Thomas (Tom) Gilbert Corfe

December 14, 1952 – December 29, 2015

Tom Corfe passed away at BVDH surrounded by family and friends, ending his long battle with cancer.

Tom’s passions in life were ranching and his love for horses. Tom was a talented artist; he created many drawings of animals, and turned them into beautiful wood carvings. His other passionate hobbies were hunting and fishing. When Donna, the love of his life, passed away last year, Tom made the decision to sell the farm and move to Houston. His new home wasn’t just his dream home, but Donna’s too. It is decorated exactly as their life together was, the story begins and welcomes you at the front door.

Tom is survived by his sons Justin, Cody, Morgan and James Lyon, and their families. His four sisters, eldest to youngest, Kate, Maggie, Julie, Lisa and brother Gord, and their families. He had many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.

Tom is predeceased by his parents George and Gloria Corfe and the love in his life, Donna.

The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses, and staff at BVHD, as well as the ambulance attendants. But most importantly, Dr. Bizz and Dr. Hart, he couldn’t have been in better care for is whole cancer journey from beginning to end.

“Tom, you were one of the toughest cowboys we know. We knew your journey was over when you left your cowboy hat and boots at the front door.” ~Rest in Peace Cowboy!!!

A gathering will be held at a later date for family and friends to remember both Tom and Donna.
