TOMS, LARRY ARTHUR
1951-2009
Larry Arthur Toms
, 58, Pensacola, Florida, passed away on Wednesday, December 9, 2009 due to an aortic dissection. Born in Gander, Newfoundland, Canada, he was the son of Arthur W. Toms and Elizabeth Mina Toms (nee March) and spent his early childhood to teenage years in La Scie, Newfoundland. He started his career in radio communications, navigation and telemetry with the Canadian Marconi Company. From Marconi, he joined Adga Inc, initially as a radio specialist for Hydro Quebec, and subsequently as a ground science office for the National Research Council Canada's rocket range at Churchill, Manitoba. In 1980, his success led him to the Canadian Pacific Railway in Montreal, Quebec where he replaced outdated software with a number of expert systems that were to become the first expert systems to be used by a corporation in its daily operations. In 1987, he left CPR to pursue continued development and marketing of the novel Locomotive Oil Analysis Expert System, working both independently and for GasTOPS Ltd. The culmination of this innovative work was published in his book, Machine Oil Analysis: Methods, Automation and Benefits, now an industry reference book in its third edition. In addition to this text, he developed a training program including videos which he delivered to a number of Fortune 500 companies.
In more recent years, he established with his wife, Allison, Lubrication and Fluid Power, Inc. which published the technical Lubrication and Fluid Power Journal as well as continued to build new knowledge bases primarily for the support of engine maintenance.
In addition, to his active, productive and innovative work life, Larry enjoyed private life with family and friends. He was an avid musician who taught himself to play bass at an early age and the passion for music continued throughout his life. He enjoyed working with his hands - from designing and building replicas of guns and boats for his sons, to fine carpentry projects at home. Always a problem solver with inventive solutions, his most recent project was an off-grid solar photovoltaic and hot water system to power his home. Larry is survived by his wife, Devin (Spring Hill, Tennessee); son, Christopher (Sgt. USMC) (Bristow, Virginia); his mother, Elizabeth (Victoria, British Columbia); twin brother, Maxwell and his wife, Sandra (Carleton Place, Ontario); sister, Karen and her husband, David Wright (Victoria, British Columbia); and sister, Elaine (Halifax, Nova Scotia) as well as an extended family and numerous friends in both Canada and the United States. He was deceased by his daughter, Carolyn and his father, Arthur. There will be a memorial service, on Saturday, December 12, 2009, at 2:00 pm in the Faith Chapel Funeral Home, 100 Beverly Parkway, Pensacola.
