November 19, 1951 December 15, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas Alfred Mares of Colorado Springs, CO on December 15th, 2020 after a battle with Covid-19. A caring and devoted husband, father, step-father, and grandfather, Tom began his life in California on November 19th, 1951 before eventually settling in Colorado. Tom would like us all to remember him as a man of great humor, laughter, and caring. Always one to tell or hear stories, Tom was a purveyor of both tall tales and real adventures. His numerous hobbies included gardening, camping, hunting, and making friends with everyone he met. Throughout his life, Tom prioritized people and whether you called him Papa, Pops, Tom, or any of his other numerous nicknames you could always count on him to be there for you. He will be sorely missed by his wife, Joan, children, Thomas and Richard, step-children, Stephanie McGuffin and Eric Brown, and 5 grandchildren. A memorial will be held in 2021 once the current pandemic has resolved. In lieu of flowers donations will be welcomed to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital using the following link:
