On Wednesday, April 29, 2020, Thomas Louis Nasky, Jr., loving husband, father of two and grandfather of four, passed away at age 81. Tom was born on March 1, 1939 in Cleveland, OH, to Tom and Laura (Rzonca) Nasky. Tom attended the Cleveland Institute of Music and served in the U.S. Army. On October 28, 1961, he married Georgean Bitterman. They raised two sons, Tom and Mark, in Rocky River, OH, his and Georgean's hometown. From early childhood Tom developed a passion for music and art. Tom was an accomplished clarinetist and jazz saxophonist. Tom's passion for painting also blossomed during his youth. His musical and artistical pursuits took a back seat while raising his family and pursuing varied business interests. Tom retired in January 2006. In September 2010, Tom and Georgean moved to Colorado to be close to their sons and grandchildren. In addition to an increase in much cherished family time over the last 10 years, Tom and Georgean have established many new close friendships in their adopted home state. During retirement, Tom rekindled his love for painting and remained active in that pursuit until his death, his works displayed in several local shows and galleries. Tom was also an active member of his church choir at St. John's Episcopal Church in Boulder, continuing to foster his love for music. Tom will be remembered for his generous personality, infectious laugh and his enormous love for family and friends. Tom was preceded in death by his father, Tom, and his mother, Laura. He is survived by his wife Georgean, his two sons, Tom (Molly) and Mark (Cindy), his four grandchildren, Nick, Laura, Drew and Jack, as well as numerous cousins and nephews.
