Thomas J. Walsh, 65, of Palm Springs, CA passed away unexpectedly on November 14, 2016. Thom was the son of Thomas J. and Claire Ann Walsh (Toledo, Ohio). Thom was a registered nurse for over 40 years having graduated from St. Vincent School of Nursing in 1974. He subsequently completed his MBA at the University of Redlands and his MSN at Loma Linda California. He served at hospitals, hospice, and long-term care facilities throughout the desert for the last thirty years. Thom worked as a quality control manager and director of nursing for the last twenty years in the desert area. He was preceded in death by his father Thomas and his long time partner Herb Lazenby. He is survived by his mother and his sisters Mary Ann (Terry) Studer, Patricia (Mike) Brown, and brothers Paul (Glenda) Walsh, and Tim Walsh. Thom was also survived by eight nieces and nephews and five great nieces and nephews. He was the best 'big brother and uncle ever', always driven by his desire to aid in the healing of others. He will certainly be missed for his constant support, love, and sense of humor. Entrusted to Wiefels Funeral Home, Palm Springs.
