5/28/1943 – 3/16/2020
It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas John Strasser, age 76, surrounded by his family on March 16, 2020.
Thomas was born on May 28, 1943 in Queens, N.Y. to Robert and Elizabeth (Rodecker) Strasser. Thomas graduated from Samuel Gompers Industrial High School in the Bronx. He married the love of his life, Nora D. McKinnon on June 6, 1970 at St. Benedict’s in the Bronx, N.Y. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and was extremely proud of serving his country during the Vietnam War.
Thomas worked as an AT&T Communications Manager. Family was the most important thing to Thomas and spending time with his three cherished grandchildren brought him tremendous joy.
Thomas is survived by his beloved wife, Nora Strasser, his loving children, Craig and his wife Jessica (Friedman) Strasser of Watertown, CT, and Marla and her husband Christopher Batchie of Danbury, CT. He also leaves behind his three, much-loved grandchildren, Andrew Batchie, Connor Batchie and Molly Strasser. His siblings, Robert R. Strasser, Ginger DiGiacomo, Cathy Grossi, JoAnn Stonebridge, Christine Wilcox and Patty Schuler all survive him. Thomas will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
A Memorial Mass to celebrate Thomas’s life will be held sometime in the future.
Cremation will be private.
