Thomas Edward Tieri passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on Jan.

and Joyce Tieri. He grew up with his two siblings, older brother Gerry
and his younger sister Stephennie.

Tom graduated from Orange Glen High School in Escondido, California in

mechanic at automotive dealerships and independent shops. Ever since he
was a little boy, Tom wanted to work with his hands. Tom began obtaining
his ASE Certification while in high school and continued his
certification process throughout his career. The training and skills he
acquired allowed him to do what he loved most by working on cars. He was
great at it and you could trust him. Tom was especially fond of classic
muscle cars, including his first car a 64 Chevelle and while not
considered a "muscle car" he loved his most recent vehicle, a 68

Tom's antics were legendary and those who knew him have their own
