Memories Timeline


  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. We pray that your memories of Tom bring you comfort during these difficult times.

  2. I can scarcely remember a time at the Agency when I didn’t know Tom. He was a totally delightful man – one of the funniest and most fun I worked with. But besides that he was a consummate professional. I shall miss him. My sympathies go out to his family. Remember what a wonderful person he was and be comforted. It was better to know him for this all too short a life than never to have known him at all.

  3. One of a very small handful of visionaries who understood the new world outside the bunker. Tom, we mourn your passing before your time.

  4. I am so very sorry to hear about Tom’s passing. He was a great person who always had a smile on his face. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  5. As a fellow CIA careerist, I remember Tom Armour for his quick intelligence, awesome scientific and technical knowledge, and boundless energy. I recall his determinaion to make his exceptional talents count for the good of the agency and his country. Tom was a major contributor to the development of important S&T progams that cut across the directorates of CIA and the agencies of the intelligence community. His family has much reason to be proud. He commanded great respect from colleagues and customers across the government, and from our liaison services abroad. I also remember Tom affectionately as a thoughtful and decent man of character and wit, with whom it always was a pleasure to work. He was good humored, upbeat, and considerate. Tom was blessed with exceptional intellectual and technical abilities. He wanted to give back. He did in abundance. I am grateful to have witnessed the remarkable career achievement of this talented guy.(I regret that I am in Atlanta this weekend and will not be be able to pay Tom tribute in person at the funeral home. I will be at this service at Arlington on 21 March.)
