OBITUARY

Thomas Charles Benzeleski

August 17, 1970January 27, 2021

Thomas Charles Benzeleski Jr.

Born in Scranton, PA on August 17, 1970 to Thomas (Tommy) Charles Benzeleski Sr. & Lorraine Regina (Lowry) Benzeleski who 18 short months later went “Pikes Peak or Bust” & and never looked back.

On January 27, 2021 God looked around heaven and said “I need a kind, compassionate and generous man. He must be strong, helpful, hardworking and a smile that will open the clouds on the worst of days and make the angels sing.” God lit up because he knew what he was going to do. He sent his heavenly angels down to bring back home into his arms Thomas Charles Benzeleski Jr.

Tommy was a very successful self-made businessman owning and operating together with his loving wife of 30 years Tamara, Triple C Complete Carpet Care and Restoration and Hurri-Dry Nationwide.

Tom enjoyed working on and racing anything that had an engine, especially his 1965 Mustang. He loved being on the water, boating and camping. Every year cutting down a Christmas tree with Tamara, Ashley, Dylan and friends had become a favorite family tradition.

Tom was very passionate about dogs. His three best friends were Boo Belle, Sullivan and Kevin. They made regular trips to the trails on Mt Herman followed by a Starbucks Pupacchino. He saw his grandpups Riley and Koba as much as possible.

Meeting up with Tom in heaven is his mother-in-law Joyce West, his father Tom Sr., his cousin Bobby Dudick, and his step father Emanuel DelMonte.

Tom is survived by his wife Tamara Benzeleski, his children Ashley Benzeleski and Dylan (Jessica) Benzeleski, his grandkids Luka and Xavier Benzeleski, his mother Lorraine DelMonte, his sisters Laurie (Sean) Prather, Lisa (Kirt) Tritz, Lynn Pickett, Judy (Larry) Namiotka, Bob (Kim) Wetzel, his step brother David (Debby) DelMonte, his step sister Julie DelMonte, his in-laws Jan Fisher Sr., Jan Jr. (Jennifer) Fisher and many nieces and nephews and friends.

In lieu of flowers send donations to National Dog Mill Rescue(https://nmdr.org/donate/) and a college fund for his grandchildren. (https://gofund.me/e7fd9fa4)

Some restoration guys/companies don’t play well in the sandbox with others, But as I came to build relationships with many restoration companies on the Front Range one name always came up as being known and respected, and that was you Tom!
May the peace and comfort of Christ be with your family in these days.

Tammy, Ashley & Dylan,

I wish I had the words to say to you, but I’m at a loss for them. But do want to say, I love you guys

Tom,
You will be forever missed my friend. Working for You and Tammy was a great experience for me and you guys were my family when I felt I didn’t have my own for a time. Tom gave me a chance to show him my skills in the very beginning although he was hesitant at first because it had been a while since i had done any carpet work. But I rode with him the entire day and it turned out to be a good day. We joked around and got along really well. We had a lot in common, towards the end of the day he was getting A lot of calls for jobs to be scheduled, he would leave the house to go out the the van to schedule the new jobs coming in. So I grabbed the wand and went to work. By the time he finished scheduling all the calls I was pulling the hose’s out of the house. He was like whoa, I still have to finish the last few rooms. I said, oh I already did them. I wasn’t going to stand around and not do anything while you were taking your calls. He had this smirk on his face as if to say, I wonder if he did it right? Like I would of. So he preceded to check my work and a couple mins later came out of the house and said, doesn’t look too bad, but he had this smile on his face when he said it. I didn’t know how to read it at the time, but it turned out that smile would forever be burned into my memory. On the way back to his house/shop, he said I was hired if I wanted the job. He was impressed with my carpet lines I left in the carpet and said with that same smile, don’t try to show me up again! I chuckled and was there very early the next morning. That was the beginning of a great job and a very awesome family I got to know and spend time with. He reminded me of joey on friends with his smile, and I’d say “how you doin?” And he would crack up and call me crazy. I will never forget you Tom!! Rest well my friend. 🤟❤️

There are so many many great things about you that i remember.. So many memories..there's no way to narrow my favorite thing about you down to just one. Even the very 1st time we met, you just had a way of making me feel ok.. Your easy, fun loving spirit, always seemed to make everyone feel like you'd loved them your whole life! Your genuine smile & shy laugh (you will forever be my "Joey") or maybe your absolute conviction for the things you believed in. Or no, your love for your family & fur family("your grandpups" lol only you!?!) or your unmatched work ethic & drive to succeed- doing so w/ integrity & passion that no one can ever deny, are just a few things about you. I will always treasure our friendship, your encouragement & gentle reassurance to do what i love, the way i believe it should be done & if i just treat people right, how the rest would be easy, helped me thru some of the most unsure times & knowing that you believed in me, gave me the courage to keep going. Thank you for that! There are so many beautiful things about who you are, so many qualities about You that no one will ever even come close to having. You will missed by so many..Bc there are many who are better, just bc they knew you. I don't think you even realized how many people's lives you touched, or how many looked up to you just bc you were YOU. So I just hope you somehow know now, just what an amazing man you were to so many of us. & I hope when you kick back on your boat in the sky & look down on all the people, you feel all the love you have & that maybe u are ok now too. That you finally have peace & that you are able to realize just how successful you really were. Not bc of what you thought you should be, not bc of the things you worked so hard for, but bc of who YOU were, when you didn't even try.. I will forever miss u Tom! I want u to know how proud & grateful I am to have had the privelegde of calling you my friend. But most of all, i hope u know that i love ya! ALWAYS!

I was deeply saddened and heartbroken to hear the news of Tom's passing. The loss of a man who was so accomplished, hard working, kind, helpful, and dedicated to his family and his business.
To Tammy, Ashley, and Dylan, I am truly sorry for your loss, and pray God's peace and comfort over each of you as you now enter this new chapter in your lives without your precious loved one. May your husband and father live on forever in your hearts.

The Benzeleski family lived on our street for a short time (we were sad to see them go) Good neighbors are hard to find!
I remember Tom's big red truck parked in his driveway. He was always working on it, cleaning it up and getting it ready for the next run to clean yet another carpet.

I will never forget the day when the Benzeleski's were planning to move. Tom had rented a big giant crane to remove Ashley's playhouse from their back yard. We watched as the long arm of that crane went up and over their house to pick up Ashley's big play house in one piece and carry it back over the top of their house to load onto a flatbed, and take with them to their new home.....Who does that??? Lol....Tom spared no expense to provide for his family and keep his children happy! =)
I had so much respect for Tom as it was so evident what an incredibly hard worker and provider he was! He was definitely no slacker!

The last time I saw Tom and family was 2015 during a small business expose at their Triple C business. Other small business owners were invited to set up share their products.
That was a really fun day!
Tom will be sorely missed! ='(

My sweet Barbie and Ken (this is what iv always called both of them because there so beautiful ☺️)
There are no words to describe the love I have for you both. Iv never met such loving caring people who inspired me beyond words.
Inspired me in business and to be a better person. Working with you changed my path in life and i know God placed you here in my life for a reason. There are many who have amazing memories of you tom. There are so many you impacted with your contagious smile. You never judged me for where i came from, you only told me how proud you were of me and of how far iv come. You both did !
You always told me don’t fall for these ****** guys 😂and to be cautious.
I will always keep you close to my heart and be grateful to have known you.
Tamera my sweet barbie I love you beyond words and i wish i could comfort you.
I know your heart hurts beyond comprehension. I love you and i am sincerely praying for you and the kids.

To my second family,

I’ve found myself at a loss of words for you guys. Tom was a brilliant and selfless man.
I am lucky enough to have had to privilege of being honored to have had the opportunity to refer to him as my “other dad” I love each of you. More than I can explain.
