Thom Michael Petty

Thom Michael Petty died of cancer in Chennai India on December 12, 2011. He was 50 years old. Thom came to Chennai in 1996 to start the ministry of Sparky’s American Restaurant which was a ministry under YWAM Chennai. Thom was a master Italian chef who previously owned several restaurants and cruise ships and gave his life to world missions. His gift of hospitality and food brought thousands of people into his restaurant in Chennai where he entertained people with food, laughter, friendship and pointed many towards the Kingdom of God. He is greatly missed.

YWAM MemorialsA digital place to honor, remember and give thanks to God for those who have died in the service of God through YWAM.

YWAM-Memorial.org has been a digital place to honor, remember and give thanks to God for those who have died in the service of God through YWAM. In the last month, in discussions with Donna Jordan Co-Founder YWAM Associates International and Patricia Talbott leader in YWAM Associates International, we sensed that it was right to blend these two websites together. For Peter Jordan, also Co-Founder of YWAM Associates is now with the cloud of witnesses, this was very much in his heart and so also in honor of Peter these two websites are now blended. Please visit this new Memorial site to see the current Memorials listed or to create a Memorial of a YWAM loved one.
