ST. AMAND, Francis Thomas (Tom)
Passed away at the North Bay General Hospital, McLaren Site on Thursday, April 14, 2005 at the age of 91. Loving husband of Beatrice Henry (predeceased December 2002); dear father of Ruth Cox (Stephen) of North Bay and Michael St. Amand (Marilyn Lee) of Petawawa; and grandfather of Chloe St. Amand, Heather Cox and Veronika Cox. He was predeceased by his parents Peter St. Amand and Adella Caron, brothers Alphonse and Oscar and sister Margaret. Born in Sault Ste. Marie on September 2, 1913, Tom moved to Pembroke as a boy. He told many stories of working summers at Father Holly's Boys' Camp and playing hockey for the Pembroke Lumber Kings. During the Depression, he worked in the Box Factory and Sawmill of the Eddy Match Company, until he ventured out into diamond drilling in northern Quebec. This eventually took him to Sudbury where he got on with INCO. During WWII he joined the RCAF, working as an aircraft mechanic. He returned to Garson in 1945 to marry his sweetheart Bea. Returning to INCO, he held various positions from Mucker, Welder, Drill Fitter, and Mechanic to finally retiring as the General Foreman of the Mechanical Department at Levack Mine in 1973. Tom and Bea enjoyed many happy years of retirement in North Bay, surrounded by good friends and family. In keeping with his wishes, cremation has already taken place. A Mass to celebrate Tom's life will be held at Holy Name of Jesus Church (Memorial Drive at the overpass) on Monday, April 18 at 11 a.m. The family will receive friends in the parish hall prior to the service starting at 10 a.m. Arrangements are under the direction of McGUINTY FUNERAL HOME. As an expression of sympathy, donations can be made to the North Bay General Hospital's Caring for Generations Campaign or a charity of your choice. signguestbook/condolences
