By Lethbridge Herald Obituaries on June 11, 2014.

(William Thomas) Tom Ferguson was born August 1, 1935 and died June 4, 2014. He was predeceased by his parents, Isabelle and Hugh, and sisters Yvonne and Huelda. Left to mourn his passing are Carole, his loving wife of 54 years, his six children Marnie, Rochelle (and Farron), Jeff (and Paula), Lane (and Tracy), La Vonne (and Tony) and Glen (and Kim), nineteen grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and five additional grandchildren gifted to his family.
Tom’s life was extraordinarily integral in how it fit together. He was a devoted husband, father and farmer. He was solid in his friendships, his service to others and as an advocate for the betterment of the wider community.
Tom was especially loved as a husband and a father. He was always there for his family; supporting,
teaching, helping. His sense of humour would always help to lift and carry any load. Having fun while working hard together provided the medium by which grew respect, honesty, integrity and work ethic. This legacy now spans three generations.
He loved the mountains, the land and the country way of life. Retirement to Tom included farming, reading, coffee and conversation.
His love for others and dedication has enriched this community and the lives of family, friends and any he chanced to meet. He was truly a remarkable man that touched so many lives. He will be sadly missed by his family, friends, community and beyond.
A memorial service for Tom will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at THE PINCHER CREEK COMMUNITY HALL, 287 Canyon Drive, Pincher Creek, AB. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society #200, 325 Manning Road NE, Calgary, AB, T2E 2P5, or any charity of choice.

Thank you to the staff at Vista Village for your kindness and compassion shown to Ted, during his time spent there.
