Obituary Condolences

Thomas Joseph SEDLOCK, C.P.A., J.D., C.F.P. Thomas Joseph Sedlock of Bellevue, WA died unexpectedly on May 6 just days short of his 63rd birthday. Tom was born to George and Norma Sedlock on May 10, 1948 in Lakewood, OH. He moved to the Seattle area in 1967 where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Washington School of Business and then from the UW Law School. He spent the majority of his career as a partner in the accounting firm Clark Nuber where he assisted many of Seattle's top business leaders with tax and accounting advice. Tom became a sought after speaker and taught at the UW. He retired after 25 years at the firm in 2003. Much to everyone's surprise, Tom thrived in the slower pace of retirement and spent as much time as possible at his beloved retreat on Bainbridge Island. He was an avid Husky football and basketball fan and could cite pass completion statistics back 20 years. A voracious reader and with a variety of interests, he had Wikipedia-like knowledge on a variety of subjects including music, sports, astro-physics, and medical research. He will be most remembered for his sense of humor, loud and booming voice, and big heart despite a gruff exterior. He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Greta Sedlock, step children, Matt and Jana Endicott, parents, sister, Janet Wallace, brother-in-law, Rhea Wallace, niece, Kyra Wallace and canine buddy, Junior. We will all miss our Jedi Master. The family is planning a small, private memorial. Remembrances may be made to the University of Washington Foundation.
