Thomas Scott Billings (1954-2020)
Born September 20, 1954 to James Austin and Genevieve Lorraine Parker Billings in Washington, D.C., Tom spent his childhood in Lanham, Maryland and attended DuVal High School.
After high school, Tom enlisted in the Army and served in the United States as well as in Germany as an intelligence analyst. Following his service, Tom traveled widely across Europe for an extended period before returning home.
It was in the Army that Tom discovered and developed a passion for computers, coding and gaming, which led to a long and varied career in designing procurement supply and inventory systems. For the past nearly 15 years, Tom worked for a marine service and supply company near Pensacola, Florida.
