Thomas M. Flaherty

AGE: 88 • Spring Lake Heights

Mr. Thomas Michael Flaherty, 88, of Spring Lake Heights, formerly of Avon and Jersey City, passed away on October 25, surrounded by his loving family at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune. Tom retired after working in the insurance business for over 40 years. He began his career in Jersey City at Flaherty, Sheedy and Ryan and later he was employed by Conover, Beyer and Associates in Manasquan. Tom was a long time parishioner of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary RC Church in Avon. He was a graduate of Saint Peter's Prep and Saint Peter's College in Jersey City. He was an active member of the Saint Peter's Prep Alumni Association, and served for many years as a member of "The" Prep's Board of Trustees. He was also an active member and volunteer of ARC. He was US Army Veteran who proudly served in occupied Japan shortly after WWII.

Tom loved spending time with his family and in the company of his many good friends, and would often say, "Nothing else matters as long as we are all together." Proudly Jesuit educated, he was a devout Catholic, husband and father. He was an avid golfer and a member of the Spring Lake Golf Club. He will live forever in the hearts and memories of many.

Tom was predeceased by his wife, Rosemary (McCarthy); his son, Thomas Flaherty, and his daughter, Regina Flaherty. He is survived by his children and their spouses, Ellen and Darrel Geraghty of Bogota, Beth and Tom Dunn of Westfield, Mary and Tom Egan of Manasquan, Bill Flaherty and Debbie Hasuga of Belmar, Charles "C.J."
