Thomas A. Humble Obituary
Thomas Arthur Humble

Born July 8, 1959 and passed away in the comfort of his Long Beach home on March 28, 2017, surrounded by his loving family, following a brief illness. He was 57 years old.

Thomas A. Humble was born the youngest of four siblings at Torrance Memorial Hospital in Southern California, to James and Kathleen Humble (Hennesy). He is survived by his mother, Kathleen Long; life partner of 22 years, Marc Dowlen; brothers, Jimmy Humble, Richard Humble and spouses; sister, Janice Lamont; nieces, Adriene Humble, Anna Urie, Auriel Cochran, Courtney Garrard, Emily Rasmussen and Jamie Hinchee; great nieces, Hannah, Amelia, Janie, Lilia, Eva, Hazel, Violet, August and great nephew, Oliver; cousins in Northern California, the West family; cousin, Kurt Yontz of Long Beach. He is also survived by his close childhood friend, Nick Sanchez and family, along with many numerous extended family and friends. He will be greatly missed.

Thomas was known for his love of family. He was considered the famlly historian. He always remembered the birthdays and holidays of the large, growing family. He and Marc traveled to different countries around the world sending postcards signed, "Your Ever Lovin' Uncle Thomas" to all of his nieces from wherever he was at the time. He always loved the little ones and adored them like his own. His legacy will go on through the love he gave and shared with family and friends.

Growing up in San Pedro and a graduate of San Pedro High School, he enjoyed many friends from the Thespian Society. As his mother, Kathleen Long, recalls, he was considered a marvelous dancer. All the high school girls loved to date and dance with him. On one occasion, he even dressed up with a friend, Sally, as Raggedy Ann and Andy for the San Pedro parade.

One of his favorite places to visit was Paris, in which he traveled in October 1997 with his partner, Marc Dowlen. He also loved to visit West Hollywood and dance to 70's disco music from the 70's all the way to the present. Thomas was always the life of the party and loved to socialize.

He was also very creative and enjoyed painting, drawing and writing letters to his family. He took pride in his home and garden, working meticulously with attention to detail. He was a marvelous singer, dancer and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a seeker of truth and justice.

In his fight during his brief illness, he stayed strong, never giving up until the very end. He passed with dignity and grace.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017, at 11:00 am with interment services at Green Hlls Memorial Park, Rancho Palos Verdes, in the Sanctuary of Tranquility. A reception immediately following. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
