ENO, H. Thomas


In grade 1, some 65 years ago, at Parkside School (Beaverbrook) on Mountain Road, Moncton, Tommy Calkin (Eno) and Kayle Briggs met for the first time. The relationship wouldn’t officially begin until some years later as Tommy was a student at Acadia University, but when it did their love would be boundless and ever lasting. And so, with immeasurable sadness we announce the passing of Harvey Thomas Eno, this past Monday morning at 7:20 at The Moncton Hospital. He had been fighting leukemia seeking remission and his effort in this regard made his family and friends proud beyond words. Tom was the son of the late Hope (Sullivan) and stepson of Dr. George Eno. His loving grandmother, Vera Renton, played a key role in his upbringing and life. He leaves behind his best friend and wife Kayle (nee Briggs), son Shane (Selena Davidson Eno) of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia and sister Michele Eno (Rick Thompson) of Carleton Place, Ontario. He was predeceased in 1982 by his loving son Darren. Tom and Kayle have lived by the adage “Work Hard and Play Hard”. Tom graduated in 1969 from Acadia University (B. Comm.) and went on to become a Chartered Accountant (CPA) with J. A. Marven and Company of Moncton. Tom was always grateful to Mr. Marven for giving him that first “summer job” that led to 10 years of full time accounting with the firm. In 1979 Tom joined the City of Moncton and was in charge of Finance and Administration until his retirement in 2006. For many years until his passing he served as treasurer of the Fundy Trail Parkway Board. Additionally, he was president of the New Brunswick Association for Community Living and a member of the Moncton Hospital Board of Trustees and the Moncton Fourplex. And as far as “Play Hard” goes, Tom enjoyed spending time at the cottage in Grand-Barachois, New Brunswick and winters in New Port Richey, Florida. He was a runner and strong believer in physical strength and fitness, and this lifelong commitment served him well in the final months of his life. His other passionate interests were many and varied and included curling, golf, windsurfing, gardening, and reading. He was an avid and adventurous downhill skier. He loved traveling, especially to Europe. He and Kayle enjoyed many miles over the last eighteen years on their Honda Gold Wing motorcycle traveling near and far. This past summer they even tried their hand at RVing enjoying the summer months at many relaxing campgrounds and visiting family and friends in Nova Scotia and Ontario. In the last several years, Tom turned his focus to motorcycle safety education. His determination here was difficult to categorize as either “Work Hard” or “Play Hard”. Together with 5 other motorcyclists, he started Atlantic Moto Skills and thanks to their efforts there are countless motorcyclists on the roads today riding safely…ATGATT, and Look Twice Save a Life. Tom was dearly loved will surely be missed by all of us and all who new him. The family would especially like to thank Drs. Samad, Mukherjee, and Dow as well as the outstanding staff of both the Dr. Sheldon Rubin Oncology Clinic and 4200 of the Moncton Hospital. Visitation was held at Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (506-858-1995) on Thursday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A Service to celebrate and honour Tom’s life was held at Fergusons Funeral Home Chapel on Friday, November 16, 2018, at 1 p.m. A reception followed in the Funeral Home Reception Centre. Interment in Stilesville Cemetery. Donations to Friends of The Moncton Hospital would be appreciated by the family as would your decision to donate blood to your local blood bank.
