MARSTONS MILLS – Thomas L. Urbon of Marstons Mills passed away April 2, 2016 after a courageous struggle with A. L. S. (Lou Gehrig’s disease). He was the beloved husband of Nancy (Bachman) Urbon.
Born in Brockton on March 14, 1953 to Stanley and Irena (Lingvevicius) Urbon, Tom grew up in South Boston and Dorchester. He attended St. Mark’s Elementary School in Dorchester and graduated from Boston English High School, class of 1971.
Tom had a passion for the ocean, fishing, boating, and exploring the great outdoors. He loved to garden and was a great cook. He could fix anything. A talented singer, he was chosen to sing at Boston Symphony Hall in his youth. We will always remember his deep booming voice, singing and laughing.
