We here at CandysDirt.com are still mourning the abrupt, shattering loss of renowned builder Tom Greico.
Tom, a Dallas Builders Association Honored Life Director, a CandysDirt.com preferred builder and founding partner of this website, an eclectic Dallas figure, and a brilliant home builder who pioneered modern vision in many Dallas neighborhoods when most of us were just learning what transitional meant, died Jan. 13.
As Phil Crone, Executive Officer of the Dallas Builder’s Association wrote, “Because Tom Greico brought light to every room he entered, his passing is especially difficult to convey.”
For those who wish to honor and celebrate the life of such a wonderful man and accomplished businessman, funeral services have been planned for 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30 at Restland Funeral Home.
“It is particularly difficult for us here at CandysDirt.com. I have personally known Tom Greico for years, meeting him early in my career as a real estate reporter,” said CandysDirt.com founder and publisher Candy Evans. “I toured his first homes in Midway Hollow and East Dallas, and heard him describe what he was creating with a passion few home builders possess, probably due to the fact that he was both an architect as well as a homebuilder. There was a methodology to every angle, and nothing was impossible. Tom had a zest for living and for life, which was translated into his homes. He was also one of the most gracious men you could ever meet. He was naturally happy and brought out the best not just in, but for, everyone he was around.”
