Thomas L. Dyal, Jr.

Eagle Bay - Thomas L. Dyal, Jr., age 62, of Eagle Bay, NY formerly of LaGrangeville, NY, passed on December 21, 2017 at the Westchester Medical Center, after a prolonged illness.

He was born October 26, 1955 in Camp LeJeune, North Carolina to Thomas L. and Jane (Nebergall) Dyal, Sr., also of LaGrangeville.

A 1973 graduate of Arlington High School, he married his high school sweetheart Deborah Smith on August 9, 1975.

Tom started his 47 year long career in the industrial gas and welding industry at age 15 working for his father's company Cryo Dyne Corp in Poughkeepsie. In 1993 Tom and Debbie began Cryo Weld Corp with an old pick up and few cylinders, and grew it into two locations with a fleet of trucks serving the Hudson Valley Region. A true family business, Tom eventually turned Cryo Weld over to his children.

Tom's lifelong passion for machinery and the outdoors led him and his family to the Old Forge area of the Adirondacks where they spent their time snowmobiling and boating. He recently retired and became a full time resident of Eagle Bay, NY.

Tom was predeceased by is only son Thomas L. Dyal, III on December 13, 2013. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children Rebecca (Nicholas) Centorani of Wappingers Falls and Michelle Dyal of Hyde Park, along with his three granddaughters Bailey, Julia, and Hannah Centorani of Wappingers Falls. In addition to his parents, he is also survived by his siblings Lisa (Richard) Farmer of Troutville, VA, Gary (Ann) Dyal of Rhinebeck, Sandra O'Connor of Westfield, MA, Catherine Oswald of Hyde Park, Christopher Dyal of Albany, David (Cynthia) Dyal of Red Hook, Andrew (Melissa) Dyal of LaGrangeville. He also leaves many well-loved nieces and nephews.

Tom also leaves behind his lifelong neighborhood friends "The Barmore Rd Brawling Bastards" with whom he enjoyed decades of Turkey Bowl, Tug of War, and Wiffle Ball, as well as his amigo and right hand man, Sergio Lavariega.

Tom's tremendous passion for making life fun will be missed by his family, friends, and colleagues. Not bad for an enigma.

The family is extremely grateful to the Westchester Medical Center MICU for their compassionate and loving care of Tom these few weeks, especially the nursing staff.

A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at 1 p.m. at St. Joseph-Immaculate Conception Church, 15 North Avenue in Millbrook.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in Tom's memory to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, www.stjude.org.

Dear Debbie & Michelle,
I am deeply saddened to learn today that my friend passed away back in December. Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss.
Tom was a close friend of mine and will be missed. He was as close as a brother without being related to me. I hope that you are both doing well and want you to know I will be happy to help you if needed.

Tommy was more than a friend to me. He was my best friend and really more like a brother (the kind you admire and love, not the pesty, pesky kind). So my heart is, like yours, inconsolable. The only thing that helps me is reminding myself how blessed I was to have known and had Tommy in my life and shared the memories we did. That's so much more than I ever deserved. So Tom, Jane, Deb, Gary, Lisa, Sandy, Andrew, Michelle, Rebecca and all the rest of you, thanks for sharing him with me. May we all be reunited in Heaven with him and with T-Bone is my fervent prayer.

The world lost a truley great man. Tom will be missed by many, as he was one of a kind. His laugh, deminear and knowledge is what I will remember the most. His family business in albany I ran for a number of years and he was a pleasure to work for. With that I have a very heavy heart for Debbie and Michelle, as they were his rock, and he was for them. They have been through some really tough times, no family should have to endure. Rest in peace Tom. You will be sorely missed by hundreds of people that got the pleasure to know you.

Dearest Tall Family,

Ken and I are so sorry for your loss. We are wishing you all strength and resilience during this difficult time. We can only think of Toms smiling face and jovial nature. With Tom, it was always clear that family comes first. He was always interested in sharing the love and laughter with those around him. We feel fortunate to have spent many years enjoying his smile, laughs, and warm embraces.

Love,
Ken and Camille Johnson

Debbie and the whole Dyal Clan...it's so sad when we lose one of the old Barmore Rd clan. Tommy certainly lived life to the fullest and has left a great legacy. He certainly will be missed dearly. Whenever I picture him in my mind, I just see that big smile on his face. The best comfort right now is knowing how much he is probably enjoying being back with T-bone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all right now. Mark and Louise
