Obituary

"Tom" Thomas Bradshaw Smith, of Bucks County, PA, passed away at home on Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

Born June 28, 1956, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Tom is survived by his son Tristan (Jess), daughter Meredith (Joseph) Zapisek, and four grandsons Ezra, Wyatt, and Logan Smith, and Isaac Zapisek, his former spouse Lora (Kleer) Smith, and partner Carole Johnson. Tom is also survived by his siblings Darcy Greenfield (William), Villas, New Jersey; Charles (Bernice) Buffalo, New York; Maureen Child (Paul), Elizabeth Rangel (Noe), Timothy, Kathleen Abbondanza (Dean), and Margaret Singer (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania). Tom is predeceased by his parents Louis Gill and Elizabeth Margaret (Clark) and his brother Francis Xavier.
Additionally, Tom is survived by 15 nieces and nephews, and 12 great-nieces and nephews.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Tom graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School in 1974, and then attended California University of Pennsylvania.
He was a Navy Veteran and worked as a Journeyman Electrician for IBEW Local 269 for the past 30 years.

Known for his wide range of interests, Tom was a dedicated Civil War history buff who also enjoyed studying WWII aircraft. He was a model train enthusiast -- his knowledge of trains surpassed only by his mission to get a train under every family member's Christmas tree. Tom was a member of the National Railway Historical Society, Train Collectors Association, and Sober Bikers United, for which he was recently voted in as a board member. He also enjoyed playing his ukulele on the beach and jamming out on guitar with his son and grandsons and could sometimes be spotted at local venues trying his hand at a music career. Tom was a man of many hobbies, which included riding motorcycles across the country, spending countless hours building models, working on his project cars, and casually flying kites in Cape May and at local parks.

"Pop-Pop" was a beloved grandfather, father, and brother, whose premature passing will leave a void in the lives of the many relatives who fondly remember him.

Friends and family are invited to Thomas' Life Celebration on Friday, October 29, 2021, from 6:30-8:00 pm and Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 10:00-11:00 am at the Dunn-Givnish Funeral Home, 378 S. Bellevue Avenue, Langhorne, PA 19047, immediately followed by his memorial service at 11:00 am.
