Obituary of Gareth Ian Thomas
Please share a memory of Gareth to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
May 24, 1940 - October 20, 2023 It is with sadness that the family of Gareth Ian Thomas announces his passing. Gareth was the beloved husband of Elizabeth Thomas (Moss) and proud, loving father of daughter, Jennifer. Gareth enjoyed local visits with his “in-laws” – Ken Moss (Sue) from Dryden; Eldon Moss (Sharon) and Elaine Foster (Keith) from Perth. His nieces and nephews (along with their children) built proud and happy memories over the years. As an avid photographer, Gareth captured these special moments as part of his legacy. Gareth enjoyed and appreciated the beauty of the world around him - Jennifer and her equestrian events; flowers; wildlife; friends and family. His visits to family properties on Mississippi Lake provided the perfect settings. Gareth was proud of his Welsh Heritage, having moved to Canada during his childhood. His most recent travel took him home to Maesteg, Wales, where he spent time with family members. He enjoyed travelling and exploring different countries. Gareth’s career was in education, retiring from the Simcoe County Board of Education as a Superintendent of Education. He was a leader focused on the well being and active learning of all students and educators. Donations in Gareth’s memory may be made to The War Amps of Canada or the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Family members will honour Gareth privately. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family through Peaceful Transitions. Rydyn ni'n colli chi, ein holl gariad
