Thomas was born January 1, 1936, in Cleveland, Ohio. Growing up in the Westside of Cleveland he graduated from St. Benedictine High School in 1954 and has remained a resident of the South Euclid area since 1960. Strong in his faith, Tom was a member of St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church and Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish. There he served as an usher, Eucharistic Minster, and sat on the finance council. He devoted over 60 years as a traffic engineer for the City of Shaker Heights, the City of South Euclid, and Traffic Control Products. He was very active in the IMSA Organization, as well as the Knights of Columbus Post 15023 of South Euclid. Tom also enjoyed collecting coin operated machinery, especially his extensive collection of gumball machines. He was extremely generous and loved time spent with his family. His non-judgmental and humble demeanor allowed him the opportunity to meet many friends. On December 15, 2022, this dear man with a great sense of humor passed away peacefully with his family by his side.
