Tom Deardorff, II married his high school sweetheart, Suzanne. They have three children: Jack, William and Kate, (7, 5, and 2 respectively). They enjoy family time and sports – baseball and skiing – and just being together. The Deardorffs love and respect where they live and appreciate every day in the beautiful Oxnard area.
“My dad encouraged all of us to pursue outside experiences. His theory was if his kids wanted to come back, they should bring something unique and new to the company.”
Tom received his law degree and practiced law for a few years before returning to the family business. Does he miss law? “I miss the analytical side of things, but I don’t miss billing hours and I am certainly glad for the strong business foundation my law experience has provided me.”
