Passing of a Friend

It’s with heavy hearts that we deliver the sad news that club member Tony Soderman has passed away due to complications of recent health issues. Tony was a driving force of our pipe club since it’s inception and served as our club President for many years. Tony was known world-wide for his commitment and knowledge of pipes and pipe collecting, pipe history and developing strong relationships within the pipe collectors community. He will be dearly missed.


Remembrance Planned for Nov 7th

Come join us at the Perfect Ash for a Remembrance and celebration of life for Tony Soderman. Please bring your favorite “Canadian” to smoke and you are encouraged to bring photos and stories of Tony.
