"Tommy", the only son of Thomas and Flora Greenhalgh, was born and raised in Banff. Soon after graduating from the University of Alberta with a degree in chemical engineering, he enlisted in the army in July, 1940 and went overseas later that year as a lieutenant for the Royal Canadian Engineers, acquiring his captaincy later while stationed in England. It was in England he met and married an English girl, Constance Rowe December 27, 1944. He later was attached to the Experimental Unit of the R.C.E. and helped perfect the flame-thrower which was used during the D-Day invasion. On April 10,1945 he died of abdominal wounds received in action in Holland during the advance of Canadian 2nd Corps into northern Germany.
