Thomas Peter Hussey

Hussey, Thomas Peter

Thomas Peter Hussey of Ottawa, passed away on May 10th 2022 at the age of 75 after a courageous battle with cancer. He is predeceased by his parents, Francis and Mary Hussey and younger brother Eddie Hussey. He is survived by his siblings, Frankie Hussey, Johnny Hussey, Arland O’Hara, Kathy Sutherland, and Danny Hussey.

Tom was a proud and loving father to Jay Hussey (Juke) and Sara Lytle (Chuck). The lights of his life were his grandchildren Sydney, Jake, Sefton and Charlie.

Friends and family will forever reflect on wonderful memories with Tom whenever they hear the sounds of country greats like Merle Haggard, or a bluegrass tune. When a line is cast into a lake or river in the Ottawa Valley, a smile will soon follow for those thinking about Tom’s passion for fishing and the always sage advice he would have for less experienced anglers-or as he referred to them, his friends.

Those close to Tom know him as a self-taught ‘round the bonfire guitar player and a strong advocate for all music that combined a banjo with a glass of wine. He could pick and grin with the best of them and was very proud to have held the title of President of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame from 2018-2021.

Tom had a long career in sales and business management in the paper and printing industry in Ottawa.

A celebration of life will be held with close family and friends, and in lieu of flowers, consideration for donations to the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame would be appreciated. Checks or money orders made out to:  Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame
