Statement from Tom Feeney's family
My name is Colin Lohrer (Son-in-law)
I am here today – on behalf of my family – to support the RCMP’s efforts in determining who is responsible for this unthinkable crime.
Dad was born and raised in Rossland. He was a father, grandfather and great grandfather who loved to hunt and fish and enjoy the outdoors. In his younger years he loved to curl and had the opportunity to curl at the Brier. More than anything he loved to sit and tell a good story.
We are all in shock to know he has been taken away from us in such a tragic way. It has been a devastating blow to our family.
We need to know why this happened and we need the individual or individuals responsible to be identified and charged.
On behalf of the Feeney family – I would like to express that we need your help. Please have a look at the photos of the items missing from Dad’s place. If you have any information about the items or about this murder investigation – please, please, please call the Tipline and police.
We would like to thank the public and friends for their thoughts and support. While we continue to work through our unimaginable grief, we do ask for the media to respect our privacy.
