Tom Cary of Victor, longtime administrator at HWS, died Monday, Sept. 19, after a brief illness.
Initially an auditor for the Colleges, he was hired to shepherd the conversion of the punch-card data processing system to an online system which was the precursor of the one now in place.
In his 22 years with HWS, he held several other positions but spent the majority of his tenure supporting the financial records and the human resources systems.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara, three children and seven grandchildren.
Calling hours will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Keenan Funeral Home's Egypt location, 7501 Pittsford-Palmyra Road, Fairport. A memorial service will begin at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23 at the funeral home.
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society of the Oncology Department at Strong Memorial Hospital.
