It is with great sadness that the family of Thomas George Benjamin announces his passing. A resident of Hammond River New Brunswick, Tom passed away on April 13th, 2016 at the age of 62. Tom was born January 3rd, 1954 in Manchester, New Hampshire to Aubrey and Ruth Benjamin. He attended the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton from 1972 to 1976. Tom worked as a successful salesman and manager for many years. He was an avid outdoorsman, with a great passion for fly fishing. He supported many conservation organizations in a variety of roles including the Atlantic Salmon Federation, and the NB Salmon Council.
