Thomas Francis Millea Jr., passed away Monday, February 16, 2015, peacefully and surrounded by love. Tom was born and raised in Bridgeport, Ct, on September 30, 1944. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts from Western Connecticut State University where he began his journey in photography. He moved to the Monterey area in 1973 where he has remained for the rest of his life.
Tom was a well-known Master Photographer who has shown and was collected by many museums and galleries worldwide. He was known for his ability to create exquisite platinum/palladium prints. His most recent work included publishing Book of Palms, and was working on another series in which he completed three of five books, "Yosemite", "Point Lobos" and "Book of Endings".
He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas Francis Millea, Sr. and Mildred Ring Millea.
Tom is survived by his beloved Maria Lindley; his sister, Katherine Stamm; his dear Sofia; and his many, many wonderful friends who provided immense support and friendship, too many to name individually.
"Our hearts keep breaking until they remain open".
Celebration of Life will be announced at a future date.
