<div itemprop="description">Thomas "Tom" Milburn Mimee<br>June 7, 1918 - August 1, 2019 <br>CD (Capt. Ret.) <br>CRCCS - September 1939 RCOC - December 1939 <br>RCEME - 1944 - 1966<br><br>Peacefully on August 1, 2019 at 101 years of age. Born June 7, 1918 in Montreal, Quebec. Predeceased by his parents Edward Mimee and Jane Jobling, his first wife Isabel Wood (1989), his brothers Bill (1990) Henry (2019) and sister-in-law Carol (2014). Tom's theatres of service included Canada, the United Kingdom, Northeast Europe, Korea and the Gaza Strip. Tom joined RCCS in Montreal September 1939, re-mustered to RCOC December 1939 from where he was posted to London, Ontario as a member of the #1 Army Field Workshop, RCOC. The unit landed at Greenock, Scotland, on December 24, 1940. Upon re-organization he became a member of the 2nd Division Infantry Workshop RCOC. During this time he married the late Isabel Wood (WAAF). Their only child Margaret was born on August 5, 1943. In May of 1945 he was posted to #1 Tank Troop Workshop, RCEME, situated in Holland from which he returned to Montreal in September of 1945. He continued his service in Montreal with 202 Base Workshop, then on to Vancouver where he was posted to Korea in May of 1954. Upon return in September of 1955 he was posted to Valcartier, P.Q. Then on to the RCEME School, Kingston, Ontario. They weren't satisfied with Tom remaining in Canada for so long so D Pers, Ottawa, decided he was a ripe candidate to visit UNEF in Gaza Strip. Finally in September 1965 he got a Canadian posting to Lakeview, Ontario, from which he landed a civvie job with the Electronic Industries Association of Canada. He truly retired in September of 1983. Tom will be dearly missed by his 2nd wife Anne, who he married in November of 1990, his daughter Marg Rae(Vancouver) and Anne's children, Edward and Ame (Carl) and the grandchildren, Jasper (Edward), Helen-Ann and Alice (Ame and Carl). Anne's nieces and nephew and their families will also miss Tom. The family are deeply grateful to the many staff at the Perley & Rideau who provided expert and heartfelt care for Tom in his last year of life. Especially for the staff on Gatineau 2N his unit. No flowers please. Family will receive friends on Tuesday, August 13, at the Pinecrest Visitation Centre (2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa) from 1 p.m. until the time of Tom's celebration of life, to be held in the Pinecrest Chapel at 2 p.m. Burial following the service.
