Obituary for Thomas Moeller

Thomas A. Moeller

Husband, father, grandfather, brother, loyal friend, lover of life and story teller extraordinaire. On Wednesday, August 29, 2018 we lost perhaps the greatest man that many people have ever met. Tommy lived his life each day with a level of energy and zeal envied by most, both young and old.
Tom was born and raised in Connecticut, moving from Waterbury to New Britain as a teen. He was the omnipresent side kick of his older brother, John. Together the two navigated through life not only as brothers, but as true friends. It was at St. Thomas Aquinas High School where Tom first met the love of his life, Janice Richter. A high-school cheerleader, Jan worked the sidelines as Tom hoisted jump shots as the self - proclaimed greatest (and shortest) point guard to play the game. In fact, Tom’s claim to fame was scoring 61 points in a single game, although it is nearly impossible to find anyone who actually witnessed the feat.

After attending Central Connecticut State University, Tom settled in Orange where he worked in the insurance industry for many years. All of the time and energy Tom poured into his professional life was always secondary to his love for his family. Tom and Jan were blessed to raise two children, Megan and Christopher.

Tom proudly sent his kids to college where each met their future spouse. At the University of Connecticut, Meg met and married Robert Schumann, giving Tom and Jan two grandchildren, Evan and Ryan. As luck would have it, Megan, Rob and their children settled in a home directly behind her parents. Chris met his future bride, Abbey Benedum at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. They settled in Charlotte, North Carolina where they are currently raising two addition grandchildren, Austin and Kaitlynn.
Perhaps Tom’s most cherished role in life was that of a grandfather. After retiring, Tom helped on weekends at Lima Tile, affording him more time to help raise his grandkids. A daily presence in the lives of Evan and Ryan, “Gramps” found a new audience to share his endless life stories. As the “Three Amigos,” they spent countless hours bass fishing. Despite the distance, Tom seized every opportunity to travel to North Carolina and visit with his grandchildren, Austin and Kaitlynn. Weeks in the mountains, on a lake or at the beach, Tom treasured the time he spent watching the grandchildren grow.

Tommy simply made the world a better place. The stories recounted by those who knew him are a testament to his endless sphere of unintended influence. Tom loved being around people: Family, relatives, friends, neighbors, coworkers, basketball junkies. The “Road-Warrior” enjoyed time spent with Mr. V tooling around town in the little red “tic-tac.” Together, they solved the problems of the world and bantered their Red Sox / Yankee’s rivalry. He was passionate about many things, most importantly about life. In the lives he touched, Tom’s presence and influence is immeasurable. His big heart, sense of humor, and playful irreverence were the greatest gifts he shared. For those who knew him, the smiles and laughter will always be ours as we reflect on the man, the legend that was Tom Moeller.

Tom’s family is deeply appreciative of the outstanding care provided by his Yale New Haven Health care team. In lieu of flowers, Tom would encourage you to make someone laugh, tell someone how much they are loved, challenge a friend to shoot hoops or play a game of pool or maybe just drown a few worms at a local fishing hole.
