Tom died on St. Patrick's Day at the age of 80.  

Tom grew up in Seattle Washington and graduated from Queen Anne High School; he moved to San Jose in 1956 and graduated from San Jose State University.

He and his wife moved to Los Altos in 1971 and lived there until October 2013. He was in the material handling business and started his own company, Tom Walsh & Associates, in 1976, which he operated until 2013.  

Tom is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Nancy; his children, Elizabeth (Rick) Case and Jennifer (Mark) Isola; and his grandchildren Megan and Joseph Isola. He also leaves his sister Donna Kole.  

Tom's hobbies included working on his 1936 Ford hot rod and walking his dogs around town.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Alzheimer's Association.
