Tom Northcott
Thomas, H. A.
August 7th, 1933-November 28th, 2016

Tom was born in Lewisporte and, after a long and very happy life, passed away November 28th, 2016 at the Health Science Centre, St. John's. Predeceased by parents Archelaus and Violet Northcott, and sister Mary Lou Northcott Peters. Leaving behind, after 54 wonderful years of marriage, his wife Judy Press Northcott; sons Tom/Tag (Heather Bartlett) and Mark (Natasha McDonald); daughter Tanya; foster daughter Lynda Mothersole (Mike McFarlane); grand-sons Skye, Tyler, Jacob, and Liam Northcott; grand-daughter Sage Northcott; grand-son Harley Mothersole; Judy's brother and sisters: George Press (Gladys Leamon), Roslyn Emberley (John), Roberta Osmond (Derek), and their families. A year after their 1962 marriage, Tom, Judy and their young son moved to the mainland: Alberta, NWT, and Ontario. Returning to St. John's in 1972 with their three children, they built new careers. After retirement, Tom and Judy moved to Deep Bight and were currently living in Clarenville. At Tom's request, cremation has taken place. Remembrances and burial at the Anglican Cemetery on Forest Road in St. John's was a quiet family affair.
Tom, a strong and healthy 6ft man, came to a tragic end, as while doing midmorning errands, he was struck down and run over in a parking lot and succumbed to his injuries. Tom would be pleased if you would donate a book to a public library and raise a glass of wine in his memory!
