Tom Goodchild


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our Sawmill Prime Rib & Steakhouse founding President, Tom Goodchild, on Wednesday June 29, 2022.
Tom was loved and respected by his family, friends, team members and business community and it cannot be put into words the sudden loss that will be felt by his passing. Tom was a true hospitalitarian and wore his Company brand and industry passion on his shirt sleeve daily.
For all of us who were blessed by knowing Tom and his lifelong commitment to the foodservice industry, the Goodchild family is dedicated and will continue to operate growing on that dream Tom envisioned 46 years ago.

The Goodchild Family.

Tom’s celebration of life will be held Tuesday, July 19 at 2:00pm at OTS Park. (2104 – 156 Street SW, Edmonton, AB T6W 1A4)
