Waterford — Thomas P. Norton, 76, of Waterford passed away peacefully March 30, 2021, at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital with his daughter Karen Perry by his side.
Thomas was predeceased by his parents, Alma Bergeron and Thomas Norton; the love of his life and wife of 22 years, Sandra Norton, March 28, 2019; and his 6-year-old daughter Jordonna Norton, who passed away May 24, 1988.
Thomas is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Karen and Todd Perry of Waterford; his granddaughter and husband, Maria and Joe Shyner and their four children, Kylee, Mason, Kennedy and Evan. Thomas has two sisters, many nieces and nephews, and a granddaughter with his late wife Sandy, named Riley. Leo Dousis and family also held a special place in Tommy’s heart, and Tom often referred to Leo as his son.
Thomas, also known as Tommy, will be missed by many and most remembered for the many years in the automotive industry, as well as being a very sharp dressed man. Tom attended Groton Schools and was a graduate of St. Bernard class of 1962. Tom and his classmates still keep in touch and Tom always looked forward to monthly get-togethers. Thomas will always be remembered as a great example of love and compassion and his ability to survive circumstances beyond anyone’s belief is commendable.
Tommy enjoyed the beach, especially Mago Point Beach, where he spent the last two summers with his family, teaching his grandkids how to swim.
Please join our family for a graveside service at 11 a.m. April 10, 2021, at Jordan Cemetery in Waterford. Arrangements are being made by Thomas L. Neilan & Sons East Lyme Funeral Home . Immediately following the graveside ceremony, we will gather for lunch at Langley’s at The Great Neck Country Club to celebrate Tom’s life.
