Henry Thomas Lau, of Peachtree City
Henry Thomas Lau, of Peachtree City, Ga. died unexpectedly Thursday, Dec. 15, 2011 at Piedmont Fayette Hospital.
Born in Philadelphia, Pa. on Aug. 21, 1950 to Henry and Dorothy Lau.
Tom graduated from Swarthmore High School in 1968. Tom was the captain of the track team, member of the boys' basketball team, and a member of the varsity club for athletes.
He studied business administration at the University of Delaware. He moved to Atlanta Ga. in 1970 to open a Crown gas station. After the tragic event in 1978 that changed his path in life, Tom received his diploma from The Georgia Computer Program Project in 1983 and then later started his career at SunTrust Bank in 1987 as computer programmer analyst.
Tom had many interests, but the ones that we remember most were his devotion to his family, spending time at Huddleston Pond to relax, watching his birdfeeders around his home, and listening to his wind chimes.
Tom is survived by his son, Thomas Lau and wife Tracy Lau; daughter, Marie Edwards and husband Rodney Edwards; grandchildren, Heather Proffitt, Tommy Lau, and Courtney Lau; great-grandchildren, Nathan Proffitt, and his newest survivor will be his unborn great grandchild due on July, 3, 2012.
Tom's final wishes were honored by not having a formal service and he was laid to rest on Monday, Dec. 19, 2011 at Westminster Memorial Gardens in Peachtree City, Georgia.
In lieu of flowers, just remember he is RUNNING with the Lord now.
