Tom Williamson of Walton, passed away suddenly at his residence on Dec. 28, 2021. He was 67.
Tom was the loving husband of Joyce (Blake) Williamson and the loving father of Sarah and Korey Machan, Walton; Katie and Darren Janmaat, RR 4, Clinton, and Nicole and Curtis Murray, Seaforth. He was the proud grandfather of Jackson, Ava, and Leah and Westin, Ellie, and Brooklyn. Tom was the dear son-in-law of Marie Blake, Brussels and the dear brother and brother-in-law of Shirley and Barry Skinner, Gerald and Bonnie Blake, Anne and Ken Williamson, Jim and Evelyn Blake, Murray and Sharon Blake, Clara Blake, Dianne Blake, Bruce and Michelle Blake, and Julie and Steve Wharton.
Tom was predeceased by his parents Roy and Kathleen Williamson, father-in-law George Blake, brothers-in-law Bob and Phil Blake, special cousin Neil Williamson, and nieces and nephews John Williamson, Bobby Williamson, Mitch Blake, and Dianne Gregory.
Tom was a well-loved friend and family man. He loved spending time with his family, much of it in the bush with his girls planting the thousands of trees that he did over the course of his life. He also enjoyed camping with friends and family.
Tom was a very proud father of his three girls and always took great interest and encouraged them throughout their lives. Tom adored his six grandchildren and they could often be found sitting with grandpa watching YouTube videos and enjoying four-wheeler tours in the bush. He always greeted his family at the door with a warm hello and happy smile.
He was a loving husband of Joyce for over 38 years and they enjoyed many good times over the course of their marriage and, in recent years, enjoyed travelling together. Tom will be greatly missed by all his friends and family.
Visitation was held at the Haskett Funeral Home, Seaforth on Friday, Dec. 31.
