His Life

Scripps Ranch Old Pros - Non Profit Sports Leagues and Community Events Committee

From hosting community bike rides and runs, to raising money for community youth and high school sports programs, the Old Pros are a lively and enterprising group of residents and sports enthusiasts at the heart of the Scripps Ranch community.

Founded by Scripps Ranch residents in 1982 as a way of socializing with friends and organizing local sports leagues, the Old Pros now number more than 300 members and coordinate a broad range of established community events as a IRS approved 501(C)(7) non profit organization.

Tom has been super involved in arranging softball and soccer leagues to holiday concerts in Hoyt Park.  The Old Pros commitment to Scripps Ranch is prominent and visible throughout the year.

15 Years at Hershey Technologies

Sandy Levine and I hired Tom as a developer primarily to support Cardiff TeleForm.  

Tom stayed with the firm for 15 years helping us grow to eventually sell to a Konica Minolta Business Solutions in 2015. 

With Toms assistance and funding from clients including commonwealth of Saipan, US Navy and the State of California the birth of the Hershey Technologies’s XenDocs software product line was born.

Always a devoted a dad and father, Tom also enjoyed a good time with co- workers. See attached picture of Tom at our annual Hershey Halloween party. 

Gone to soon.. he will be missed.
