Obituary of Thomas John Tirone
It is with great sadness and loving memories that the family of Thomas Tirone announces his passing on December 5, 2022, at the age of 61, after a short but hard fought battle against cancer. He will forever be remembered by his wife, of 36 years, Catherine, daughter Laura (Ryan) and their children Charlotte and Leah, his sons Jim (Brianne) and Joe (Kayla), his sisters Linda (the late Al), Marie (Mark), Susan and Laura and many extended family members, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Stephen and Leah, and sister, Diane.
Tom will be remembered for his unwavering strength, determination, deep love and commitment to his family. He had an incredible work ethic with a tremendous sense of loyalty, responsibility and drive. Tom was always teaching new things and solving problems during his 36 year career in the corn wet-milling industry. In his spare time, he enjoyed working on his classic cars, especially with his sons, tending to his vegetable garden, spending time at his parent's cottage, fishing, waterskiing, listening to classic rock, making homemade pizza playing, coaching and watching soccer.
The family would like to thank the incredible people at Niagara Health who provided Tom with exceptional care and compassion. In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of his life will take place at St. Mary Parish, 90 Griffith St., Welland. Mass will take place on Tuesday, December 13 at 10:30 am followed by an Inurnment at Holy Cross Cemetery, 50 Woodlawn Rd. Welland.
