Thomas ‘Tommy’ John Horcher
First sunrise Nov. 10, 1984
Last sunset July 12, 2021
Tommy was born in Illinois and moved to California with his Mom and Dad when he was two years old. He lived in California for 24 years until he moved to Kaua‘i in 2009 to be closer to his Dad and Step-Mom. He was the owner of All Island Adventures, “Creating Memories that Last a Lifetime”.
Tommy is survived by his Mother Janey Dawson Smith (Steve), his father Don Horcher (Sharon), his sisters Ashley O’Malley (Sean) and Caity Bailey, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and an abundance of friends.
Tommy had an infectious smile, a heart of gold, found humor in everything and was the king of one-liners. He was a true San Francisco Giants fan. He fell in love with the island and all of it’s beauty. Tommy gave his life to save two others and he will be forever remembered as a hero! We love you so much Tommy and we will see you again in Paradise.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Kaua‘i, Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021, at Poipu Beach across the street from Brennecke’s Beach Broiler at 4 p.m.
