Obituary For Thomas M. Lounsbury

Thomas Michael Lounsbury

12/17/46 – 7/7/21

Thomas M. Lounsbury, 74, of Bridgewater, Massachusetts passed away peacefully on July 7, 2021, surrounded by his family.

Tom was born on December 17, 1946 to parents Mary E. (Brown) Lounsbury and Arthur H. Lounsbury in Weymouth, Massachusetts.

He started truck driving at an early age, and was a very dedicated and hardworking person. He worked for Howland Disposal for many years, until he retired in 2016. He was known as “Papa Tom” to his friends and co-workers.

Tom had many interests. In his younger days, he loved camping and horses. He loved playing his numbers and scratching his scratch tickets. He liked old country music, and of course, big trucks and pickup trucks.

Despite working so much, Tom always found time for his family. He was generous and would bring gifts and food when visiting. He had a big heart and would truly do anything for his family. He was a fun person to be around, and was always joking and laughing. He was a proud man, as well he should have been, not only for the hard work he did, but all the great things he did for others. Tom left his mark on this world, and he left a great one at that.

Tom is survived by his wife Shirley A. (Fraher) Lounsbury, his three children; Thomas M. Lounsbury II, Patricia A. Lounsbury and Kimberly M. (Lounsbury) Ledoux and her husband, Richard E. Ledoux. He is also survived by his brother Arthur J. Lounsbury, his sister Lynne M. (Lounsbury) Spear, 8 grandchildren; Thomas III and Chris Lounsbury, Andrew and Joe Ledoux, Nathan and Carisa Noone, and Keith and Kaitlyn Meunier, 6 great grandchildren; Thomas IV, Bentley, Mason, Aiden, Luca and Riley, as well as many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his grandson Matthew Ledoux and his granddaughter Kelli Kinlin.

A wake will be held on Wednesday, July 21 from 4:00-7:00 PM at Magoun Biggins Funeral Home in Rockland. A funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, July 22 at 9:00 AM at Holy Family Church in Rockland, followed by a celebration of Tom’s life at the Rockland Golf Course.

    My deepest condolences to Tom's family. Tom and I worked together through Howland Disposal and Ocean Spray. He was always ready with a joke and a smile. His work ethic was tremendous and he really cared about the job he was doing for Ocean Spray. He will always be remembered fondly and I will miss his smile.

    What great memories if my childhood, Tom had the most breathtaking horse King, with all the silver on his bridle and saddle. As a child I also remember riding in the back of his pickup truck blaring Baba O' Reilly's ( teenage waste land) he was always so kind and giving Reebok sneakers to all the kids in the neighborhood. Tom will always bring a smile to face, he will be missed.💔
