Thomas Patrick Cusick, 94, of Keansburg passed away peacefully at home on February 23, 2017. Thomas was born to Irish-immigrant parents, Patrick and Delia (Kelly) Cusick on May 30, 1922 in Jersey City where he lived before making his home in Keansburg in 1956. Tom worked for Colgate-Palmolive Company for 42 years, retiring in 1983.

Thomas proudly served in the U.S. Army as a Sergeant during World War II deployed in the European theatre. After his service, Thomas married his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth "Betty" Barry on August 22, 1946. Together they raised six children and were blessed to see nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Tom was known for his love of sports, the newspapers and his classic sense of humor. He enjoyed being with his Wife and family, doting on his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Thomas was a Communicant of St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church, a member of the Goodfellows, and a life member of both the American Legion Post 273 and the former VFW Post 1953.

Our family gives its thanks to Tom's caregivers over the past several years (Sharon, Lisa, Fran, Maureen, Cookie and Danielle) as well as our many friends who always sent their well- wishes to Dad.
