A brother from a different mother, Tom Mcdonald made me laugh like nobody could. When I rode my Harley it was usually just behind his and often, I got that same sort of chill I always got when I was in awe of my father. Tom was younger than I, but I looked up to him.
Tom was instrumental in customizing two bikes for me. He would send updates of the works in progress.
Tom came to me through George (pictured right) at Kreater.
We loved riding around Georgian Bay. And the pit-stops.
There was nothing I looked more forward to than the annual Kelowna trip to see our pal JVZ (pictured left) and the west coast chapter.
Tom was the best. He’ll always be the best. Sadly, the father of two passed on Fathers Day of all days, in a motorbike accident.
RIP Tom McDonald.
