Thomas Richard Schwartz Jr.

June 14, 1957 ~ November 8, 2021 (age 64)


Tommy entered into eternal rest Monday, November 8 after a week’s stay in the hospital fighting a hard fight with many illnesses. Thankfully one of them was not Covid.

He is survived by his loving wife, Patrice Cox, sister-in-law, Vicki Wolinsky, brother-in-law, Mark Wolinsky, mother-in-law, Yvonne Hart Sorey & her sister, Anne Hart Murrian & Lynne Hart Bowlby, many cousins, sister, Sue Ozimek and nephew, Roman Ozimek and many dear friends.

He is preceded in death by his best buddy & friend, his dad, Thomas Richard Schwartz, Sr. Followed by his loving mother, Cecilia “Happy” Schwartz.

Tommy had the gift of gab and he used it… Through his years, he developed and cherished friendships of many people.

He had a caring heart. He really cared for people.

He also loved his sports! The Giants & Yankees were up there high on the list and after that every sport out there he loved. He knew stats, years they were made and where he was when it happened.

He loved going to the Giants games with his dad back in the day!

The family will receive friends from 4:00pm-6:00pm on Monday, November 15, 2021 at Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel.
