Obituary

In Loving Memory of Thomas Warren Owens September 12, 1961-April 25, 2008

It is with great sorrow that his family announces Thom's passing. Thom grew up in San Diego and graduated from Mission Bay High. He attended SFSU and USC and thoroughly enjoyed his career as a cinematographer.

Many of you around Scripps Ranch knew Thom, a longtime SR resident. He was a familiar face on the softball field, helping not only his daughters, Annie, 18, and Carrie, 13, but their teammates as well. Thom's career involved a lot of travel and precluded him coaching a team, but whenever he was home he was on the field. Thom and his wife, Christie, were known by all as the most generous and gracious of friends, neighbors, and teammates.

You may have encountered Thom at his favorite surf spot, 9th street in Del Mar; walking his beloved dogs, Blink and Rudy; at the Batter's Box with Carrie; at Indian Princesses with Annie; helping at Girl Scout events; or, serving as photographer for Annie's 8th grade graduation party. Thom was always quick to help or loan a surfboard.

Words cannot express how much his family and friends will miss Thom. Thank you to all who attended his memorial service and made the celebration of his life a joyous and touching occasion.
