Obituary

“Thomas J. Klinka, beloved husband and father”

On September 20, 2020, Tom Klinka, beloved husband and eternal soulmate of Veronica, passed on from this life while at home surrounded by family and in a peaceful manner. He was a proud and caring father of three daughters, Elisia, Alana and Melissa, a trusted brother of Bill and his wife Linda, and a fun loving pop pop to grandsons, Magnus and Miles. He was predeceased by Ma and Dad, Mary & Bill Klinka Sr. A lifelong resident who was born and raised in the Byram section of Greenwich, Tom served as sergeant in the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War. He was a proud veteran. He received a BA in philosophy, with honors, from UConn Storrs. Tom was head chemist for over twenty years at RH Carlson in Greenwich, specializing in polymer proponents. He was an enthusiastic semi-professional soccer player, avid antique collector, talented award-winning photographer, and devoted rock’n’roll music aficionado. He attended the original Woodstock, and hundreds of other concerts over many decades. Tom had a recent exhibit of his rock’n’roll photography shown at the Byram Shubert Library in 2019.
Friends are welcome to join us at St. Mary’s Cemetery, in Greenwich at 2 pm on Thursday, September 24 for a brief outdoor service. At a later and safer time, we will have a memorial to celebrate Tom’s life.
