O’Neil, Thomas- Age 65, of Sandwich, formerly of Scituate, passed away peacefully at his home on January 22, 2020. He was the loving husband of 41 years to Mary O’Neil. Beloved father to Colleen Hughes, her husband Sean of Weymouth, MA, Erin O’Neil of Dorchester, MA and Meghan O’Neil of Dorchester, MA. Cherished grandfather of Emily, Patrick, and Timothy Hughes. He is survived by his sister Kathy Tolland, her husband Mark and his brother Danny O’Neil, his wife Marge. He is survived by many nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents Daniel and Rita O’Neil. Tom was born and raised in Hyde Park and worked at New England Telephone and State Street Bank for many years. He was an active member in the Scituate community as a Scituate youth rec coach as well as being an usher at St. Mary’s church for 17 years.

Tom was always the biggest cheerleader for his three daughter’s music and sports events, often driving far and wide to be there for their concerts/games. He was an active member of the Scituate Knights of Columbus even after his move to Sandwich and running the annual Tootsie Roll drive for the K of C at the Scituate Marketplace location each October, as well as working at the annual Scituate carnival working on the pan game.

Tom fought a hard fight battling Pheochromocytoma, a rare cancer, for 12 years with the greatest of ease. Always doing what he could to fight. One of his favorite doctors at MGH, Dr Elaine YU, said he fought a very difficult diagnosis with Bravery, Humility and Humor

He was the greatest husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend we could have ever asked for and he has left a hole that will never be filled.

A visitation will be held on Monday January 27, 2020 from 4-8pm at Richardson-Gaffey Funeral Home, 382 First Parish Road, Scituate. A mass of Christian burial will take place on Tuesday January 28, 2020 at 10am from St. Mary of the Nativity Church, 1 Kent St, Scituate. Donations in remembrance of Tom may be made to Caring for a Cure at caringforacure.org to help those in the Mass General cancer center.

I wish to sent my prayers and condolences to Mary, Colleen, Erin, Megham. I knew Tom for only a brief time when he lived in Scituate. I also work with Tom at State Street in Qunicy we sometimes shared a ride into work always stopping for coffee along the way. I always saw Tom at the Scituate Carnival when he was working one of the stands. I could always shared conversation with Tom and Mary whenever I met them on the street. We will missed him. Again my Condolences and pryers are with you Mary and your family.

I’ll always remember when I went to visit Tom at Brigham and Women’s after his first surgery I think? And the hospital priest came in. We all stood and held hands in a circle while the priest led us in a prayer. Your Dad farted during the prayer and of course as the kind, considerate man he was. said “Excuse me father, continue please.” I love you all

Thank you Mr O’Neil for being another dad to me for so many of my childhood years. You always treated me like family, for better or for worse :). You will be missed and you will remain loved.
