Thomas T. Wilson

June 5th, 2020

Thomas T. Wilson, 69, lost his courageous battle with ALS on June 5th, 2020, at home with his loving family by his side.

Tom was the son of the late George and Lillian Wilson, he is survived by his wife of 40 years, Debra Wilson, daughters Sheila Leaden of Andover, MA and Jennifer Garvey of Chelmsford, MA, five grandchildren, his sister Bette Dayton and her husband Doug of Texas, several nieces and nephews and Tom’s furry pal, Willie.

Tom was born and raised in Wilmington, MA and graduated from Wilmington High School Class of 1968. Tom enjoyed spending time with his family, watching all sports and keeping his vehicle in pristine condition. He was a wiz at math being able to multiply 2-3 digits in his head and have the answer in seconds.

There will be a Celebration of Life at a future date and time. Please consider a donation in Tom’s memory to the Merrimack Valley Hospice, 360 Merrimack St. Bldg. 9, Lawrence, MA 01843.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Nichols Funeral Home, Wilmington, MA.

    So sad to hear of Tom’s passing. He was such a good guy, incredibly funny. He will missed.

  7. Patrick Caron says:

    Although I haven’t really had time with Tom, I have had the pleasure of spending many chats with his wife Debbie throughout the years. Enough to know that Tom was an amazing husband and lover to her, that he praised his daughters, furry friend and his wife like no other.
    They say from dust you came and to dust you will return but it’s never easy to loose someone you love so dearly.
    The most important to help in letting go of the suffering and pain of this loss is to focus on the fact that he is not suffering anymore.
    Although ALS has won the battle over Tim, his memory will live on through his wife, kids, grand children and all his friends.
    May he have the honour to Rest In Peace.

  8. Ethan Chase says:

    I had the distinct pleasure of being Tom’s dentist for the past two plus years. I especially enjoyed our conversations about the Pats, Red Sox and NASCAR. I also know how much he loved his corn-on-the-cob and a good steak! I am thankful for his recommendations for where I could buy the said best steak! He was well liked by all in our office and he will certainly be missed. On behalf of myself and all of us at Gentle Dental North Andover, we wish to extend our deepest sympathy to Debra and the family.

  9. Debbie Banda says:

    Sympathies on behalf of the Banda family. Many wonderful memories of George and Lil, Tom and Betty, and families… those lobster cookouts and early morning backyard breakfasts on Marie Drive. RIP Tom.

  10. Bob Edwards says:

    I know what a struggle you both had, Deb. Take comfort that you did all you could, and that now Tom is in a better place.
