August 10 1935 to May 11 2012
We are very sad to pass the news that Tom Moss (Tommy Moss) who was the inventor of the Tomic Plug passed away peacefully on May 11 after a long battle with Heart and Lung disease. He will be missed dearly by his family and everyone else he touched over the years. He was a man that never gave up, no matter how much pain he was in and did what ever he could to get up and take his dog to watch the sun come up every morning.
Once the largest employer in Sooke, Tom was a legend and known to fishermen from all over the world, his knowledge of the fishing industry and dedication to make quality fishing tackle, made him to be a well known icon to many. His stories and honesty made him one of the last old timers on the coast who helped make salmon fishing what it is today. If you ever met Tom, you would always remember him.
Survived by his 3 sons, Wayne, Randy and Mike, grandson Liam as well as his daughter in laws, Sarah and Reshie who both thought of Tom as their own Father.
There will be no service, yet a gathering will be held sometime in July or August.
