Thomas M. O'Grady Obituary
Thomas M. O'Grady

AGE: 67 • Middletown

Thomas Michael O'Grady, 67, of Middletown, DE passed away peacefully on Monday, August 24, 2015 at Christiana Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

The son of Edith and Thomas O'Grady, Tom was one of five children raised in Jersey City, New Jersey. After attending Dickinson High School, he joined the U.S. Navy and served during the Vietnam War. He was extremely proud of his service on the USS Wasp.

A devoted husband and father, Tom moved his family to Delaware in 1974, where he raised two children with his wife Kathy. He was employed by Public Service & Gas Company for 30 years and retired as an Operations Supervisor in 2003. For many years, Tom enjoyed spending time at his beach house in Ocean City, Maryland and sitting on the beach at Assateague Island. He will be remembered for his patriotic spirit and love of the Navy, both evident in his t-shirt and baseball hat collection. He loved being Pop Pop to his grandson Thomas and thoroughly enjoyed spoiling him and spending time with him in his oversized pool.

Tom is predeceased by his wife Kathleen O'Grady and his three brothers.

Tom, better known as Pop, will be dearly missed by his family. He is survived by his son Thomas Robert and wife Beth of Middletown and son Robert Corby and his wife Kristin of Newark. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Matthew and Thomas, and his sister Joan Garrison.
