Lovingly cared for by his children, Lori (Price) Couture (William Nielsen) and Tom Price Jr.

Fondly remembered by his son-in-law John Couture and his good friend Barry Dickson.
The majority of his career was spent at Ontario Steel/Rockwell/Meritor/MSSC. For 6 years, he was part-owner and operator of a transport company in Chatham. He was athletic playing baseball, hockey and golf throughout his lifetime. He was a member of Willow Ridge Golf Course in Blenheim. He enjoyed golfing and especially teaming up with his family for charity scrambles. His favourite pastimes included cheering on the Leafs, Blue Jays, Yankees, Raptors and Steelers.
He was most proud of his family. He would call or FaceTime his grandchildren daily and always looked forward to spending time together.
‘Your death leaves us heartache no one can heal, but your love leaves us memories no one can steal.’
As per his wishes, cremation has taken place and the ashes of Tom & Sandy will be interred together. We will hold a Celebration of Tom’s life the Willow Ridge Golf Club, 439 Chatham St. S., Blenheim on Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 1:00-5:00 p.m.
