Thomas L. Doubts passed away on April 10, 2021 at the age of 65.

Thomas was born in Camden, New Jersey on December 15, 1955 to Gerald and Grace Doubts.

Tom received a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Drexel University in 1983 and spent over 40 years as an Aerospace Engineer, with expertise with drive systems and gear boxes. His career included positions in Engineering Management, Research and Development, and Manufacturing Support. What he really loved was mentoring younger engineers in the area of gear research and design.

He worked for Honeywell, GE Aviation, Curtiss Wright, Rolls-Royce, Boeing, McDonnel-Douglass, Bell Helicopter, and Kaman Aerospace to name a few. He was an inventor and innovator in his field, with several patents to his name. He held board positions for AGMA and ASME Gear Research Institute.

He loved Dobermans, cooking, travel, cars, taking photographs, gadgets, and was skilled in all things mechanical – proving very handy at doing projects around the house.

He is survived by his sister, Nancy Schmidt, wife, Carrie Doubts, and step-daughter, Ilana Tel-Oren.

Services are being held Friday, May 14, 2021 at 10 a.m. at Legacy Funeral Home Rose Chapel 1130 S Horne Mesa, AZ 85204.

    Please accept my condolences to Tom’s family and loved ones. I worked with Tom at Emerson in the early to mid 90’s and saw him a couple of years back at an AGMA meeting. He was a delightful person and always had a smile on his face.
