Thomas E. McCarthy

Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Saturday, February 15th, from 12:00 p.m. (Noon) to 3:00 p.m., in the Vertuccio and Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway  (Rt. 107) REVERE for Thomas E. McCarthy, who died on Sunday February 9th in his Beachmont home, with his loving family by his side after a most courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer, he was 54 years old. Tom had a final request, that all of his friends & family who attend his visitation, please be dressed casually, wear a Boston Sports Team T- Shirt or that of a favorite Band T-shirt. Interment will be private.

Tom was a very proud lifelong resident of the Beachmont section in Revere. He was an alumnus of Revere High School, Class of 1983. He married Anne (Sciarappa) on April 1st, 1990. Later this year, they would have celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. They remained in Revere, where they raised their two daughters, Teresa & Amanda.  Tom worked as a Group Leader in the Printing Division for Massachusetts Medical Society, a position he held for over 31 years until his health declined. Anyone who knew Tom, knew that he was more than just a Boston Sports Fan, he was unequivocally an enthusiast & collector. Tom loved his Boston Sports Teams, but the Patriots & Red Sox were his favorites. Although, he did very much enjoy watching the Celtics during the Larry Bird Era. Tom was a very humble man who was dedicated to his family. He was a modest man, and even at this time of sorrow, he wouldn’t want people mourning him, but to be celebrating his life with memories & a toast or two.

He is the devoted husband of Anne T. (Sciarappa) McCarthy of Revere. Proud & loving father of Teresa A. McCarthy – O’Hara & husband Revere Police Officer Kevin O’Hara of Beverly & Amanda M. McCarthy & companion Justin E. Esiason of Worcester. Beloved son of the late Joseph F., Sr. & Elizabeth A. (Tupper) McCarthy. Cherished brother of Joseph F. McCarthy & wife Anne of Rockland & Kathleen E. Maxwell & husband Michael of Hookset, New Hampshire. Dear son-in-law of Sandra Sciarappa & husband Alphonse “Al” Yoviene of Boynton Beach, Florida & dear brother-in-law of Catherine M. Murray of Malden. He is also survived by many loving nieces & nephews.
