Tom Greico Memorial Scholarship

 

Surrounded by his family and loved ones, Thomas Joseph Greico passed away on Saturday, January 12th, 2019. A designer/builder extraordinaire, observer of architecture, student of construction, master of good taste and a damn nice guy, Tom was one of Dallas' leading architects and builders, designing and building scores of homes. Born in Columbus, Ohio, on March 19th, 1958, he moved to Dallas at a young age, attending St. Rita's Catholic School and W.T. White High School. After graduating from the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) in 1983, Tom opened his own homebuilding business.

Tom helped pioneer modern homebuilding in North Texas, becoming one of the first in Dallas to design and build customized modern homes. Tom's vision inspired many other builders and architects to follow suit, and he leaves behind an impressive legacy. Since founding Greico Modern Homes in the late 2000s, he has built in excess of 40 homes. His signature design evokes the essence of mid-century modern homes built in the late 1950s and 1960s, featuring buttresses and cantilevered roof lines as well as minimalist form and function. His homes have a unique architectural style in and of themselves as an expression of Tom's vision. His homes were often showcased in both the Parade of Homes and the White Rock Tour of Homes.

 

Tom's legacy is felt not only in the aesthetics of many Dallas homes, but on the campus of his alma mater. To honor that legacy, friends and family have started the Tom Greico Memorial Scholarship. Gifts to this scholarship will help aspiring architects in UTA's College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs pursue the dream of a college degree and hope to accomplish as much as Tom did during his career.

 

If you would like to make a pledge to the scholarship in Tom's memory or if you have questions about how to best establish his legacy at UTA, please contact Brady Minor, associate director of development for university initiatives, at brady.minor@uta.edu or 817.272.9375.
