June 10, 1923 - February 26, 2014 Tom was born in Newport News, Virginia to William and Sadie Antinori. He joined the Navy after graduating high school and was proud to be a WWII submarine veteran, serving in the Pacific aboard the USS Guardfish. While stationed in Washington, he met Marian Fields. They married in October, 1946 and spent the next 68 years together. They had two daughters, Janet and Joyce and made Kirkland, Washington their home. After the Navy, Tom dedicated his life to providing for his family, finally retiring after 20 years with General Electric. Tom enjoyed the outdoors, particularly working in his yard, fishing, hiking and camping. On February 26, 2014, at the age of 90, Tom passed away. His beloved wife, Marian; his daughters, Joyce and Janet along with her husband, Roger; his granddaughter, Jessica, grandson, Justin and his wife, Sabrina; and great-granddaughter Avah, all greatly miss this precious man. At Tom's request, there will be no memorial service. He wished only to be remembered in the hearts of those he held dear as the loving and talented gentleman we were blessed to have in our lives.
