Thomas C. Boardman of Boulder, Colo., and formerly of Attleboro, died on Jan. 30, 2013, at his home.

Tom, born on June 5, 1964, was a graduate of Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro and the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Tom had his primary residence in Boulder for more than 20 years.

An accomplished photographer, Tom lived life to the fullest and traveled throughout the world. He loved being near the ocean, and was an avid hiker and mountain biker.

His smile and personality lit up the room and he was loved and adored by friends and family.

Tom worked in the hospitality industry throughout his adult life, most recently at the Hotel Boulderado and A Spice of Life Catering Services. He also volunteered his time planning events for the Boulder International Film Festival.

He is the youngest of six children born to Clare Boardman of Attleboro and the late Harry Boardman. He is survived by his siblings: Nancy Boardman of Solana Beach, Calif.; Timothy Boardman of Attleboro; Jeffrey Boardman and his wife Lori, of New Castle, Colo.; Mary Fallet and her husband Thierry, of Carlsbad, Calif.; Susan Casey and her husband John, of North Attleboro; and his adoring nieces, Kialie Boardman of Providence, R.I., and Sarah and Erin Casey of North Attleboro. Susie Chandler was a loyal companion and friend to Tom throughout his amazing life.

A memorial service will be held in Boulder, Colo. on Saturday, Feb. 16. The family invites extended family and friends to a celebration of Tom’s life on March 2, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Tavern Restaurant on Route 1 in Plainville, MA.
