A Joint Communique

Tom was from Sligo,

The youngest and last surviving member of the Wickham family.

He went to school in Castlemartyr college in Cork,

and became a Carmelite postulant and novice for a short time.

Tom became a Pharmacist encouraged by his sister, Sheila.

He met Mary, his wife for 55 years, while training in Killybegs,  Co Donegal.

He played for Donegal county, a legendary centre forward.

He worked at management level in Leo Laboratories until his retirement.

Later he worked in Neilstown family Pharmacy.

He loved the horses and won many Jackpots, earning the nickname

‘The Jackpot King ‘

He loved Our Lady of Fatima and the Rosary,

good music, serious reading but above all his family.

Watched Mass everyday on the Fatima website.

He was good at texting too but did not overdo it.

He was interested in history and current affairs, a great mind.

Tom made friends easily, enjoying Probus when he finally retired.

He had a lot of illness but always recovered, cared for by Mary.

Generous and kind, he especially loved his Grandchildren.

Mary said ‘He was always there for me ‘.

God rest him now.
