Thomas Andrew McGill, 68, went to be with the Lord on August 14, 2021. He was born in Danville, Illinois on December 24, 1952 to James and Ida McGill. Saving the best for last, Tom was the youngest of seven.
Tom spent his childhood moving across the country, but called Canby, Oregon his home for the last 36 years. He retired from Stanley Hydraulic Tools after 31 years and spent his retirement doing the things he loved: shooting, tinkering in his shop, and spending time with his family and friends.
Tom married Teresa Taylor in 1975 and together they raised two children whom he prayed for daily. He was a man of profound faith; he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior at a very young age, and he walked with God daily.
He is survived by his wife, Teresa; two children, Mindy (husband Travis) McCraw and Corey (wife Karen); three brothers, Perry (Sandra), Roy, and David (Dorothy); two sisters, Barbara Jessmer, and Janice (Don) Potter; and four grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 1 pm Thursday, August 26 at the Canby Pioneer Chapel in Canby, Oregon. A graveside service will follow at 11 am Friday, August 27 at Olney Cemetery in Pendleton, Oregon.
