ForeverMissed
Tom was born in New York, but later moved to San Diego, where he built a successful career (TFL Inc.) and raised a family. He retired to Oregon to spend his last year with his children. 

Tom kicked cancer's butt for 21 years and was a fighter and survivor; Rocky Lennon. He was the most optimistic and generous man. He smiled and laughed effortlessly. He never met a stranger, and everyone whose path he crossed instantly fell in love. He was incredibly intelligent. He read the paper cover to cover every morning and could easily work out math problems in his head, leaving those around him shamefully counting on their fingers. He took his generosity and brilliant mind and applied them to his work as a Court Appointed Receiver. He was especially proud of the pro bono work he did to help save San Diego's Symphony and the fact that this accomplishment earned him a place in Wikipedia.

He was involved with numerous organizations through the years, sitting on many boards, and donating his time and money to causes that were dear to his heart. He never turned away a friend in need. 

Tom enjoyed golfing, fishing, and hustling pool. He delighted in beating everyone at Scrabble. He possessed an amazing sense of humor and occasionally attempted to cheat at games. He got the biggest kick out of playing the wrongly accused when he was caught. He was a huge fan of the San Diego Chargers and Padres. He craved adventure and loved to travel. He saw beauty in the desert landscape and found peace whenever the ocean was near. 

Most of all, Tom loved his daughters, granddaughter and son-in-law. 

He only loved his Heavenly Father above his family. He trusted God to care for him and expressed no concern over what his future held. He knew God was in control of his life. 

"I will lift up my eyes to the mountains. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2

A non-profit foundation has been established in Tom's name. The Tom Lennon Foundation 501(c)(3) at Singblue.org.

Pa Tom...you are, and always will be, my best friend. Knowing you is the greatest blessing of my life. When God chose you to be a part of our family, He picked the closest thing to an angel He could find. You are the kindest, warmest, gentlest, and most caring person I have ever met. I miss you every single day. The spark of magic that you brought to every day sometimes feels like it left with you...but I know it lives on forever through stories, memories, and the multitude of people you touched during your time here. Heaven is now graced with that light. I can’t wait for the day that I get to watch you shine even brighter in perfect. I can’t wait to spend every day with you, holding you close and never letting go. This world Is better off for your presence in it, and I am so thankful that I had the honor of knowing you.

Happy birthday. I love you infinity.

Happy Birthday Tom!

I don't think a single day goes by that we don't think about you. We are missing a huge piece of our family with you gone, yet at the same time you were such an amazing influence in all our lives, in some ways it’s like you never left. We see you in the way we live our lives, how we treat others, on special days we think of what contribution you would have added, and you still have a room in our home, you will never be forgotten and we will always honor your legacy. You changed the trajectory of my life in so many wonderful ways and I will be forever grateful for your love and encouragement. I know you were called home because you were a good an faithful servant and we can’t wait to see you again.

Happy Birthday, Dad! You always loved to celebrate big, and while we cannot beat the party in Heaven, we are celebrating you with love, memory, honor and a Marrionberry Pie! We have missed you a bit extra this month. It’s interesting how grief evolves. It lessens only in frequency, not in strength. In fact, it gains momentum as we move further away from our last moments together on earth and one moment closer to being reunited in Heaven. It’s an odd longing for what was and what is to come-living both in the past and future. I love you more with each passing day, respect you, try and honor you and make you proud. Your legacy will stand the test of time as each new generation learns to be kind and generous. You began a chain reaction, how many lives you have changed we will never know. Just know that you changed mine. I am a better person because I am your daughter. I love you to Heaven and back, my partner in crime. Your Apple.
