Thomas C. Hiers, 79, of Rogers, Arkansas passed away Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
Thomas served his country for four years as a flight mechanic in the United States Air Force. After completion of his duty, he met the love of his life, Barbara Larson, a native of Bendena, Kansas, and the two wed on February 5, 1962, in Denver, CO. The couple soon settled in California where Thomas held a management position in the System and Programming Department at Certified Grocers until his retirement. He believed in living life to the fullest and demonstrated this zeal through extensive travel across the United States in their motorhome, boating, motorcycling and trap shooting. Hobbies were not just spare time activities; they were purposed. Dedicated hours spent keeping up with and expanding his knowledge of the latest technology to handcrafting tools to accomplish a task also speak to this zeal and the belief that he could continue to learn and grow, no matter the season of life.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara Larson Hiers; one sister, Danice Day of Denver, NC as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
