Tom Carline completed his physical life on August 23, 2014. Born in McGill, NV in 1933, he attended White Pine High School in Ely, NV and graduated from The University of Denver after which he taught and coached at Gunnison CO High School before serving in the U.S. army in Germany from 1957 to 1959. He then was a General Manager with New York Life Ins. Co. for 14 years in Boulder, CO.
Tom married his high school sweetheart Glenna Thompson of Ely in 1955. Tom was always thankful for growing up in McGill where Kennicott fostered wonderful athletic programs that served so many of his generation well in gaining scholarships for future growth. His love of baseball is well known, and it served him well.
Their love of the high mountain country prompted Tom and Glenna to make the Nederland CO area their home and in the early 1970’s formed Nederland Realty and were Real Estate Brokers there for the next thirty years. Tom’s expertise in real estate was brokering large land and retreat properties. He also developed Sunnyside Subdivision in Nederland and was the log home representative in the building of The Lodge at Nederland and several log homes throughout the area. He enjoyed civic life; served on numerous boards and as President of the Nederland Chamber of Commerce.
Tom leaves love and fond memories with his many friends, Glenna and their two sons Eric Kenneth Carline of Littleton, CO, Thomas Glenn Carline and daughter-in-law, Michelle Carline of Grand Junction, CO. Tom’s parents, Mary and Domenic Carline and his brother Don Carline preceded him in death.
He is survived by an Aunt, Josie Zakula of McGill, NV, two nieces, Mary Lida Carline-Gilkinson of Ft. Collins, CO; Shelly Harvey of Vancouver, WA and also by several very special cousins and in-law families.
The Carline family would like to thank our relatives and friends for their love, caring and presence in Tom’s life and in ours, especially throughout this “long goodbye” of several years. We have been blessed, not only for the wonderful years with Tom, but by the abundance of beautiful memories expressed about him by so many.
Memorial donations in Tom’s name may be made to the Mayo Clinic Arizona Alzheimer’s Research Program, 13400 E. Shea Blvd. Scottsdale, AZ 85259.
