Thomas Courtney Armagost Obituary
THOMAS COURTNEY ARMAGOST 3/15/57 - 6/3/14 Tom Armagost of Riverside, CA, passed away at City of Hope after a six month battle with cancer. He was born in Alexandria, Va to John & Neta Armagost. The family moved to San Marino, CA when Tom was eight years old. His cartoons were published in the San Marino High School newspaper, The Titan Shield, and everyone enjoyed his satirical and political cartoons. Tom graduated in 1975 and continued his studies at Pitzer College (Class of'82) in Claremont, CA. Tom was a film major at Pitzer, while continuing to refine his unique cartooning style. During his time at Pitzer, Tom met his spouse of 25 years, Antonette Zulli. Tom had a brilliant mind and was an extremely gifted writer and artist. His stories were fascinating and he created numerous cartoon characters that had a life of their own. He was a devoted animal lover, from the birds in his back yard trees to the cats he adored. He had the deepest respect and empathy for all creatures. He was a funny, kind and generous soul who left us all too soon. Those who knew Tom will miss his bright light, hearty laughter, and doodles on every piece of paper he touched. Tom is survived by his lifelong love, Dr. Antonette Zulli of Riverside, CA; his mother, Neta Armagost of San Marino, CA; his sister, Kathleen Anderson and his loving aunt, cousins, nieces and nephew.
