Tommy Lowell Grundy was born in Lubbock, Texas to Doyle and Ruth Grundy on November 2, 1958.

He passed on October 4, 2021, in Houston, Texas at the age of 62.

He is survived by his wife, Maricha Grundy of Houston, TX, his son, Nicholas Grundy of Conroe, TX, his father, Billie Doyle Grundy of Kerrville, TX and his 3 siblings Lola Kay Grundy of Corpus Christi, TX; Cynthia Lynn Garrett of Cedar Hill, TX; and Lonnie Joe Grundy of Temple, TX along with their families.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Ruth L Conklin Grundy of Port Aransas.

Tom professed his faith in Christ at an early age and continued to serve the Lord by modelling the love of Christ toward all those with whom he came in contact. His family, friends, neighbors, business associates, and even employees can testify to the loving and gracious nature he consistently expressed in his everyday life. He was always ready to offer a helping hand to those around him in their time of need.

Tom’s most notable accomplishments include becoming an Eagle Scout at 16 years of age. He attended Sam Houston State University, was inducted into the fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, and graduated from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi in December 1982 with a Bachelor of Business Administration. Tom joined Universal Computer Systems in 1983 (later known as Reynolds and Reynolds), as a member of the Software Installation Department. Tom had a passion for the product. His high aptitude and keen interest in understanding the intricacies of the software and how it benefited his clients rocketed him to leadership roles within the company. After becoming a member of the Sales Department, his superb product knowledge laid the foundation for his phenomenally successful career in sales. His excellent sales skills propelled him into the 100% of Quota Club multiple times and won him a plethora of sales awards over the years. He was highly respected by his peers and was a key contributor to the Sales Department’s successes.

As a young man, Tom grew up on Mustang Island and loved surfing, sailing, scuba diving, shark fishing, and wreaking havoc on his friends as a practical joker. He later developed an aptitude as an amateur astronomer, owning several specialized telescopes and his thirst for knowledge (regarding any content or concept he chose) drove his very existence. His love of laughter entertained everyone around him and distinguished him as the person everyone loved being near, which truly manifested in his life when his wife, Maricha, joined him in his journey.

A visitation for Tommy will be held Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Brookside Funeral Home, 13747 Eastex Freeway, Houston, TX 77039.

Tom and Maricha were our neighbors for many years. Tom brought a whole new meaning to the word neighbor. They became more than neighbors, they were family. Always lending a helping hand at a moments notice. There were many nights I (Chuck) was away from home and Tom was always there to help my wife when a problem arose. We always were ribbing each other during football season and had many laughs doing so. We both moved out of the neighborhood about the same time and we have soo missed the Grundys since. We will always treasure the memories on Hayward Drive with the Grundys. Sending our love from California.
