Tom Arthur Guscott, 63, passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018 in Sandpoint, Idaho. A memorial gathering of family and friends will be held at Arlo’s Restaurant, on Feb. 2, 2019, at noon.
Tom was born on Aug. 9, 1955, in Spokane, Wash., to Herb and Joyce Guscott. He was raised in Spokane and attended North Central High School. After graduation, he moved to Tacoma, Wash., and began working for Kinney Shoes. When promotions came and his job title changed, so did his location. He moved with the company to Anchor-age, Alaska, Los Angeles, California and then to New York City.
While living in New York, he met the love of his life, Lisa Arlo. The couple married in 1985, and three years later welcomed the birth of their son, Jesse. In 2000, the family moved to Sandpoint, and two years later, opened Arlo’s Restaurant.
Tom’s hobbies included playing golf, watching and playing ice hockey, playing James Bond video games, crossword puzzles and the game Scrabble.
He is survived by his wife, Lisa Guscott of Sandpoint; his son Jesse Guscott and his partner Lindsey Falciani of Sandpoint; a brother, Lindsay and wife Jeanne of Diamond Lake, Wash.; a sister, Bobbie, and husband Bill of Deer Park, Wash.; and many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
