Biography:  Tom Tupper’s exuberant spirit & passion for life was loved & adored by many.  His creative energy was infectious & he constantly marveled at nature & it’s amazing beauty.  Passionate about his garden & family he surrounded himself with all things good.  He engaged just about anyone in a friendly conversation & adored creating magical celebrations for his family & many, many friends.

His entrepreneurial style was his way of life & he could never take no for an answer.  He was a man of many ideas & the energy to bring them to life.  He was quite proud of having 4 daughters & was surrounded by their adoring presence as he peacefully transitioned from his 94 years of life on earth.

We love you Papa & celebrate the gift of you that will remain a part of us always.

    I only heard of Tom’s passing today, so apologize for not contacting you sooner. Your dad was a wonderful, colorful man, who was an important part of my Tom’s early life (as were all of you). Tommy and I both had great affection for him. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathy.
