Early in life, Thomas Christian ’74 made many cherished and lifelong friends who shared his love for school, sports, cars, and adventures of all kinds. He built a respected and successful structural engineering practice. While always hard-working, Tom also found time to pursue his passions for fishing with a special focus and expertise as a fly fisherman. He was proud to have fully built and customized a Model T hot rod while still in high school that was awarded a blue-ribbon trophy at the prestigious Grand National Roadster Show in 1971. The story of Tom’s amazing life would not be complete without a mention of his two loyal and treasured yellow labrador retrievers, Skeet and Chance, with whom he shared many years in the forests, fields, streams, and rivers in pursuit of his love of the rugged outdoors. Tom died on October 19, 2022, and is survived by extended family, including niece Marisa Scordelis ’01.
