Obituary

Thomas Morosky, 91, of Norwich, CT, and Delray Beach, FL, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on June 2, 2017, at Bayview Health Care Center in Waterford, CT. Tom was born on December 28, 1925, in Montville, CT, the second son of Michael and Caroline (Chop) Morosky. He attended Norwich schools and graduated from Norwich Free Academy in 1943. He distinguished himself as Class Athlete by excelling at numerous sports, including baseball, basketball, and football.
Tom joined the US Air Force in 1944 and served in WWII as a CFC gunner on the crew of Margie's Mad Greek III, a B29 based on Tinian Island in the Northern Marianas. The crew's mission was to take photos of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, both before and after the US bombings that turned the tide of WWII.
Upon returning from the war, Tom married his sweetheart, Lorraine Valentine, and attended Arnold College, from which he graduated in 1950. He went to work for Andersen Supply Company and then for Dahl Oil, where his charm and gift of gab made him the best salesman and customer service rep in the business. He retired from Dahl as VP of sales in 2007, after working there for 55 years.
Tom was predeceased, just three months ago, by his son, Thomas Michael. He is survived by his wife of 69 ½ years, his daughter and son-in-law, Pam and Franz Edson, his grandsons, TC Meyer and Matthew Morosky and his sister Joanne Fusaro.
Per Tom's wishes, there will be no formal service or burial. A celebration of his life will be held at a future date at the family's convenience,
Donations in Tom's memory may be made by mail to the NFA Foundation, Inc, 321 Broadway, Norwich, CT 06360, or on-line at nfaschool.org.
Tom's family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the Staff at Bayview who have lovingly attended to and cared for "The Lollipops" for the past two years.
