After years of experience with organizations like Arco Refinery and the City of Chino Hills California, we were fortunate to nab this seasoned IT professional to oversee all technical needs for Ambassador and Amb-OS.
Tom and his wife, Nancy (married nearly 40 years) have three grown children. Two sons are best friends and live side-by-side with their own families (five grandchildren total) in Seattle WA. (Fun fact—Bryan is Roger Kemp’s son-in-law; Nate is a member of the AAA crew!) Daughter, Noelle, is studying at nearby Vanguard University with the goal of becoming a Kindergarten teacher.
When Tom and Nancy met it wasn’t exactly love at first sight! She was a Christian and Tom was having nothing to do with Christianity or church. But in time he realized Nancy had what was missing in his own life. He says, “I came to realize I needed what God had to offer.” We couldn’t be more grateful!
The Bedsons live in Costa Mesa, home of Calvary Chapel where Tom was rooted as a young believer and where they attend today.
From the leisure side of life, Tom admits:
With a free afternoon . . . I’d rather be fishing in the mountains!
If I’m reading a book . . . the author on the book jacket is likely to be either C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien.
One item remaining on my bucket list is . . . checking out the “D Day” memorials in France and retracing my dad’s WWII path across Europe. He always said his favorite country was Austria and I would love to visit the places he went through—and spend some time in Switzerland and the Alps too.
