Tommy Armijo (74) passed away on December 3rd at his home in Lakeside, Arizona after battling a long illness. He and his wife Beatrice have been residents of the White Mountains for almost 20 years.
Tom was involved in local hot rod car clubs in Arizona and New Mexico. He built three custom 1930’s hot rods (only Ford!) that he loved to show. He was a sergeant in the Marine Corps Reserves and loved to share stories with his grandkids about his time in amphibious recon and Airborne jump school training. As a career, Tom worked for Allstate Insurance Company for almost 30 years in sales and management. Dad was the original “teach a man to fish” guy and was most proud of inspiring success in others, especially his daughter, son-in-law and eldest grandson who all followed him into business. Known for his humor, storytelling, love of his grandchildren and the outdoors, Tom will be dearly missed by a large circle of friends and family.
He is survived by Bea, his high school sweetheart and wife of 52 years, their son Chrystopher Armijo, daughter Alisa Flickinger (husband John) and grandchildren Mercedes, Michael, Bella, Catherine, and Jack. He is also survived by four brothers and a sister, Steve (wife Kathy), Jerry (wife Pearl), Len (wife Elizabeth), Michael and sister Dorothy as well as brother-in-law Richard Baros (wife Jeana) and dozens of nieces and nephews. Tom is preceded in death by parents Melquiades and Mary Armijo and parents-in-law Frank and Dolores Baros.
The family would like to extend gratitude to the wonderful care provided by Compassus Hospice during the last year of his life and in lieu of flowers we ask for donations to go to Compassus Hospice in Pinetop-Lakeside.
