Obituary for Thomas Dex Harrison

HARRISON, Thomas Dex
July 12, 1942 - August 22, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband/father in his 81st year surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday August 22, 2023.
He was a devoted husband for 57 years to Gail, a proud father to Ken (Colette), Tammy (Yoan, deceased) and Kristina (Brendon) and, a proud and special grandpa to Isabelle and Mathew. He was a dear brother to Betsy (Phil) and Jamie (Kathy). Fond brother-in-law to Joan (Hans, deceased), Lyle, deceased (Lynda) and Judy (Raymond, deceased). Tom was predeceased by his parents, Ronald Dex and Margaret Harrison.
After an exemplary career with the Federal Government, he retired as an Aerospace Engineer. He had a great engineering mind and loved to solve problems. In his free time, he loved growing his own vegetables, doing renovations, enjoyed his machinery and computers, and visiting with his children and grandchildren. His pride and joy, after his family, was his F-150 Lightning electric truck and he especially enjoyed sharing it with others.
He was a loving and dedicated husband, father and grandfather who lived life to the fullest. He is loved, will be missed and will forever be in our hearts. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Renfrew Victoria Hospital. Tributes, condolences and donations may be made online at
