Tom passed away peacefully with family by his side.

Born in San Francisco, his family then moved to San Carlos when two weeks old. He grew up attending schools there and spending his summers at the Russian River where his grandparents had a home.

Tom was an avid sports fan enjoying the SF Giants, 49ers and Warriors. He also enjoyed playing sports himself with baseball being his favorite. He even played a year of college baseball while at Chico State University. When he no longer played sports himself he belonged to a Fantasy Baseball League, coached youth sports and was often heard voicing frustration during a Giant’s game.

A graduate of Chico State University with a degree in political science and a JD degree from Hastings School of Law, Tom worked for Legal Services and then opened a private practice eventually becoming Mason and Morrison law rm. His primary focus was criminal defense where he felt he could have the greatest impact on helping clients most in need. Helping others was a priority in all aspects of his life.

He enjoyed working with kids whether it was coaching his own sons’ teams, coaching Mock Court for the Ukiah High School team, being president of Ukiah baseball leagues, or being on the board for the building and development of the Alex Rorabaugh Recreation Center. He loved it all!

Tom is survived by his wife Sue of Ukiah, son Matt of Ukiah, son David of San Jose and sister Pat of San Francisco.
