OBITUARY:

Thomas E. “Tom” Maguire passed away at the Winchester on Thursday, April 7th. The beloved husband of the late Sally (Fitzgerald) Maguire he was eighty two years of age.

A life long Woburnite, Tom was the son of the late Peter C. and Catherine (McGah) Maguire. Raised and educated in Woburn, Tom was a graduate of Woburn High School along with the Class of 1951. Following high school Tom served proudly in the United States Air Force during the Korean War.

Tom was introduced to Sally Fitzgerald at a house party in Woburn during the mid fifties. In 1958 they began their journey together as husband and wife, which brought them to fifty one wonderful years. Having brought three sons and a daughter into the world, Tom was always busy! He worked as a Firefighter at Hanscom Air Force Base for over thirty years. Also during those years he worked along side his Woburn buddies at Mayflower Moving Co, when it was then owned by a local family. Always being a wonderful provider for his family, after Mayflower was sold he then went to Admiral Metals, where he was the Warehouse Foreman. In 2010 Tom made the decision to retire and spend time with his family.

Throughout Tom’s life when he approached each and every position he ever held, it was with great commitment to do the best he could possible do. Tom never took a sick day! Nor was there ever a day that he was not present to his family. He loved his family dearly and when he was not working he was right there with them tending to whatever their needs were. Vacations at Hampton Beach were always the best! Family and friends would gather there, they would walk the beach, the boulevard, and to Boar’s Head, see old friends and meet new ones, have cookouts and of course lots of fun in the sun! It was all about spending time together. When the grandchildren began arriving they too would join in the fun, which truly fulfilled Tom’s life.

Listening to big band music was a favorite of Tom’s. A veracious reader, he thoroughly enjoyed many genres and never missed a newspaper from front to back each day. Tom was also a very staunch supporter of Notre Dame football, proudly wearing his ND hat during his “off” time!

Truly a man of kindness, integrity and sensitivity throughout his life time, Tom’s family couldn’t have been prouder to have had him as their Dad.

Sadly Tom was predeceased by his wife Sally and sister Kay Adams.

He is lovingly survived by his children Thomas E. Maguire,Jr., and wife Michelle of Woburn, Daniel J. Maguire and wife Anne-Marie, of Tewksbury, Edward F. Maguire and wife Heather of Woburn, and Michelle Brennan and husband Sean of Woburn. Dear brother of Joseph Maguire of Dracut. Loving “Grampy~Beam” of Kaitlyn, Erin Shannon, Thomas, Madelyn, Sean and Elle. Also survived by loving nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend calling hours Monday, 4 – 8 p.m. Remembrances may be made in Tom’s memory to Woburn High School Scholarship Fund, PO Box 202, Woburn, MA 01801.
