CAMPBELL, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Thomas Joseph Medina passed from this earth on Thursday, December 31, 2020.
Tom was born February 6, 1957 to Dominic and Augustina Medina in Campbell, Ohio.
He attended and received his sacraments at St. Joseph the Provider School in Campbell.
Tommy graduated from Leonard Kirtz School in Austintown in 1977. He then attended the Masco & Javit Court Workshops.
As a child Tom reveled in playing games with his sisters, Dolores and Tina Marie and his many cousins. Kickball, basketball and baseball were among his favorite games and he thoroughly loved to swim and be in the water. Without a question, ice cream was his favorite treat. Tom also enjoyed listening to music while sitting in his favorite chair or on the floor; he could be heard singing along with the Beatles and their #1 hits!
He was blessed to be cared for by two loving parents in every respect for 63 years and his doting sisters, Tina Marie (his papoose) and Dolores (Loli)
He is once again reunited with his father who affectionately called him “Majo”
He is survived by his mother, Tina; his sisters, Dolores (Ron) Eusanio of California and Tina Marie (Anthony) DeFelice of Poland and many nieces and nephews who will miss their “Uncle Tom”
A special Thank You goes out to Grace Hospice, Robin Land, Tommy’s SSA and Tommy’s caregivers, Wyvette Williams, Gail McGeorge and Sherdena Dixon, for their kindness, care and treatment of Tommy.
