Thomas Ferrairo Sr. Obituary

Thomas D Ferrairo Sr., belovedly known as Tom to many, born August 1, 1944, passed away peacefully at home on March 9, 2024 surrounded by his family. Tom was a man of boundless generosity, resilience, and devotion to his family and large circle of friends.

He is survived by his loving children, Thomas Ferrairo Jr., Christine Ferrairo, Michelle Dion, and Nicole Ferrairo. Tom wore the badge of Grampy, and was “The Best” Grampy to Stephen Prizio, Michael Carifio, Lauren Carifio, Tori Lucifora and Danielle Dion. He leaves behind his dear brother, Joseph Ferrairo, and his wife Bernadette. He also leaves behind a very special angel, his “favorite” cousin Ann Marinelli, with whom he resided during his final time with us. Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred and Margaret Ferrairo, and his siblings Ann Lupo, Al Ferrairo Jr., Diana Borgosano, and David Ferrairo.

Tom was the esteemed proprietor of TDF Metal Finishing Co., a testament to his unwavering dedication and entrepreneurial spirit. His business was not merely a livelihood, it was a manifestation of his lifelong passion. Despite the demands of his profession, Tom always prioritized his family and friends, showering them with affection and care. Known for his infectious zest for life and unique sense of humor, Tom's presence illuminated the lives of those around him. Tom worked hard, played harder, and was near perfect at everything, with one exception…it was a well-known fact that he "could not catch a fish to save his life."

While Tom may no longer be with us physically, his spirit will forever reside in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him. If you knew him, you loved him, and he will be deeply missed by so many. We invite friends and loved ones to share their cherished memories and photographs on his memorial page as we honor and celebrate the remarkable life of Thomas D Ferrairo Sr.
