2016-2017 Chairman's Award - Thom Stork (In Memoriam)
We lost a great man and a great leader earlier this year. Thom Stork passed away at the young age of 68 after a long battle with cancer.
Thom dedicated his career to the attraction industry and was also a steadfast promoter of tourism into Florida. As a two-time Chairman of this Association from 1991-1993, Thom was committed to supporting and advancing Florida attractions and the FAA. Thom truly believed that growth in tourism benefits all and that attractions are stronger working together in partnerships and alliances.
Thom was a committed and proud family man. He and his wife Donna cherished their two children, Christopher and Erica and their three grandchildren, Judah, Tajai and Imani. The FAA is proud to honor Thom's memory with this recognition.
