Thomas Eugene Amen Obituary
July 12, 1939 - April 15, 2017 Surrounded by his loving family, Dr. Thomas E. Amen passed away quietly in Mission Viejo, CA, on the morning of April 15, 2017. He was 77 years old. Born and raised in San Bernardino, CA, Dr. Amen graduated from the Southern California College of Optometry in 1964, and went on to open a number of successful practices in cities across Southern California, eventually settling in Mission Viejo, where he practiced continually for over 45 years. In his private life, Dr. Amen was an avid golfer, cyclist, fisherman, sailor, snow-skier, and outdoor enthusiast. However, Dr. Amen was most interested in people, and it is this quality that has endeared him to so many. He was truly an exceptionally warm, friendly, funny, and engaging human being, and will be deeply missed by those fortunate enough to have known him. Dr. Amen is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Owena Amen, three adult children, Thomas Amen, Michael Amen, and Julie Amen Stremel, and son-in-law, John Stremel. Dr. Amen also leaves behind numerous extended family members, and countless life-long friends and acquaintances. Services will be private. The family has asked that those wishing to express their appreciation for Dr. Amen's life and legacy do so by making a contribution in his name to PGA Junior League Golf.
