Thomas O. Boorman Obituary
Thomas O. Boorman, 81 of Lincoln, CA passed away December 11, 2013 at the Fountains in Yuba City.

He was born June 2, 1932 in Wayland, New York. He was a resident of Lincoln, South Forbes Rd., "Hummingbird Hill" in the Thermalands for 40 + years.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Mary Boorman of Wayland, NY; his wife of 52 years, Gloria; his son, Sandy Boorman; and sister, Betty Radesi of New York.

Tom served our country for a total of 30 years, 4 years in the Navy in a mine sweeper, and 26 years in the Air Force, serving as Senior Master Sgt. Combat crew member on B52 - over 500 missions.

After he retired from the military service, he always said he "jumped from the frying pan in to the fire." When he joined the Placer Co. Sheriff's Department, he served for a few years then moved to Folsom Prison as a control officer.

Tom was an avid adventurist. He was a life member of NRA. One of his greatest thrills was meeting Charlton Heston.

The last few years, he was active with friends and family, camping, quading, fishing, and traveling, right to the end.

He was a life member of SASS (Single Action Shooting Society), and the Brushie Creek Rangers (Blk. Power Gun Club).

Tom is survived by his loving companion, Suzanne Hodges of Olivehurst, CA; grandson, Jason Boorman and wife Jennifer of Chico, CA; former daughter-in- law, Donna and her husband, David Simmons and extended family: Justin and Amy Fishell and their sons, Mikhail and Titus of Paradise; Mark Simmons, Daniel Simmons, John Simmons and Hannah Simmons; Eric and Rachael Miller and their sons, Andrew and Austin of Olivehurst; and John and Jennifer Kirkpatrick of Corning, CA.
