GATES, NY – Unexpectedly, on June 2, 2023. Thomas is predeceased by his mother, Catherine M. Bacchetta. He is survived by his beloved, Lora Mosher; son Cameron; and daughter Catherine; siblings Cherlyn (John) Laley, Daniel Bacchetta, and Michelle Bacchetta; best friend and brother Louis (Heather) Bacchetta; 11 nieces and nephews; 8 great-nieces and nephews; and other loving family and friends.
Thomas enjoyed creating beautiful art. His passions inspired those around him – from art to exercise to music – his love for these things was apparent and infectious. He took tremendous pride in his work and was always pursuing new challenges in his field.
Thomas excelled in carpentry as he was constantly remodeling his home to suit his growing family. He was a computer “genius” and was always on call, willing to help his large family with technical issues. As the youngest of his mother’s children, he made sure to keep the memory of her alive. Thomas’ love for his daughter was unmatched. Such a love will live on in his little girl, who shares his goofy laugh and smile.
Inurnment will be held privately. A memorial/celebration of life gathering will be held on Tuesday, June 20th, from 3 – 8 PM at the Rotary Lodge in Greece Canal Park, 241 Elmgrove Road, Rochester, NY 14626.
