It is with a broken heart that I announce the passing of Thomas Dale Erb, my beloved husband of 32 years.

Known to those who love him simply as Tom, he passed over in my embrace on August 3, 2015, at the age of 66. He is sure to be welcomed with loving arms by his much-loved son, Morgan; his mother, Muriel; and his father, Cyril.

He is survived by his loving wife, Bonnie; brother, Dan Erb; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Mark and Susie Goodman; and his fabulous nephew Daniel!! He is also dearly missed and remembered by the Kleiman family, the Goodman family, the Hammer family, the Jassie family and the many friends he has made in his years on St. Thomas.
