THOMAS F. WALSH

September 9, 1938 November 10, 2021

Thomas F. Walsh, Tom to most, and Dad or Papa to some, was born September 9, 1938, and passed away on November 10, 2021.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Judy and children: Thomas, Jr., Daniel, MaryClaire, Anne (Tim Bragg) and Joseph (Jennifer) and grandchildren: Joseph Walsh, Jr., Vincent Bragg, Catherine Walsh, Julieanna Walsh, and Lillian Walsh. He is also survived by brothers Patrick Walsh and Michael (Rosalee) Walsh and many nieces and nephews.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents Pat and Emma Walsh, sister Mary Theresa Walsh, brother and sister-in-law Larry and Mary Walsh, and sister-in-law Paula Walsh.

Tom graduated from Garces Highschool in 1957 where he played varsity football all four years; he treasured the friends he made there. He loved going to family get-togethers where he would sit back, share stories, and watch his family. In his spare time, he enjoyed watching classic westerns.

Eternal rest grant unto him, oh Lord; and may perpetual light shine upon him.

A Rosary will be held at St. Francis Catholic Church at 10:00 a.m. with a Funeral Mass following at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

Judy, I just heard and am so sad for your and our loss too. I would have been at the services had I known. We will miss Tom greatly.

I often think about Tom, his brothers and sisters and mom and dad. In the 1940s and 50s Tom and his family would visit our house. He would see us at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Tom loved the outdoors. He took me and my brother Dick along with his brothers Larry and Michael on a hike to Devil's Punchbowl in the Oakland Hills--scary! Tom was an athlete, kicking off the football for Garces High and being the first downfield. Tom's mom, Emma, was my Godmother and my father, Harold's sister. Our families were close. To Judy and Tom's Family: We are so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry Anne. My prayers will be with you and your family. May God give you consolation through the love and well wishes of all who love you, like we do. I will pray for you and your family, and for your Father- that he resting in the arms of the Heavenly Host.

Mr. Walsh has been a great example and support for me since 1982! He was a man of true devotion to Our Blessed Mother to whom he consecrated himself as a slave of love! There were no limits to the love and generosity he had for Her! Now She, together with her Divine Son, will be his overwhelmingly great recompense forever! May he now intercede for all of us before Them! My most sincere condolence and prayers for Judy, Thomas, Daniel, Mary Claire, Anne and Joseph at this moment of grief despite our certainty that, by his prayers and intercession, we will all be together one day with him, at the feet of Our Blessed Mother and her Divine Son, for all Eternity! With all my devotion and esteem, in Jesus and Mary, Fr. Timothy
