THOMAS ROSS TRAFTON Obituary
TRAFTON, Thomas Ross Born August 1, 1942, passed away on Thursday, May 12, 2016 after a long illness. He was the son of Edwin R. and Hilda Haskell Trafton, formerly of Norwell and Osterville, MA. He graduated from Tabor Academy, Marion, MA (class of '61) and Middlebury College (class of '65) and pursued an entrepreneurial career as a business man, owner and manager of several start-up companies. Tom enjoyed playing and teaching tennis and often competed in NELTA tournaments with his cousin, Peter. He was fond of sailing, traveling, and learning foreign languages. Because of his creative imagination and independent nature, Tom was once described by his friends as "living in a different time zone". He is survived by several cousins, and will be missed by friends and family. A private family memorial service is planned.
