Thomas Richard Voll was born September 21, 1951, and grew up in Deerfield, Illinois. His passions for family, nature, music, and electronics started young and were well nurtured by the Voll family, the Boy Scouts, his schools, and the Deerfield First Presbyterian Church.

As a Purdue University educated Electrical Engineer, Tom participated in the invention of the microchip on his first job with Intel Corporation. He devoted the second half of his career to bringing cell phone services to island nations in the South Pacific.

Brought together by their love of family, nature and the work of Carl Jung, Tom married his childhood minister’s daughter in 1995. Together, Tom and Leota Ann brought the Chartres Labyrinth to churches throughout the state of Oregon.

After moving to Boulder in 2002, Tom and Leota Ann participated in founding the Boulder Friends of Jung.

Retiring in 2012, Tom devoted his last years to enjoying his family, working as a volunteer park ranger for Boulder County Parks and Open Space, singing baritone for Cantabile Singers, and participating in St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church.

Tom will be dearly missed by his wife, Leota Ann Didier Voll, his children Katherine and Chris Yorks, grandson Cameron, brother Bob and family, and his friends.
