Tom Montpool
February 9 1973 - April 11 2020
Peacefully at home surrounded by the ones he loved most and those who loved him best.
Tom was a dedicated family man and the devoted and extremely proud dad of Charlotte (16) and Eric (17) and loving husband and best friend to Lisa (nee Phillips). He will be desperately missed by his mother Madeline and brother Andrew, sister-in-law Rhea and their children Nathan, Elena and Avery Rhea. Predeceased by his father Greg.
His loss will also be felt by his in-laws Keith Phillips, Emma and Chris Dwyer (Meredyth and Hayden) and Kirsty and Darcy Burgess (Philip and Alec) and all of his extended Keirstead clan. He will also be missed by his friends and colleagues at Environics Analytics.
Tom was a true gentleman. A gracious and kind soul who approached his illness with the same optimism, quiet strength and dignity with which he lived his life. He was an inspiration and example to us all.
Our deepest gratitude to all the staff at the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook, especially all the Chemo nurses who made treatment days easy and Dr. Mark Doherty for giving us more time.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation, in Tom’s name, to The Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook. On-line condolences may be made at

Dear Lisa, Eric, Charlotte and family,
Having worked with your husband/father Tom many years ago at Environics Analytics, I remember him as one of the smartest people I have ever met, yet he was never arrogant. His knowledge extended across all fields of study; with a rare blend of data geek and literary understanding, he could converse intelligently with anyone on pretty much any subject, usually with a smile.
Everyone at EA shared family stories as parents will do – it was nice when Lisa brought Eric and Charlotte into the office, allowing us to put faces to the names. All good.
Even though Tom was younger, I learned practical advice and approaches to working with data that still serve me well today.
The last time I saw Tom was at the EA User Conference in November 2019, when I learned of his battle. He did not look “sick” and was very positive. He remarked on the time-saving benefits of working from home, always the practical guy.
May you all feel God’s loving comfort during this terrible sad time as you treasure your memories of Tom.
Fly by night my friend, til we meet again on the other side. Bet you’re hanging out with Neil Peart and learning more about heavenly metal percussion.

My condolence to Tom's family. I worked with Tom back at Compusearch and then as a client at Environics. Tom was wonderful to work with, always had a kind word and a smile. He was as stated, a true gentleman.

Madeline, I am so very sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. You often talked about him and Andrew when I volunteered with you in the school library. So young, May he Rest In Peace.

Lisa, I am so incredibly sorry to hear about Tom. I remember this quiet guy who looked at you adoringly when you guys came over to our house for dinner when I first moved to Oakville. I can’t imagine what you must be going through but I also remember your calmness and strength which I am sure your kids will benefit from. Take care of yourself. Sending you much love.

I've been riding the GO Train with Tom for close to 20 years. Lisa rode the train with us for a while when she was pregnant with Charlotte. He is part of a Go Train family who have reached out to me to say how sad they were to hear about his passing and how much of a kind and lovely man he was. He was such a loving husband and father who always shared stories of Lisa and the kids and pictures of Eric and Charlotte as they were growing up. He was always proud of Lisa and the kids. He would talk about his Mom and Dad, and his brother Andrew and his family. He was there for me when I was going through a tough time. I could text him anytime and he would always respond and be very supportive. He would always stop and say hi when he drove past our house or when picking up the kids from school. He even brought us over a bunch of hostas for our backyard.
We had some great times on the train, shared some great friends and stories as well. As we all know, Tom loved to read. I've never seen anyone read through books as fast as he did. One of our favorite stories that we always reminisced about was a time that Tom was so engrossed in his book that he missed getting off at his stop in Newmarket, bypassed East Gwillimbury and ended up in Bradford which was thankfully the last stop at that time. I'm sure if it was going to Barrie, he may have ended up having to call his dad to pick him up. This was probably not a funny story for Lisa at the time, as she was waiting in the parking lot with the kids who were much younger at the time. She drove to East Gwillimbury where he also didn't get off, and then had to drive to Bradford to finally pick him up.
I feel truly blessed and grateful to have met and known Tom. He was such a kind, thoughtful and lovely man. I was so happy when he text me and got the opportunity to ride with him for the last time on the train when he went in to work the one day last year. It was great catching up and listening as he shared his journey. He text me on March 27th to tell me that he had taken a bad turn lately and that he was coming home from the hospital the next day. I called and spoke to Lisa briefly on March 28th. Now my friend is gone, but will never be forgotten.
Lisa, Eric and Charlotte, our heartfelt condolences go out to you and your entire family as you grieve his loss. Rest in peace Tom.
Joan and Dave Lee and family
