On Sunday, January 31, 2021, Thomas T. Cardoni, loving husband and father of three passed away at the age of 86.
Tom was born on July 29, 1934 in Akron Ohio to Thomas and Mary Cardoni. On December 27, 1958, he married Carol Eisenhut. They raised one son, Tom and two daughters, Monica and Gina.
Tom served two years active duty from 1957-1959 in the US Army. After serving his country, he began his career with his brother, John at National Towing and Truck. In 1975, he went to work for Kenmore Construction, where he worked for over 45 years until his retirement at age 84. At Kenmore Construction, Tom “found a home” working many years alongside his son, Tom, in “The Shop”. He was a proud member of Operating Engineers Local 18. Tom was known for his amazing gift to fix just about anything and everything, for anyone. His unrelenting work ethic was unmatched: he never tired of working and found pride in all that he accomplished. Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him, but we know he will be working hard in heaven watching over us all.
