Thomas Dean Carney
Thomas Dean Carney Palm Desert - Thomas Dean Carney, 75, beloved brother, uncle and friend, passed away peacefully January 7, 2019, in Palm Desert, CA. He was born in Albuquerque, NM, November 29, 1943, to Elda Leona Sandt and Thomas Bernard Carney. The birth and death of this man are not nearly as relevant as all the days and nights he lived life to the fullest between these two dates. As a young boy growing up in the north valley, Tom learned independence and thrived in the natural world awaiting him outside the back door. Upon the death of his father when he was 11 years old, Tommy Dean quickly became the man of the house. Tom developed an interest in cars while attending Highland HS. He graduated in 1961 with the beginnings of a car collection, storing the overflow in his sister's barn. He enjoyed the outdoors in all seasons, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, and camping. His favorite places were the cabin he was restoring in the Sandias or the mountain lodge he shared with friends in Colorado. An adventurer at heart, Tom loved to travel and explore new places, from the ghost towns of New Mexico to destinations abroad. Tom embarked on a 30-year career in banking in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, rising to vice president. He discovered the most rewarding aspect of his position was helping others achieve their goals. Tom never met a stranger and the personal and business relationships he made lasted throughout his life. After moving to Palm Desert, Tom found his greatest joy - working for free. He volunteered for nine years working with patients at the Renker Wellness Center. Along with his colleagues, Tom helped sponsor golf classics, polo matches, and the McCollum Theater charity events and productions. He embraced his community and all those in it for almost 30 years. Holding Tom's memory in our hearts, are his sister, Lee Ann and husband Marvin Ozmun, nieces, Darlene and Sharen, great-nephews, Cody and Ian, a large extended family and more friends than can be mentioned. Tom is predeceased by his parents, favorite nephew Kenneth, and his beloved dogs. Services were held in Albuquerque where Tom was laid to rest along side his parents. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date in Palm Desert, California.
