Thomas Francis McCloskey, III of Doylestown, PA passed away on Sunday, January 20, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 44 years old.

A lifelong Pennsylvanian resident, Tom was born and raised in Philadelphia before relocating to Bucks County in 2008.

For most of his professional life, Tom’s career of choice was that of an electrician, a trade in which sparked pride and enjoyment particularly during his past six years at Bucks County Water & Sewer Authority. Tom was known for his friendly demeanor, strong work ethic, love for his family and a penchant for heavy metal. As a proud former member and Honor Guard of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Fishtown and Doylestown, Tom embraced his Irish heritage and brotherhood. Cooking was among Tom’s celebrated interests as noted by his fondness for extended family dinners for upwards of twenty people which were held several times a year. He was not one to shy away from whipping up an untraditional or exotic dish and his pineapple stuffing was a family favorite. Music was the spice of life for Tom; his daily life would not be complete without an array of genres spilling from his home and car speakers. An avid collector of vinyl records and enthusiasm for live music, Tom was passionate about attending concerts, with a *good* month entailing weekend-long music festivals. As a native Philadelphian, it should go without saying Tom was loyal to the EAGLES!

Tommy was the beloved husband of eight years to Jennifer Eagen-McCloskey. He was a devoted father of three sons and three daughters; Tucker McCloskey and fiancé Fawn, Billy McCloskey and partner Saige, Nicky McCloskey and partner McKenna, Kiera McCloskey, Frances McCloskey and Bella Kobrzynski. A kind son of the late Patricia (Craven) McCloskey, Tommy was also the cherished grandson of his beloved grandmother, Felicia McCloskey. In addition, Tom was a dear brother of Jimmy McCloskey, Steve McCloskey and wife Melissa, Liz McCloskey and partner Steve, and not to mention a much loving grandfather of Lux, Kasey and Logann McCloskey and Aramey and Josiah LaBoy. Lastly, he was a much loved son-in-law of Patricia Eagen, Ed Eagen and wife Akiyo Doi-Eagen; brother-in-law of Mike Eagen and wife Linda; brother-in-law of Beth Eagen-Malone and husband Dan. Thomas is also greatly loved and survived by nieces Maggie, Chela, Ellie, Clara, Melissa and Felicia as well as his nephews Steven, Gabe, Michael, Brandon, Jesse and TJ. His dog, Jebediah, will miss him.

A viewing will be held at the Varcoe-Thomas Funeral Home, 344 North Main Street, Doylestown, PA 18901 on Friday, January 25th from 6:00-8:00 pm.

A viewing will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 5175 Cold Spring Creamery Road, Doylestown, PA 18902 on Saturday, January 26th from 10:00-11:30 am, followed by a mass at 11:30 am.

Private cremation will follow.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the American Cancer Society, 1818 Market Street, Suite 2820, Philadelphia, PA 19103 or www.cancer.org in addition to Manna on Main Street, 606 E. Main Street, Lansdale, PA 19446 or https://mannaonmain.org. Tom had hoped to begin the volunteer process at Manna once he had returned to work.

I saw that Tom had hoped to volunteer at Manna, which really struck me because I had been thinking the same thing. I volunteered there in the past with Rae. Peace and love to your family

Tommy, I'll never forget hanging out behind the Spectrum and in front of the Troc with you before numerous shows. Especially when I did the big picture on the back of your leather while we waited for Vince Neil sans Motley Crue. I think my grandmother had a crush on you. Say Hi to her when you see her. She'd like that. I'm going to miss you my friend.
Until we meet again
