TTC family mourns Tom Dedes10/13/17 6:00 AM
The tragic loss of our TTC colleague, Tom Dedes, who was just 50 years old, has cast a very dark shadow over the entire TTC team this week.
Tom sadly lost his fight for life despite truly valiant work by doctors at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre to save him. This has had a devastating impact on his family, his friends and his co-workers.
Tom gave 18 years of his life to serving the travelling public of Toronto, working in the closely knit family of track workers, all of whom are profoundly shocked by the loss of a friend.
No one should get killed or injured at work and we are working closely with the Ministry of Labour to understand how such a tragedy could have occurred. While accidents like this are very rare, we will take whatever action is necessary to prevent a recurrence.
Tragedies like this put everything else into perspective and our top priority is to ensure that we are there for Tom’s family and for his co-workers.
Rest in peace, Tom. You will never be forgotten at the TTC.
Advancing to the next level.
COVID-19 update: positive tests at Arrow Road, Wilson-Subway and ATC.
