Town of Vauxhall council and staff are saddened to hear of the unexpected passing of our fellow councillor, Barry Thomson. Barry was elected to Vauxhall town council in the fall of 2021, and was passionate about making our community a safe and inclusive environment for all. We will remember Barry as a quiet and kind man, and are thankful for the time we were able to serve our community together.
We extend our deepest sympathies to Barry’s family and friends during this difficult time. Our thoughts are especially with you this Christmas season.
In a statement to the Vauxhall Advance, Mayor Ray Coad stated ““He was passionate about his calling as a quiet member of council. He had his heart in the right place, and was doing his best to represent the town and the citizens of the town. We’re going to miss him.”
