It is with very heavy hearts that we all learned of the recent passing of Tom Oliveri. As an advocate for all things benefitting agriculture, “Tommy O” spent four decades helping, teaching, advocating, and assisting anyone and everyone in the produce trade. Tom worked tirelessly to help make the all-important agricultural industry function at the highest level possible.
We at Rynn & Janowsky had the privilege of working closely with Tom for the past two years, after he retired from his long career at Western Growers (where we also took advantage of his vast knowledge for the better part of that 40 year career). We were moved by the passion and vigor that Tom brought every day to his work.
We are all still in shock, and we join with so many in the produce industry in offering our deepest condolences to Tom’s family. For a full obituary and to leave the family condolences here. To read Western Growers’ tribute to Tom, please click here.
