Obituary of Thomas J McKee
Thomas J. McKee, age 71, of Washington Township, NJ passed away on June 3, 2018.
Thomas McKee was a lifelong learner, and a man of endless curiosity. He was a voracious reader of literature, science, and cookbooks. He loved his family with great intensity, and always did his best to protect his loved ones. One of his greatest legacies is the impact he left on all of the students that he encouraged throughout his career as a high school teacher and college instructor. Often, former students would reach out to him to let him know about the positive impact that his teaching had on their lives. Tom loved animals and nature, and was most at home with his dogs, and his books, in his garden.
Beloved husband of nearly 8 years, and best friend for even longer to Laura A. (née Nardone); Devoted stepfather of James (Stephanie) and Francesca (Steve); Adored son of the late Mary (née Masher) and Thomas J. McKee; Dear brother to Maryanne Erwin (Joseph) and the late Joseph McKee (survived by Millissa); Treasured uncle to Charles, Brigette, and Cèlestine.
