On Thursday, October 3, 2019, Thomas Misino, loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away at home surrounded by family at the age of 88.
Tom was born in Brooklyn, NY on December 7th, 1930, the oldest child of Vincent and Anna. He was and is still adored by his sisters Angela Fontana and Rita Marchiondo.
Tom joined the Army as a young man. He went on to work for the NYC Transit Authority, maintaining and repairing subway cars before retiring in 1986 and moving the family to Arizona.
Tom was known to build and fix pretty much anything from car engines, to appliances, to backyard sheds. You could always find him tinkering at his work bench surrounded by his vast collection of tools.
Perhaps the most important thing Tom built is his loving family. He was preceded in death by his wife Mattie, and is survived by his two children Matthew and Andrea, and his grandchildren Zach, Mackenzie, Annabelle, and Sophie. His love of fixing things was surpassed only by his ability to take care of those he loved. Tom was known for his quick temper, along with a creative use of questionable language, the ability to laugh and make others laugh, and his easy smile and effortless forgiveness.
He is dearly loved and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
