|Tommy Falls with his mom, Reta.|
Thomas Fall was born in Liverpool on July 24,1916. He was the oldest of 8 children born to Tom Sr and Reta (Harper) Falls. Like for many young men in Liverpool, at that time, boxing became a passion for him. While serving in the army, he won the Canadian Army Boxing Championship 1940-41. After the war ended, Tommy and his wife returned to Canada and made their home in Montreal. Their children include sons Thomas, Randolph and Derrick. One day in September 1948, Tom was arrested by the Montreal Police and beaten to death. It should be noted that, at the same time, Tommy's father Tom Sr was in Liverpool battling cancer and he died in November of the same year. Tommy was buried in Pte. Claire, Quebec a few days after his death. He is buried in the Field of Remembrance, a military cemetery operated by the Last Post Fund.
