Members and friends of St. Peters Harbour Lighthouse Society
There is very sad news today, I’m afraid.
We regret to inform you that our fearless leader Thomas (Tom) Moore has passed away in Toronto. I am sure many of you are shocked as it is hard to imagine a stronger or more determined man.
His relentless forward motion to get the lighthouse to its current state, to get it safely funded and to gather together as many like-minded people as possible from near and far to protect and maintain it, has been extraordinary.
His obvious passion has been infectious and all of you have pitched in somehow when inspired by his love of PEI, its people and his love for one little old lighthouse in the dunes.
Tom was an accomplished architect and artist with a commitment to excellence. He had great respect for the environment as well as the work and expertise of local trades and professionals. He was always seeking and encouraging ways of building partnerships with the local community such as through participation in the River Run festival, supporting the Morell Fire Department and promoting local initiatives.
We know that you join us in recognizing this accomplishment. He surely is our honorary lighthouse keeper. It meant so much to him that all of you, from all walks of life and from a wide range of places, chose to focus your care on this old lighthouse.
The family have asked that condolences and memories of Tom be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
