ALCANTAR, THOMAS Carlsbad, CA - Tom, age 70, a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away on Monday, August 27, 2012 surrounded by his devoted family. Tom was born in Prescott, AZ. He completed military service in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, he later went on to work for Bourns Incorporated in Mexico where he met his wife, Susy. They settled and raised two daughters in Southern California. After 15 years of service, he retired from the County of San Diego.

Tom is survived by his loving wife Susy, his two daughters, Cynthia Reed, and Silvia Stamp, his son, Richard Alcantar, and grandchildren, Brandon and Brooke Reed, and Keegan and Delaney Stamp.
