Born in Missoula, Montana, to Edwin Fletcher and Mabel Alberta Burns, he was raised in Spokane, WA, and moved to the Seattle, WA, area after high school. Janet and he were married in 1967 and would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June, 2017. He leaves behind sons Dennis, with grandson Andrew, and Kyle (Britt Louise), with granddaughter Annika. Tom worked several years at Nord Door in Everett. He retired from the job he truly enjoyed, driving buses for Everett Transit. He made many friends there with whom he stayed in touch in retirement. He and Janet used retirement to travel throughout the United States, also Canada, Europe, and South America. At his request, no services will be held, but friends and family are invited to remember Tom on Sunday, January 15, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. at the family home.
