The National Greenhouse Manufacturers Association (NGMA) recently shared the sad news that long-time member Thomas L. Conley, President of Conley’s Manufacturing & Sales, passed away on Tuesday, July 26, at the age of 73.
The following comes directly from NGMA:
“Tom played a significant role in the greenhouse manufacturing business that his father founded in 1946. Tom’s passionate and progressive nature of greenhouse designs brought many innovations and successes to the forefront of the business, and he was a well-known and highly respected figure in the agriculture industry. If he wasn’t busy designing, selling, or building greenhouses, you would most certainly find him in his beloved hotrod shop, fulfilling his life-long hobby of building classic cars. He was a highly skilled builder and won several awards for many of his cars over the years.
“Tom was a generous person and dearly touched so many lives in his 73 years, especially with his laughter and his ability to make others laugh. Tom is survived by his fiancé Donna, brother David, daughter Ardus, sons Dan and Josh, and nine grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted in Tom’s honor to The Let It Be Foundation:
