Thomas “Tom” Newton Helliwell of Medicine Hat, beloved husband of the late Marcia Helliwell, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 29, 2023 at the age of 90 years.

Tom was born and raised in Minot, North Dakota. He worked on the Great Northern Railroad as a young man and later studied to become a geologist in California. In the 1960's, Tom met and married Marcia. Together they built a family and life based on principles of their faith. Throughout his life, Tom performed many different jobs as he was someone who was mechanically minded and handy. He volunteered his skills in charitable pursuits. Tom was loved by all and will be deeply missed. A private memorial service for the family will be held at a later date. For those who wish to remember Tom, pass on an act of kindness to a fellow person in memory of Thomas, who always liked to give and help.
