Andrus, Thomas  
Thomas M. Andrus 1959 - 2015 NEW MARLBOROUGH - Thomas Michael Andrus, 56, of Hayes Hill Road passed away on Thursday, July 2, 2015 at his home in Mill River. Born April 24, 1959 in Great Barrington, he was the son of Thomas E. and Patricia Andrus. After graduating High School in 1977, he traveled across the country on his motorcycle. Once back in his home town of Monterey, his passion for automobiles fueled him to buy and establish Precision Autocraft in 1979. The business expanded over the next 10 years, and in the mid 90's relocated to Rt. 7 in Sheffield to accommodate its growth. The integrity he brought to his life and to his business was the backbone of his success. Tom was thoughtful, compassionate, and kind, in personal and business endeavors, which was a gift to everyone he came into contact with. He had a witty sense of humor that kept his family and his countless friends close, grinning, and delighted to be in his presence always. At times, he was an avid reader, and thoroughly enjoyed the education he gained, spiritually, and otherwise from his books. Taking long drives in and around the Berkshires to his favorite landmarks and restaurants with his wife, Kathy, was an activity that brought them both great pleasure and joy. Mostly, Tom felt incredibly blessed, for his family, his friends, and his time with them. As well as being a beloved husband to Kathy Marchione Carson Andrus, Tom was the greatest Dad to his stepdaughter, Melissa Carson Andrus, his son, Max T. Andrus and daughter-in-law, Jennifer Alfonso. One of his greatest joys was his grandson, Jackson T. Morse, Melissa's son. He also leaves his sister, Susan Andrus Lucas, and three brothers, Daniel, Richard, and Jon Andrus, and their families. REMEMBRANCE: All are welcome to stop in as we celebrate his life between the hours of 1 to 5 pm, Thursday, July 9, 2015 at Crissey Farm 426 Stockbridge Road in Great Barrington. FINNERTY & STEVENS FUNERAL HOME in Great Barrington is caring for the arrangements. To sign the guestbook or send remembrances to his family please visit : www.finnertyandstevens.com
