Thomas  Ryan
Died: Mar 22, 2019
Thomas Ryan of Allamuchy, beloved son, father and brother passed away unexpectedly on March 20, 2019.  He was 54 years old.

Thomas was a computer database administrator by trade, however music was his passion.  A gifted musician Tom was happiest behind the microphone or holding a guitar, even more so when ‘jamming’ with his sons, Billy, Glenn and Frank.  Tom could pick up and play just about any instrument and used those abilities to play with multiple recording artists and bands throughout his life.

When not playing out he loved watching football (mostly the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins, the two favorite places he lived), playing fantasy football with his dad, playing piano with his mother and continually finding new ways to tease his sister.  A loving uncle he supported his nephew’s and niece’s interests in music and coin collecting.  Most of all he loved spending time with his kids, going to concerts, deep sea fishing, playing video games and just hanging out.

Thomas is survived by his father and mother, Thomas and Catherine, and his sons, William, Glenn and Frank. He is also survived by his sister Cathy “Cassie” Keenan her husband Chris, nephew Chris and niece/goddaughter Kelcie as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins, all who will miss him dearly.

Viewing will be held for family and friends on Sunday March 24th at Cochran Funeral Home, 905 High Street, Hackettstown, NJ 07840 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. 

A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Monday, March 25, 2019 at 11:30 am at Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Mary, Hackettstown, NJ.

I immediately missed you on Friday night at Bea McNally's, I was thinking where could he be? I miss him every week he is not there. Then I received this from one of your old school friends yesterday. I will miss your singing, your harmonica playing, and your infectious smile. It will not be the same hosting karaoke without you there. You made it so much fun, and I truly will miss you. Go entertain the angels my friend. To Tommy's family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss, if its hurting me this much I can only imagine how much you all are hurting. I will be keeping you all in my prayers. God's blessings to you all.
