Tom died Feb. 15, 2020, at Cordia Senior Living in Traverse City, Mich. Tom was born in Indianapolis, came to us from Shortridge High School, and was an Eagle Scout.

At Princeton Tom joined Tower Club and was a coxswain on the crew. He had never rowed before he joined a group of beginners who worked their way up to the varsity. Oral Miller remembers Tom as an exceedingly friendly crewmate who was also one of Oral’s readers.

After graduating as a history major Tom served with Army Counterintelligence. In 1957 he married Jane Parsons and became an investment banker, first in Indianapolis and then at Princeton Bank and Trust. They raised their family in Princeton, Tom serving as class treasurer from 1975 to 1980 and Jane becoming an honorary class member. In 1998 they retired to Leland, a picturesque village on the northern reaches of Lake Michigan.

In May 2018 Tom and Jane moved to Cordia. Jane passed away unexpectedly, leaving a huge void in Tom’s life.

Tom is survived by daughters Julie Rogers and Amy Rullo, and grandchildren Malcolm Rogers, Joshua Rogers, and Jessica Rullo. His many friends remember Tom as “gentle and easygoing.”
