Thomas "Tom" Anderson, 63, passed away at Tampa General Hospital. Born in Niagara Falls, New York to Murray and Gertrude Anderson, Tom grew up in a loving household with his parents and brothers. He worked summers at Our Lady of Fatima Shrine and graduated from LaSalle High School. As a young man, Tom moved to Tampa where he spent the remaining years of his life. A City of Tampa employee, Tom was a committed worker who enjoyed classic cars, car shows, woodworking, and spending time with his loved ones. He took time to return to Niagara Falls to see his family if it wasn’t "too cold" to visit. A loving son, brother, and uncle, Tom is predeceased by his father, Murray. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Tom is survived by his mother, Gertrude; brothers Daniel (Yvonne), James (Maureen), and David (Sally); nephews Brett and Matthew; niece Sara; and many cousins. A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family with entombment in Acacia Park. Donations made to the Palliative Care Service, Tampa General Hospital Foundation: PO Box 1289, Tampa, FL 33601 - 1289.
