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.
