Thomas Carthy, age 64, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, passed away on April 7, 2023, after a difficult battle with cancer. He was surrounded by family and friends who loved him dearly.
Tom was born on November 8, 1958, in Calgary, Alberta. He was the son of Theresa and James Carthy and brother to Maureen Carthy. Tom attended St. Francis High School and went on to study commerce at the University of Calgary. After graduation, he was hired by Nova Corporation, where he worked in finance and built his career for over 40 years, eventually becoming Vice President of Corporate Financial Planning and Tax services.
Tom married his wife, Lynn, on August 6, 1983. They were blessed with 40 years of love, devotion and tremendous respect for one another. Together they raised their two sons, Sean and Stephen (Ali). In March 2000, Tom was transferred to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh quickly became home for Tom and his family.
Tom was so loved and will be missed by many. He was an intelligent man with a sharp, dry sense of humor. He was extremely tender hearted, generous, loving and nurturing. Despite his shyness, he was very gifted at connecting with people in the most sincere manner. He was an avid reader and especially fond of anything historical. A man of strong faith, he loved the simplest things in life – sharing good food and wine with people he loved, sitting on the deck watching the rain fall, going for brisk walks in the morning, having crazy analytical conversations with his wife, fishing with his boys at the cottage, and going to bed surrounded by a menagerie of furry friends.
On Saturday, April 29, visitations will be held at 10:30 AM at Zion Lutheran Church, followed by a church service at 11:00am, and a luncheon immediately following in the fellowship hall. Zion Lutheran Church is located at 3197 Washington Pike, Bridgeville, PA 15017.
Arrangements Entrusted to WILLIAM SLATER II FUNERAL SERVICE, Scott Twp. (412-563-2800).
