RIP Stompin' Tom Connors

Tom Connors. February 9, 1936 – March 6, 2013

From the staff at www.stompintom.com

We must regretfully announce today the passing of the Great and Patriotic Stompin' Tom Connors. He died this March 6th 2013 with his Family seeing him off. His family have given us a message from Tom that he wanted passed along to all of you upon his death:

"Hello friends, I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin' Tom."

"It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with it's beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world."

"I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future."

"I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done."

Sincerely,

Your Friend always,

Stompin' Tom Connors

Well, the good old hockey game
Is the best game you can name,
And the best game you can name
Is the good old hockey game.

I didn't even know the name of the song's author/performer until just now, but as a lifelong hockey fan I've sung that song with stadium crowds many times. RIP, Stompin' Tom Connors.
