Thomas Barnaby, 66, of Hobe Sound, Florida passed away on May 2, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Yonkers, New York, Thomas had previously lived in Carmel, NY before moving to the Hobe Sound, FL area over 20 years ago.

He was a boat craftsman for Rybovich in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. He loved boats, the ocean, his job, and always took great pride in his work. Thomas was a sports enthusiast and remained a loyal Yankees, Giants, Seminoles and USF Bulls fan. His other interests included classic cars and antique furniture refinishing.

Thomas was a member of St. Christopher Catholic Church in Hobe Sound, FL.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Rita Barnaby of Hobe Sound, FL; his daughters, Kate Barnaby of Miami, FL; Taylor Barnaby of Chicago, IL; sister Barbara McKeever of Peekskill, NY; sister-in-law Rose Cipillone of Peekskill, NY; brother Michael Barnaby of North Fort Myers, FL; brother John Barnaby of Rome, NY; sister-in-law Diane Ridley of Jupiter, FL; brother-in-law Matthew Ridley of Jupiter, FL; brother-in-law Ed Sangalli of Phoenix, AZ; sister-in-law Margaret Sangalli of Phoenix, AZ.

Thomas was a gift beyond compare to family and friends, whose presence will be sorely missed. He was a devoted husband and father, who although unseen, will still walk lovingly beside his wife and daughters every day of their lives.

I've known Duke for 42 years...I was lovingly accepted by such a wonderful, fun loving, crazy group of friends. I will always think of all the great times we have had over so many years. From my teens, through raising children...and oh so many parties.....Boy we laughed so hard......I hope Rita Kate and Taylor find peace knowing how much their guy was loved and will be truly missed.
