ROLLINS, Clifton Thomas (Tom) -82 years. Born October 8, 1930, Tom is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Reverend Canon Genevieve (Genny) (nee MacWilliam). Beloved son of Annie (predeceased 2004) and Clifton (predeceased 1975). Devoted father of Dennis (Lisa), Cathy, Diane Riddle (Hugh), Tom Jr. (Michelle) and Christopher (predeceased 1979). Loving grandfather of Casey (Pam), Amanda (Guglielmo), Lacey, Melanie (Brian), Katie, Brian, Samantha, Neil and Harrison. Great grandfather to Julia, Brooke, Nicholas and Leah. Tom and his loving wife Genny also opened their hearts and their home to a number of foster children over the years. Of them, Aaron (son Christopher), Sally (sons Jamie, Michael (predeceased), Carter), and Patricia (daughters Alexandria, Britney, Mariah) have become their children (grandchildren) and family. Brother of Bill (Marilyn predeceased 2010) of Spuzzum, B.C., Laura Gustin (Del) of Mackenzie, B.C., Herb (predeceased 1999) (Margaret), Ruby Butler (Dennis), Harold (Predeceased 1946), Shirley Cull (Gordon) and Arnie (Beverly predeceased 2013) of Dryden, ON. After 41 and a half years of accident free service at INCO, Tom retired and devoted his time to maintaining the toboggan hill and outdoor rink at the Skead Road Community Club. He wanted to ensure that the kids had a safe and supervised place to spend their time. He spent his summers at his camp with his children and grandchildren. At 80 years of age he took his first airplane trip to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2012, he fulfilled a dream by travelling to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. He loved to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Blue Jays. Tom, being a Ford man, was always quick to voice his opinion in any debate about Fords vs. Chevs. The family wishes to thank the Second Floor Rehabilitation at York Extendicare and both the Fourth and Fifth Floor Staff at Laurentian Hospital for their support and care.
