Tom was a a quiet role model and inspiration. He showed us how to live life with a positive outlook and a giving attitude.

He was the very definition of a fine husband and father. I witnessed this personally over the years as he became an important part of my family and through the honour of being able to call his children my brothers and sister.

We will be lost without his simple wisdom, good humour, sense of duty and love. But we are so much richer for having had him in our lives.

Tom was a great friend to myself and my sister. We shared many good times together in our youth. We managed to reconnect in our elder years for a short time before he passed. We will always remember you Tom and rest in peace. You will be missed by everyone. Deepest condolences to your family.

My sincerest condolences for Alice and Toms children and grandchildren.

Tom was both my brother and my best friend as young children in Creemore
We lost contact for many years but always fondly remembered him and tried to find him we were overjoyed thanks to internet we were able to locate him and reminisce of old times and fill in the blanks of years past.
We thank god for having had the this short time with Tom he was always a gentle caring soul. Rest In Peace.

My father in law, Thomas Irwin Dunstan, was a great man.
You’ll hear all sorts of people, from all walks of life, state this. But I lived it.
Tom welcomed me into the Dunstan clan in 1985 when I married my sole mate, his son, Todd.
He loved all animals and showed this on a visit to Mb. when our car was broken into and his travel gear, including camera and binoculars was stolen; but he was more concerned with my dog Houston not being harmed. (He may have sat on an RCMP car with the constables hat on for a pic.)
Dad made me feel so welcome with each visit.
He didn’t bat an eye when I said I had my ‘dainties’ packed for Christmas. (I didn’t know Ontarian’s called lingerie dainties! We Manitoban’s knew them as Xmas cookies! And they didn’t tell me for two years.) And don’t forget to lock the freezer or you wouldn’t have any for the holiday season.
He welcomed me into his home (for six months) with a one year old, (Nadine) and 7 mths. pregnant (with William) and with a dog (Houston) to await Will’s birth while Todd was training in Borden and Ottawa.
He loved his grandchildren and made a point of visiting each new addition. For Joseph’s birth in Calgary, he enjoyed a hot air balloon festival, the Calgary stampede and a trip to Drumheller, with myself and all three children. (Todd was working as a medic at the Boy Scott Jamboree.)
He encouraged imagination and invention prompting the kids to explore their horizons with humour and innovation, including costumes and the ‘Willy and Billy Spotlight on Deer show’!
He loved meeting new people and discussing all sorts of topics! He could speak with either the garbage man or high ranking diplomat with the same respect and interest, and they reciprocated, as they came to know him as well, as a great man.
We will and are missing you Dad. Love Tracy xo
