Thomas Lathrop Davis

Thomas L. Davis passed away on March 11, 2016, in Marin County, California. He is survived by his wife, sister, children, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska on October 8, 1941 to John and Elaine Davis, Tom was a sixth generation Omahan and a direct descendant of another Thomas Davis who, after picnicking on the banks of the Missouri River with friends, decided to donate the proceeds necessary to charter the city of Omaha in 1854.
Tom spent most of high school at Choate college-preparatory in Wallingford, Connecticut before graduating from Omaha Central High School. He then left the Midwest and went off to California for college. Tom got his early taste of California during summers spent in La Jolla with his family along with the Beach Boys music through the roaring '60s. Tom loved being on the scene where cultural revolutions started and often found himself surrounded by those leading the charge, all the while dressed in his blue blazer and khakis.
His love of art, architecture and other cultural pursuits lead to academic careers at both the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Nebraska. He was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity and graduated with a degree in architecture.
Tom Davis was in the executive training program at First National Bank of Omaha and was active in the development of Omaha's Old Market neighborhood during the late 1960s and early 1970s. That experience led him to move onto a life enjoyed as an entrepreneur in Omaha and Northern California.
Moving to Sausalito in the mid-1970s, he immediately knew he had found home in Northern California. He loved its weather, freedom, relaxed atmosphere, cultural diversity, and natural beauty. Tom Davis loved that he could be active all year round, whether it be driving cars, playing tennis, sweeping the leaves in his navy blue blazer or reading the New Yorker in the sun with his cat. He had a knack for making people laugh and because of that and so much more people gravitated towards him in life with great fondness. He will be greatly missed by family, friends, his cat, and acquaintances.
In lieu of flowers, Thomas was a life-long proponent of education, and donations can be made to your favorite educational charity for women and/or children.
