In the early hours of April 13, 2022, holding the hand of his love and best friend, Tom Smock passed out of this life and moved onto his next adventure.
Born June 19, 1942, in Seattle to Ralph Smock and Mary Cecelia Walsh, Tom began a life that would include countless friends. After high school, Tom served in the U.S. Air Force. Following his honorable discharge, Tom made his home in Idaho enjoying the outdoors when he was not working construction as a heavy equipment operator.
After retirement, Tom and Kay, partners for over 32 years, were members of the Boise Fat Fender Car Club. They enjoyed their RV, fishing, traveling, family, and winters in Yuma. Spoiling his grand kids, woodworking, and making popcorn for Happy Hour were some of his favorite activities. He was a frequent visitor to Harbor Freight and Home Depot to complete his many projects and to add to his extensive tool collection.
Survivors include Kay, “the Kids,” brothers and sisters, grand kids, great-grand kids, nieces, nephews, and friends in Idaho, Arizona, and Canada.
Bowman’s has been entrusted with cremation. Please save June 19—the day that would have been his 80th birthday – for a 1 p.m. memorial service at Tom and Kay’s home.
