Tom Mower Sr., the founder of network marketing companies Neways and Sisel International, passed away suddenly August 2, 2020.
Mower was born on July 15, 1942, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a master storyteller and inspired millions via TV, radio, the Internet and from stage in jam-packed arenas around the world. He was a consummate entrepreneur, building at one point the 5th-largest network marketing company in the world, employing over 1,200 people.
An expert sportsman, Mower was happiest spending time with family outdoors and at his cabin. He loved hunting and fishing with his kids, leading to a massive trophy room. He endeared himself to the sportsman community by donating well over $1 million dollars to help start the Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife. His generosity continued over the course of his lifetime and he gave away millions of dollars to various philanthropic organizations focusing on abandoned children, wildlife and environmental needs.
He was fond of telling his many friends, “We’re here to live life to the fullest.” He was a true patriot who loved his country and lived the American Dream as a hardworking, self-made man who not only created opportunities for his family but for myriad others. He loved people and nothing could tear him away from his passion and deep desire to help them. Through his many successful endeavors and extensive travels, he touched the lives of millions of people the world over, even holding council with the Dalai Lama.
