Tom Learned
April 25, 1940 - July 5, 2016

Beloved Husband, Father, Friend
 

Tom and Judy were married for more than 50 years. His children's names are Tom Jr., Matt, and Leslie Tomich.

When Judy became ill Tom took care of her everyday, by himself for 10 years or more. Never complained or looked for praise or accolades. It was an honor to get to care for her in his eyes.

Outside of the club, they both were employees of Lucky's. He was a head meat cutter (manager) and she was a store manager, the second female to make store manager. Daughter Leslie would always introduce herself as Tom and Judy's daughter when she was growing up. They were Tom and Judy. Not Tom Learned or Judy Learned, Tom and Judy. They were a pair.

He was kind, generous, caring, funny.  He loved camping, water skiing, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, sprint car races, making beer, cooking meat of all types.  He loved fine whiskey and scotch. He loved jokes. He loved his neighbor. He loved God.

Most of all he loved his family.

Tom went to the Corvette museum after Judy passed away in October of 2011.

He was diagnosed with bladder cancer stage 3, but shortly thereafter stage 4 in the first few month of 2015. Leslie never heard him complain or feel sorry for himself. He was proactive in his medical plan. He did anything and everything the doctors asked of him. He was out of bed on the day of surgery, ready to go, ready for recovery.

In March of 2016 he had back pain, found out in May the cancer had progressed into his bones.

Godspeed Tom

Noland was loved by everyone and adored by his family. He is survived by his wife, Mary; children, Kimberly Adams, Martin Adams, Elaine Knecht, John (Debbie) Phillips and Lorraine (Kelly) Gastaldi; 13 grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren (with more to come).
