A highly skilled film and television producer and mentor to many, Tom died peacefully while napping in his chair on Gambier Island, overlooking Howe Sound, after a day of puttering around his cabin, followed by a swim in the sea with his dog Lucky, surrounded by orcas. Predeceased by his much adored mother Yvonne (nee Makinson) and father Reginald Rowe and dear nephew James Rowe. Devoted to and loved beyond measure by his wife Vicki Gabereau and daughter Katherine Makaroff (Chris); grandsons Elliott, Avery; siblings Michael (Donna), Vicki (Daryl), Jane (Lloyd), Jim (Michelle); nieces Cooper, Maxine, Cameron, Shayna and Erin; nephews William, Robert, Corey, Bill, Tom; stepchildren Morgan Gabereau (Stephanie) and Eve Gabereau (Craig) and grandchildren Lucas, Elodie, and Blaise. Interment at Capilano View Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. Enthusiastic wake and monster rally for industry and friends to be held in the fall.
