Tom Lacy Otto Obituary
Tom Otto passed away on Friday, October 6, 2017 at home. He was born in Los Angeles on October 30, 1941 to Lorraine and James Otto. He attended South Pasadena schools and graduated from South Pasadena High School in 1960. In 1964, he married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn Hardenbergh Otto. Tom graduated from CSULA with degrees in Business and Economics. He spoke frequently about his professors and it was there, where his love for all things math grew. He enjoyed helping people, hunting, photography, flying with his friends, camping, animals, cars, green tea Frappuccinos, and cigars. He never met a stranger, just a friend he hadn't met yet. He is survived by his wife, Carolyn, and his two children, Julie Otto and Tom Otto, Jr. (Ruthie), and four beloved grandchildren: Sam, Jacob, Rosie, and Warren. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, 90 Park Ave., 16th Floor, NY, NY 10016. A service honoring Tom's life will be held at 2 PM on Thursday, November 16th, 2017 at The University Club in Pasadena.
