Sugar Bowl In Memoriam

Judge Tom Wicker, a member of the Sugar Bowl Committee since 1973 and the organization’s president in 1986-87, peacefully passed away on February 24, 2021, at the age of 97. A 1944 graduate of Tulane University, Wicker served in the Pacific Theatre for the United States Navy during the final years of World War II. He would earn his law degree from Tulane and become very successful in public and private practice. In 1972, he was elected as a district judge for 13 years. He would successfully run for promotion to the Louisiana Court of Appeal, a position he would hold until retirement in 1998. He was a diehard supporter of sports, especially Tulane and the New Orleans Saints for his full life. Tom is survived by two daughters and two sons, including Sugar Bowl Committee member Thomas Carey Wicker; nine grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
