Thomas William Corcoran

WILLIAMSBURG — Thomas William Corcoran, of Williamsburg, passed away suddenly on Feb. 4, 2014, at his residence, at the age of 54. Tom was born May 18, 1959, in Detroit, to John and Mary (East) Corcoran. Tom’s family moved to Traverse City in 1970.

Tom was a graduate of Traverse City Senior High School and attended NMC.

On May 27, 1989, Tom married the love of his life, Connie Smith, who survives him.

For the past 18 years Tom worked at The Traverse City Golf and Country Club creating tasty meals.

Tom enjoyed watching the Detroit Lions, primarily the first half, golfing, reading, movies and music.

Considered the fifth Beatle by those who knew him well, Tom never missed an opportunity to burst into song. His ability to make everyone laugh will be sorely missed.

Tom was predeceased by his father and his brother, Jim.

In addition to his wife, Connie, he is survived by his mother, Mary Corcoran; sisters, Margaret (Scott) Brown, of Holt, and Patricia (Brian Lemcke) Corcoran, of Sequim, Wash.; brother, Mike Corcoran, of Traverse City; in-laws, Vernon and Dorothy Smith; and several nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at 11 a.m., with visitation from 10 a.m., at the Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home.
