July 3, 1931 - March 21, 2018
Thomas B. Daly, a lifelong resident of the Bronx, died peacefully on March 21, 2018, at the age of 86. He is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years, Kathleen (McGurn), his children, Tom (Carol McEwen), Deborah (Mike Powdermaker), Laurieann (Bill Kelly) and grandchildren, Mary Daly Ashraf (Mike), Dr. Margaret Daly (Josh Jaouli) and Leanne and Zachary Powdermaker. His adored son, Brian, who Dad shared a passion for Jazz music with, passed away on January 23, 2018, at the age of 60. Dad was the owner and operator of the trucking firms Port Morris Transportation Corporation and Bowman Brothers Trucking until the late 80's, when he then embarked on a new career operating a calendar service for attorneys in the Bronx Housing Court. His many interests included singing, golf, model trains, painting and gardening. He loved watching the NY Mets and NY Giants and his children fondly remember spending many evenings with him at Shea Stadium in the 1960s. They also have great memories of many summers on the family boat, TomKat, and evenings watching Dad take care of his beautiful garden. He served with the United States Marine Corps during the Korean conflict. His family will miss his wry sense of humor and his beautiful singing voice, which has been preserved on recordings from parish shows and WFUV radio from the fifties and sixties. A funeral mass will be held on April 10 at 10 am at St. Clare of Assisi Church, 1918 Paulding Avenue, Bronx, NY 10462. Burial for our beloved Father and Brother will immediately follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, 4199 Webster Ave, Bronx, NY, 10470. Tom and Carol Daly will receive condolence visitors at their home, 68 Algonquin Road, Yonkers, NY 10710 from 6-8:30 pm on April 10. Donations can be made to Calvary Hospital in the Bronx (calvaryhospital.org) on behalf of Brian and Thomas Daly.
