Thomas L.C. de Souza, age 88, of Dorval, Quebec, died peacefully at his palliative care residence on November 24, 2021. He was born in Goa, India, the eldest child of Pascoal and Raminha.

He studied fine arts and chemistry in Bombay and England before coming to Canada in 1965. He worked as a scientist for many years at Paprican (now FP Solutions) and continued his love of oil painting as a longtime member of the Lakeshore Association of Artists and of the Dorval Artists Association.
