Thomas Riskey, a resident of Eagle Colorado, passed away after battling with metastatic cancer. Tom was born to Frank and Helen Riskey in Bellflower, Southern California where he grew up. From a young age Tom was a talented and passionate craftsman. In the fall of 1994 Tom moved to Colorado where he started his businesses, Goodwoods Finish Carpentry, which specialized in trim carpentry, cabinet installation and remodeling. It was in Colorado that Tom built the house in which he would raise his family. When he wasn’t on the job, Tom enjoyed golf, camping, spending time with his family, and would occasionally dabble in day trading. Tom had an affinity for restoring early-2000s Audi AllRoads and maintaining the ones which he gave to his family. Tom is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart Carmen; three children, Kenneth, Kory, and Marybeth; three grandchildren; 8 sisters, and 2 brothers. He will be greatly missed.

    I want to let Carmen and all of Tom’s family know how sorry we were to hear of Tom’s passing. You all are in my prayers. Hold tight to the memories you shared with Tom, and he’ll only be a thought away.
