Pastor Emeritus

Pastor Tom Daly is a native Arizonan born in Tucson and raised in the West Valley.  His parents were both dance instructors with Arthur Murray, and his father was the owner of the dance studio here in Phoenix.


Pastor Daly, Sr. became a second career pastor, moving his family to Central Illinois.  Daly graduated from Pekin Community High School and Eureka College, both in Illinois.  Daly then attended seminary at Fort Wayne, Indiana, and received his first call to serve a congregation in Western New York, south of Buffalo in 1984.


He later served four different congregations in Central Illinois before accepting the call to Trinity Lutheran Church in Fountain Hills in 2005, where he served for fourteen years, before accepting the call to Fountain of Life.


Pastor Daly was installed at Fountain of Life Lutheran Church on September 22, 2019.
