In Loving Memory of Tom Ormeny
On Sunday, July 16th, the phenomenal Tom Ormeny passed away.
Tom spent his life making the world around him a better place. He and his wife/life partner, Maria Gobetti, founded The Victory Theatre Center forty-three years ago in 1980, and helped bring over one hundred new plays to life. Countless artists found their voices and artistic paths through Tom’s work. He was a masterful teacher, deeply beautiful actor, the kind of friend everyone hopes to have, and a visionary for the performing arts who left an indelible mark on the Los Angeles theatre community that will live on in perpetuity.
Tom had an impressive career in front of the camera, as well as appearing in thirty television series and many films. He was an accomplished teacher having worked for Disney for a number of years coaching their onscreen talent.
May we all strive to live such a profound life that we can look back and see how many people we helped, how deeply we loved, and how the world is better for us having lived.
