Obituary Condolences

December 21, 1913 - June 8, 2011

Tom was born to Hattie Ann and George Tomlinson on December 21, 1913 in Siam, Iowa. He was the third of nine children. Brother Benjamin of Clarinda, Iowa and sister Anne Walsh of Sydney, Australia survive. Tom moved to California permanently after World War II. He had lived in Torrance since 1960. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Jean; son, Edward (Kimberly) of Portland, OR; daughter, Anne Holms (Larry) of Placerville; son, John (Maureen) of Westminster; and son, Steven of Torrance. Tom retired from TWA in 1978. He and Jean enjoyed many wonderful trips on TWA both before and after retirement. He volunteered in many political campaigns and one of his fondest memories was attending Ronald Reagan's inauguration in 1981. He also was very active in his church and so appreciated the friendship and support of his church family. He was an Angel fan from the beginning days of the team and stuck with them through thick and thin. Memorial service will be held at St. Mark's Presbyterian Church, Lomita. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to St. Mark's. Please sign the guestbook for Thomas at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
