Tom Pence left to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 6, 2018. He is survived by his wife Barbara Pence, his son Dan Pence, his wife Mia and four children, daughter Shelly Borba, her husband John and their three children, sister Gail Pence and two children, brother George Pence and five children also Barbara’s children Dave Meyer and Dawn Meyer and their children.
Forty-five years ago as a Marine veteran, Tom brought his family to Escalon from Saugus, California. He then started Tom’s building service which later evolved into Pence Plumbing. Over the years he also spent time as a city building inspector of Escalon. The majority of his working life was spent as a plumbing contractor in and near San Joaquin Valley.
Tom’s passions were first and foremost worshiping God, loving his wife Barbara, and caring for his animals. He will be greatly missed.
For anyone who would like to pay their respects and condolences there will be a day of remembrance on September 30 at 2241 Mission Street, Escalon between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
