On August 4,2014, my loving husband of 59 years, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend, left us to continue his Eternal Journey.
His example of integrity, hard work, compassion and love will be remembered.
Tom was born February 24, 1929 to Andrew C. and Tommie B. Autrey in Bisbee, Arizona, the youngest of four children. Tom and his wife Donna joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Oxnard, CA in 1959. They were sealed in the LDS Los Angeles Temple for All Time and Eternity on Dec. 14, 1960.
Tom served in the US Navy aboard the USS McKean Destroyer right out of high school from 1948 to 1952.
He held many positions in the Church but his very favorite was Scoutmaster for LDS Troop 260 in Camarillo, CA. for about six years, where he helped many boys obtain the rank of Eagle Scout.
His farewell service was held August 9th, 2014 at the Redding, CA Stake Center. His Military Service was August 12, 2014, where he was laid to rest at the Northern CA Veterans Cemetery, Igo, CA with military honors.
