AGE: 53 • Beach Haven Terrace

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a kind, gentle soul, Thomas Rodman, 53, on November 15, 2016. Tom grew up in Beach Haven, and most recently resided in Beach Haven Terrace, and was a lifelong resident of Long Beach Island, NJ. He attended Beach Haven Elementary School, and Southern Regional High School, and studied Physics at Virginia Tech. He worked for the Beach Haven Water Department as a plumber and water treatment technician for many years, a job he loved for both the work and the people. Tom also worked at Hands Department store for many years, and became a licensed locksmith. Tom was owner and operator of TR Custom Services, LLC, and was a go-to person for year-round residents, realtors and summer visitors for their maintenance, plumbing and lock change needs. If you needed something fixed, Tom could do it. He was an athlete at Southern Regional High School, breaking his brother's high jump record his senior year. He was an avid photographer, an electronics buff, and a lover of all kinds of music. Tom was loved by all who knew him, and is known for being the kind of guy who would help you at a moment's notice, but ask for nothing in return.

Tom was survived by his mother, Eleanor Rodman, his brothers Dan and Mike Rodman, and his sister Patricia (Peaches) Towson. He also had 3 nieces and nephews, Robert Thomas Towson (his namesake), Jenna Towson and Jason Rodman, He was predeceased by his father, Daniel F Rodman. Tom was also cherished by many local friends and extended family in the Beach Haven and LBI community.
