Thomas was retired from Kodak and active member of FLLS Train club in Lyons, NY. Family was the most important thing to him and always came first from being a protective big brother to his sister and brother, a caring and responsible son, a devoted husband, a loving father and being the kind of papa that was like a best friend. He always looked at the beauty in the world and although he was a man of few words when he did have something to say it was always positive. Tom was a gentleman in every sense of the word. He had more love to give than his body could hold and will be greatly missed by so many.
A memorial to celebrate Tom’s life will be held on Sunday May 23rd at 1:00 pm at Mertensia Park in Farmington, NY. Please check Tom Aselin’s Facebook page for updates regarding memorial and to share your memories and photos of Tom.
