HANKEY, Thomas James

It is with great sadness and heartbreak that we announce the sudden passing of our dearly loved husband, father, brother, uncle, friend and all great man. Thomas James Hankey on Thursday October 16, was hunting up north with his best friends when he suffered a heart attacked and passed away immediately. All efforts were made to save him, but there was nothing that could have brought him back to us.

Tom was predeceased by his parents Dorothy and Reginald Hankey and is survived by his best friend, soul mate, wife Kristine Nixon-Hankey, his 2 sons Bryan and Scott (Sheridan), his brothers Ken (Laura), David (Louise) and Donald, their children and their families.

Tom was a 34 year employee of North Cowichan and had just retired on September 26, 2014. He was an extremely wonderful husband, father and friend and considered mostly everyone we knew as extended family. There are so many people I would like to mention in Thanks but the list is just too long. Always willing to help anyone who needed him, his heart was full of love and kindness. Bryan, Scott and Kristine would like to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers and your kindness in this very difficult time. All of the flowers, cards, food, hugs and well wishes means so much to all of us and there are not enough words to tell you all how much we appreciate all of you.

Everyone who knew Tom is welcome and we look forward to hearing stories and antidotes of his rich and full life. We will be holding a Celebration of Life in his Memory on Saturday November 8, 2014 at 1:00 PM at Mellnor Hall, Cowichan Exhibition Grounds, North Cowichan (Duncan, BC).

Please be advised to anyone attending the service, there is a family member with an extreme allergy to scents, (such as perfumes and strong smelling flowers).
