LEPP: Thomas Edgar
Surrounded by loved ones, and in the comfort of his home, Thomas Lepp passed away Tuesday, August 22, 2017.
Loving partner of Pashana, father to Ethan (Melissa), Evan, Malcolm, and Isaac, and Thompa to Arwen. Thom was the youngest of six siblings. He is survived by his brother Eric (Barb) Lepp and sisters Kate Egetmeyer and Judith Frugier. He joins his brother Richard (Betty-Ann) Lepp, sister Sylvia (Eric) Yonke, and parents John and Katharine Lepp in a place of peace, love, and happiness.
In his younger years, Thom played church league baseball for the Knights with his brothers Richard and Eric. He then moved on to play Slo-Pitch for the Rombys team alongside his brother Eric. During the fall months Thom and Eric would turn to Ball Hockey for the Niagara Falls Romby’s team, who they would travel with to Boston for tournaments on multiple occasions.
His love for photography was captured with the never ending cycle of black and white photographs hung throughout this home, most of which were taken on his beloved trips to South America.
Thom was a pivotal personality in his Port Dalhousie community. He is loved and admired for his sense of adventure and love of life. He passionately devoted himself to his sons, providing them with a lifestyle filled with Love, Joy, Humour, and Music; in an environment with plenty of room for back yard ice rinks and baseball.
Thom will be remembered for his joy of family and friends, his many years of orchestrating pizza, music parties, and festivals. Cicada Festivals and back yard festivals were celebrated annually for over 20 years. He has lived a life surrounded by musicians and music.
Thom’s home will always be appreciated for its casual and comfortable hospitality, invitations to enjoy the nature setting where he merged with trees, water, birds, wildlife, and his beloved dogs. He created a place on the planet where Magic is real, Peace is felt and Life is beautiful. Thom has sadly left our lives but will live on in our hearts. He left this world greatly loved and truly desired his loved ones to live fully, deeply and true.
Special thanks and appreciation for his final care. The Hospice Home Care Team, Amy Uramowski, Brooke Haight, Zeke and Lana Yovanavich, Paramed nurses Susan and Liliya and the Walker Family Cancer Centre.
The family of Pashana (Lynda Kay Knapp) will forever hold him in their hearts, cherishing him to his last breath. They called him Strider, their Magic Man.
