Tom died Aug. 4, 2007, of complications from a 50-year battle with diabetes.
Tom entered Princeton from Deerfield Academy. At Princeton he played soccer for four years and was a member of Ivy Club. His roommates were George Allen, David Montgomery, Jerry Savitz, and Had Talbot. After graduation he served two years as a lieutenant in the Navy. Immediately thereafter Tom married Jane Ritchey, with whom he had a wonderful 47-year marriage, resulting in three sons, a daughter, and 10 grandchildren, of all of whom Tom was immensely proud.
Tom spent most of his career with Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., initially working with the bank's corporate clients. In 1968 he was transferred to Melbourne, Australia, where he served as the bank's representative with its Australian affiliate. Upon his return in 1973, he moved to the petroleum sector and for the remainder of his career worked with clients in "the oil patch."
A fine athlete, Tom evolved into a very competitive golfer in Darien, Conn., Watch Hill, R.I., and even Australia, where he remained a member of the Royal Melbourne Golf Club. A tournament was named in his honor at the Misquamicut Club in Watch Hill.
Tom was intensely loyal to his family and many friends who will sorely miss him. To Jane, his children, grandchildren, and two sisters, the class extends deepest sympathy.
