OBITUARY

Thomas Pasco Roman

January 21, 1949January 15, 2020

Thomas (Tom) P. Roman, Age 70, passed away on January 15, 2020 after a courageous battle with Parkinson’s and Lewy Body Dementia. Tom will be deeply missed by his wife Susan, son Christopher, twin grandchildren, and his very dear niece Adrienne.

Tom was born in Danbury, CT on 1/21/1949 to Pasco and Wanda Stankiewicz Roman. Tom was predeceased by his parents and his sister Donna O’Brien. Tom cared for his parents and sister until their passing. Tom served in the Army during the Vietnam War in the artillery unit, fourth infantry. His love for his country never waivered and he was honorably discharged in 1971. Tom continued his public service and became a police officer in Danbury, CT until his retirement in 1994 as Captain “The Boss” Commander of the Narcotics Tactical Team. Tom was married first to a wonderful woman, Mary Clowser Roman which afforded him an instant family after adopting baby Christopher whom he adored.

Tom enjoyed flying and received his pilot’s license in 1984. He also continued to care for his community and volunteered for many charitable organizations such as Meals on Wheels, helping special needs kids and participating in the Special Olympics. Tom liked to keep himself fit by working out every day even during his illness. He enjoyed golf where he met and married Susan. Together, they built a wonderful life full of travel, family and friends. Susan’s family adopted Tom as a son and brother who shall be greatly missed.

Anyone who knew Tom appreciated is good humor, caring nature and selflessness. He had a beautiful soul and his loss will be deeply felt especially by his loving wife Susan. It is a comfort to Tom’s family to know that he accepted the lord and is resting in eternal peace.
