Thomas E. Waring Obituary
SARATOGA SPRINGS - Thomas E. Waring of Spa Drive died Saturday, June 1, 2013, quietly at home after a long series of illnesses.
He was born Aug. 16, 1936, to William H. and Kathryn I. Waring (Riordan). Tom graduated from Saratoga High School, Class of '54. He earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Siena College in 1958. In 1968, he received a Master of Public Administration degree from the Graduate School of Public Affairs at the State University of New York at Albany.
Tom's entire career was spent working for the state of New York. He was the director of fiscal research and special projects for the comptroller's office when he retired in 1991.
In addition to his parents, Tom was predeceased by a brother, William J. Waring (Joan); a sister, Barbara A. Waring; and an infant niece, Elaine Mary Waring.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Claire Stanford Waring; a son, Thomas E. Waring Jr. of Ballston Spa (Marylee Fitzgerald); a daughter, Suzanne Waring Daly (Peter) of Marlborough, Mass.; a brother, Samuel K. Waring of Pittsfield, Mass.; a cousin, John (Jackie) Riordan of Greenfield; six grandchildren, Christopher, Patrick and Elizabeth Daly of Marlborough, Mass., and Michelle, Thomas III and Madeleine Waring of Ballston Spa; the mother of the Waring grandchildren, Kerri Weiskotten (Kurt); and two nieces and a nephew, Maureen Gizzi, Paulette Spina and Christopher Waring.
In accordance with his wishes, Tom will be cremated with no visitation or services.
Those wishing to do so can contribute in his memory to either the E.O.C. Soup Kitchen, Presbyterian-New England Congregational Church, 23 Circular St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866; or to Saratoga County Animal Shelter, 6010 County Farm Road, Ballston Spa, NY 12020.
Claire will be in seclusion for a period of time and hopes that relatives and friends will understand her need for complete solitude during this painful time.
