Tom was a gentle, generous man with a great sense of humour and a wonderfully pleasant spirit.

During the Second World War, Tom served overseas from 1940-1945 with the Electrical Mechanical Engineers. The majority of his working life was with former Hawker Siddeley, Trenton, building railway cars.

Surviving are his daughter, Sharon (Bill) LeBlanc, Truro; son, Wayne Baillie, Trenton; grandchildren, Andrea and Brent LeBlanc, Truro; sisters, Edna MacLean, Chance Harbour Road; Elsie Simon, New Glasgow; brother, John Baillie, Trenton; many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Lillian (Snow), with whom he shared many happy years; an infant son, Gary; sisters, Adelaide Marshall, Laura Feeney; brother, Robert Baillie.
The family will receive visitors from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday in P. & K. MacDonald Funeral Home, New Glasgow from where funeral service will be held 4 p.m. Thursday in the chapel with Rev. Dr. Glen Matheson officiating. Reception will follow in First United Church Hall, Trenton. Private interment will be in Hillside Cemetery at a later date.
