Tom passed away at home with his family by his side after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife, Connie "Peanut" Gozzano, of 39 years, devoted daughters Kelly Marshall and Colleen Bradeson, and son-in-law Rick Bradeson. Tom was affectionately referred to as "Faf" by his grandchildren Kyle & Kayla Marshall, and Logan & Houston Bradeson. Tom is preceded in death by his parents Louis & Clara Gozzano, and is also survived by his brother Jim Gozzano, sister-in-law Teresa, and nephews Chris and Tim.
Tom spent his entire life in Pinole, CA, where he was born, raised, and an active business owner for 36 years. He graduated from Richmond High School and St. Mary's College. After college, Tom entered the Army where he actively served in Vietnam. As a teenager, Tom worked for the Pinole Food Center until he began a career in Real Estate in 1973. He and his wife opened Old Time Realtors in 1978 and later Venice Mortgage Company. Tom was a community leader serving throughout his life: City Councilman & Mayor of Pinole, and most recently as a Pinole Youth Council member, and Board President of the Pinole Area Senior Foundation.
Tom's life passion was to help others, touching many lives through his generosity. He loved to conduct business, hunt with his buddies, and entertain everyone with jokes and stories. Making us laugh 'till the very end, he will be forever loved and missed by his family and multitude of friends.
A memorial celebration in Tom's honor will be held on Friday, August 1, 2014, @ 2pm, St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Pinole, CA.
