THOMAS WALTER WORMAN WAS THE FOURTH CHILD OF FIVE CHILDREN BORN TO SHAWN AND WAYNE WORMAN.

HE CAME INTO THIS WORLD ON JANUARY 8TH 1959 AT THE STANFORD HOSPITAL IN PALO ALTO CALIFORNIA.  THE FAMILY MOVED TO SANTA MARIA CALIFORNIA WHERE HE BEGAN HIS ELEMENTARY EDUCATION.

THE FAMILY MOVED AGAIN TO SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA WHERE HE ENJOYED LEARNING AND PLAYING T-BALL. ANOTHER MOVE WAS THEN MADE TO OROVILLE CALIFORNIA WHERE HE GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL IN 1978.  WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL HE WAS INVOLVED IN CROSS COUNTRY.  LATER HE RAN THE MARATHON RACE AT BIDWELL PARK IN CHICO CALIFORNIA AND COMPLETED THE EVENT! (AND IN GOOD POSITION)

HE ENJOYED FISHING AND TARGET SHOOTING WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, BUT ENJOYED EATING THE MOST!  AT SPECIAL FAMILY GATHERINGS WHEN OTHERS WERE WAITING FOR SECONDS, TOM WAS ASKING FOR THIRDS!

HE HELD MANY DIFFERENT JOBS DURING HIS LIFETIME BUT THE FONDEST MEMORIES WERE AS CUSTODIAN AT HIS ALMA MATOR, OROVILLE HIGH SCHOOL, FOR 16 YEARS.  HE WAS LIKED AND APPRECIATED BY STAFF AND STUDENTS ALIKE. HE ALSO ENJOYED SERVICE IN THE NATIONAL GUARD.

TOM HAD A KEEN SENSE OF HUMOR AND FORMER CLASSMATES AT REUNIONS STILL COMMENT HOW HE MADE EVERYONE SMILE.

HE LEAVES BEHIND HIS FATHER WAYNE, OLDEST SISTER ANN WALTERS (JOHN), OLDER BROTHER KEN (JUDY), MIDDLE SISTER JANET CARR (MIKE), YOUNGEST SISTER DIANE HOLLAND (FRED) AND NUMEROUS NIECES AND NEPHEWS AND EVEN GRAND NIECES.

HIS GREATEST LEGACY IS SURELY HIS DAUGHTER, AUTUMN NICOLE BOWLBY (JOEL) AND HIS TWO GRANDCHILDREN, KENDALYN AND HENRY WHO HE ADORED AND OF WHOM HE IS EXTREMELY PROUD!

MATERIAL THINGS WERE NOT OF PRIME IMPORTANCE TO TOM, BUT HE HAD A LOVING HEART AND GENEROUS SPIRIT AND WOULD GLADLY SHARE ANY THING HE HAD WITH ANYONE ELSE, AT ANY TIME.

HE WILL BE SORELY MISSED BY EVERYONE WHO KNEW HIM AS A TRUE FRIEND.

PRIVATE CELEBRATION SERVICES WERE HELD IN HIS HONOR.
