Thomas was born in Dumont, New Jersey on September 4, 1945; to father, Edward Andrew and mother ,Ruth Smith. He is the middle of three children. He graduated from the first graduating class of Morris Knolls High School in 1964.
Thomas was a man of many faces and was one of the hardest working men that God ever created. Thomas worked for Coca Cola Enterprises, Williams and Hibler Lumber Yard, and Grand Union sometimes working more than one job at a time. Thomas was an entrepreneur who owned a liquor store, vending business, and sign making business through the years. This is only half the work that he did as he took a thirteen hundred square foot, run down house from the 1840’s and built it into more than a four-thousand-square foot beautiful home. A home that he loved to entertain at and invite everyone he knew and loved to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and life in general. Thomas did all this while caring for his family and loved ones, traveling, and enjoying life. Helping family and friends with projects, additions, decks, and anything that anyone needed is what he did. Thomas spent his life working on making sure those that were around him were comfortable and happy. Thomas also taught his children and grand children so much through the years. Tom accomplished an incredible amount throughout his life and left a lasting impression on all that knew him. He will be in our hearts always, may he rest in peace.
