Thomas M. Giardini Obituary

Thomas Marshall Giardini, 68, passed away on Thursday, September 3, 2015, at Saint Francis Hospital in Hartford. Born in Hartford, CT, to Angelo and Mary Giardini, Tom was raised in West Hartford with his three sisters Andrea, Marianne and Barbara. He eventually came to reside in Wethersfield and later Farmington. Graduating from Northwest Catholic High School in 1965, Tom recently attended his 50th high school reunion. Following his graduation, he completed a post-graduate year at The Winchendon School and continued on to receive his undergraduate degree while simultaneously enlisting in the 405th Army Reserve in West Hartford. Throughout his high school and college years, Tom worked for The Associated Construction Company, which his father established in 1942.Tom had a love for family, travel, boating, food and wine, but one of his foremost passions was his company. Working alongside his father for 35 years, Tom was an incredibly dedicated employee of Associated for nearly 50 years. He served as president of the firm for over 30 years. His unabashed love of people and enthusiasm for construction led to a fulfilling career. He was also active in local and national contractor's organizations, serving as CT chapter president of The Associated General Contractors of America, Connecticut Building Congress and Wethersfield Historical Society. He was slated to serve as Chair of the Associated Builders and Contractors of CT for 2016. Throughout his time in Hartford, Tom made it a priority to give back to the community. He was a large supporter of education and the arts as well as other personal interests based in the Metro Hartford area. Tom's humor, boundless enthusiasm, drive, and passion for life and family will never be forgotten. He is survived by Bonnie, his wife of 25 years, their two children Sarah and Thomas, his three sisters, Marianne, Andrea, and Barbara, his brother-in-law, Barry, and numerous nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
