THOMAS CLAYTON LEY
May 6, 2023
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas Clayton Ley. Tom was born on September 3, 1951 and passed away on May 6, 2023 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Tom is survived by his loving partner, Tammy, beloved son and daughter, Clayton and Lindsay, siblings Richard, Vivian (Dan), Michael (Bonnie), and Marlene (Francis), and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Tom is predeceased by his father, David, and mother, Gertrude.
Tom had a beautiful smile that lit up his surroundings and a charismatic personality that drew people to him. Exceedingly generous, hardworking, full of life, and compassionate, Tom put the needs of others before his own.
Tom enjoyed sports, the outdoors, cars and motorcycles from a young age. In his later years, he was passionate about his motorcycle group and the guys he rode with.
Tom loved growing up in Oyama and then raising his own family there. His farm, orchard, RV Park, and own Bobcat Excavating business were his pride. Tom was a Cub Scout leader for several years, a lifelong member of the Oyama Legion, a member of the Oyama Community Club, and a volunteer on the Oyama Cemetery Committee.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Tom’s memory to the Variety-Childrens Charity of BC, The War Amps, BC Childrens Hospital, or Lake Country Food Assistance Society.
A Celebration of Tom’s Life will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at 2pm at the Oyama Community Hall, 15710 Oyama Road, Oyama, BC. Reception to follow.
