In winter, they liked to travel to warmer destinations. Just prior to the onset of Tom's declining health, they had a wonderful vacation in Portugal which provided great memories during the difficult months to follow.
He is survived by his wife Lois McCormick, his son Sean Conlon and his wife Melanie Beasley, his daughter Kristyne Kordes and her husband Roger Kordes, his granddaughters Kiera Kordes and Kylie Kordes, and grandson Kaden Kordes, his sister Suzanne Conlon and brother Brian Conlon.
