Age 51 Passed away peacefully surrounded by family on April 15, 2017. Tom was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, nephew and friend. He is survived by his life partner Christine Hurley and their children Josalyn (10) and Hunter (6). He is also survived by his mother Shirley, brother Ralph (Kari), sisters Janelle Gawarecki (Chad) and Kathy Slaviero (Rick), and lots of cherished nieces, nephews, other family and friends that were so important to him and whom he loved very much.
Tom was a collector who believed that just about everything had a use and his genius was gathering the eclectic knowledge to discover those uses. He was a creator and tinkerer that could make or fix just about anything. He loved music and guitars and strove to make it as big a part in his children's lives as his own. He was a great friend and his generosity knew no bounds. He will be missed.
