Born in 1926, at the family farm in Lakeville, Kings Co., he was a son of

Bligh, Dartmouth. Besides his parents, Thomas was predeceased by his first
wife, Betty (Hansen) Bligh of Windsor. He was always particularly proud of
the accomplishments of his grandchildren. For many years he managed the
family farm on Tory Lane, Lakeville, where due to market circumstances the
primary focus changed from apples and potatoes to dairy and beef cattle.

in Harbourville and the special events with many friends and neighbours.
