April 19, 1947 ~ December 15, 2017

Tom passed of an accidental death. He was born in Vancouver, WA; and was a longtime resident of Portland, OR and Vancouver. He graduated from North Catholic HS and Portland State University. He used his talents in the grocery industry prior to his co-ownership of Shop-N-Kart, and well after into his Costco career.

Tom enjoyed his dogs (Mocha, Hershey, JB), Hot Rods, friends and family. He always had Beaches/PIR and Long Beach Rod Run on the calendar. He helped and encouraged many throughout the AA family and life in general. Always one to help others, but had trouble asking for help himself. Tom will be missed beyond what words can express, and we lost him too soon.

He is survived by his daughter Dawn (Aaron) Spillman; ex-wife Carmen Dunlap; stepson Richard Cagley; grandson Zane Cagley-Wilson; uncle and aunt Gene and Fran Munson; cousins Molly Zinda, Jan Bennett, Lori Melnick, MaryKay Syverson. He was preceded in death by his parents Donald and Kathryn Dunlap.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to West Columbia Gorge Humane Society or Panda Paws Rescue.

Celebration of life will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2018 from 2:00 -4:00 p.m. at the Firstenburg Community Center, 700 NE 136th Ave., Vancouver, WA 98684
