Stompin' Tom died at his home yesterday of natural causes. He was 77.
Tom wanted fans to have the following message 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.”
Your Friend always,
Stompin’ Tom Connors
