Thomas A. Scheer of Lawrenceville, GA, formerly Chappaqua, NY, passed peacefully on the 23rd of July 2020, after fighting a surprise cancer diagnosis days before. Tom was 62 years old. He is survived by his wife Patricia, sons Andrew and Matthew, mother in law Virginia Shary, brother Michael, his wife Leah, and their children Amanda and Kelly. Tom had a long and successful career in Human Resources. Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Tom loved his neighborhood, Cooper’s Pond, cooking, playing ALTA tennis, cheering for the Yankees, hanging at the beach, particularly in St. Augustine, listening to music, psycho-tourism with the family, playing, watching (and napping to) golf. We sincerely thank you for your thoughts and prayers. At this time, there is no planned service due to COVID.

  1. I was shocked and saddened to learn of Tom’s sudden passing. I got to know him as a ALTA tennis partner and that fostered a cordial friendship over many years. I knew anytime I was paired up with Tom, it was going to be a great day on the courts. I will miss our good-natured ribbing and conversations. My heart goes out to the entire family as I grieve with you for this fabulous human being. RIP, Tom.

  2. I worked with Tom at the Board of Regents office. I was saddened by this news. Tom was a great guy and will be missed! My thoughts and prayers go to out to his family.

  3. CandleImageTom and I had a brief encounter prior to his passing. He made an impact on me and my entire organization that got to know him. I wish my thoughts and prayers would provide a light that Tom was a true man of his word and his actions. I know he has impacted others even greater and this saddens me that he will be missed. As a son who lost his father this year, to the boys keep him high and remember everything he helped you to be successful in life. Patricia my thoughts have been with you.

  4. CandleImageI only heard of Tom’s passing today. I worked with Tom at Rare Hospitality more than 10 years ago, and our paths crossed again 2 years ago when he called me to see if I was interested in helping stand up a Compensation department at a new company called Kindred at Home. Not only was it an opportunity to grow my career, it was an opportunity to work again with Tom, who was more than just a boss. He was a friend. He helped me in my career and personal life – often more than he knew. Plus, I always had a good time ragging on his beloved Yankees.

    I owe Tom a lot, and am deeply saddened at his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, whom I only met briefly, but Tom talked about them a lot. He loved Patricia deeply, and was so very proud of his sons.

    Thank you, Tom. I will miss you.

  5. I am shocked and saddened beyond words. Tom was a teammate at Grady and though he liked the wrong NY baseball team, we agreed on most everything else. God’s blessings and healing for his family.

  6. CandleImageI am very sad to hear of Tom’s passing. His family and friends are in my prayers. Peace and healing for his family.
