Tom Owens, Class of 1954

The Alumni Association was notified of the passing of an Alumnus who has been exceptionally dedicated to the school and, through his work with the homeless through the CARA Program, to his fellow man. That Alumnus is Tom Owens of the Class of 1954.

Tom was the beloved husband of Mary Owens nee McWalter, loving father of the late Mary Eileen, Thomas (Sue) Owens, Jr., Julie Owens (Chris) Burns, Michael (Maggie) Owens, Sharon Owens, and Katie Owens (Tim) Mulcahy. He was also the grandfather to 22 grandchildren – Tom, Matt, Reilly, Kevin and Bridie; Blaine, Mary Kate, Maggie and Ellie; Kailey, Michael, Molly and Katherine; Katelyn, Grace, Owen, Cullen and Mary; Anna, Colleen, Timmy and Lauren. Cherished brother in law to Shelia, George (Donna) and Jack.

Tom was the founder of XL/Datacomp, which provided products and services for the IBM midrange computer. Along with this he founded The Owens Foundation in 1985 which focused on helping those who were less fortunate. He also founded The Cara program that focused on helping those effected by poverty. Tom received Leo High School’s Lifetime Acheivement Award in 2018, just one of many honors he has received throughout his life. For further information please click this link to Tom’s Obituary
