and Peggy Riley. Fondly remembered by his nieces Mary Lefave, Heather Taylor, Kathy Field, Janet Sandercock and nephews Alan Lord, Fred McGovarin, Peter McGovarin and Steve McGovarin as well as many extended family and friends including Lefty Reed, Gerry Haywood, Scott and Tami Colman-Sadd. A Celebration of Thomas's Life will be planned for a later date. Online condolences to the family may be made at
