Thomas Irving Sekator, 66, of Narragansett, passed away peacefully at home. He was the loving son of the late Benjamin Alfred Sekator and the late Elizabeth Jane Sekator.
Tom really enjoyed his Native American heritage and was extremely proud of being a Narragansett Indian. The friendships he made with tribal members meant the world to him. Though the Navy made Tommy a world traveler, his true home was always Narragansett, Rhode Island. He loved to travel to many places including California, Australia, and The Philippines. Tom attended the University of Rhode Island, was an avid Cleveland Browns football fan, and loved any body of water and enjoyed a good fishing day. He retired as a Navy veteran who was honorably discharged after serving 20 years.
He is survived by his daughter Mekea Whitmore; his siblings Benjamin "Ricky" Sekator, Joanne Carosella, Cindy Mosby, Robert 'Bobby" Sekator; and his grandson and Zeth Manski.
A funeral service will be held in Avery-Storti Funeral Home, 88 Columbia Street, Wakefield, on August 22 at 2 p.m. Visiting hours will be held on August 22 from 1-2 p.m.
