Tommy Tsafaroff, 66, of Lakeport, passed away January 6, 2015, in a fire at his home from smoke inhalation.

Tommy was born July 7, 1948 in Toronto, Ontario to Thomas and Sophia Tsafaroff, now deceased. He was raised in the historic Guildwood Village located in Scarborough, Ontario. He was a member of the gymnastics and hockey team during his years at Sir Wilfrid Laurier High School. Tommy attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto from 1966 to 1967.

He left college to travel and experience what life had to offer. At age 23 he was working in Hollywood’s film industry as a union set builder, and he remained there for 24 years. In 1997 he moved to Michigan to be with his family. He settled in Lakeport, where he worked for Eastlake Builders as a finish carpenter. Tommy loved his craft and was very talented and creative. He enjoyed the outdoors, but most of all he loved people. He was kind, generous and a gentle soul interested only in making others smile.

He is survived by his two sisters, Debbie Glinski and Carol Tsafaroff-Murray; his niece, Lindsey Vrana; and his nephew, Michael Glinski.

Memorial services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, January 11, 2015 in the Karrer-Simpson Funeral Home with visitation from 1 to 3 p.m. The Reverend Max Amstutz will officiate.
