THOMAS INTRATOR Feb. 5, 1952–June 3, 2014

Thomas Intrator of Los Alamos died at home on June 3, 2014. He will be sorely missed as a wonderful friend, mentor, father and husband.

He was born on February 5, 1952 in New York City to Joan and Charles Intrator. Thomas moved to Los Alamos with his family in 1999 to begin plasma physics research in P-24 at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Previously he had been at the Nuclear Engineering research faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Tom’s lifelong guiding principle was to make the earth a better place than he found it. Survivors include his wife Lysa, daughter Miranda, sons Gabriel and Isaac (Malika), all of Los Alamos, brother Fred (Sandra), nephew Morgan, niece Caitlin, and mother Joan, as well as many far flung relatives. Tom is also survived by his first wife, Lora Hammers Woods.

Burial services will be at Guaje Cemetery Friday, June 6 at 2 p.m. If you wish to pay your respects to Tom, please feel free to attend — his family welcomes your presence.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions in Tom’s name to either The Southern Poverty Law Center or Doctors without Borders, two of his favorite charities.
