Hourihan, Thomas W.

July 04, 2005

On Thursday, June 30, 2005, after a five month fight with cancer, THOMAS W. HOURIHAN, 70, of Seaside Park, NJ. He was a star basketball player at Thomas Jefferson High School in his hometown of Elizabeth, NJ, before attending and graduating from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. After a service in the US Army, he built a successful career as a corporate executive in the insurance and employee benefits industry in Baltimore-Washington area. Although family, golf, and boating all competed for his time, he continued to work in semi-retirement until shortly before his death. He was active in the local Seaside Park Taxpayers' Association and as lector at St. Catherine's Catholic Church, Seaside Park. Though hard working, he was also fun loving, gifted with more than his share of Irish charm and magical connection with children. A loyal friend and loving family member, "Tucker" will be deeply missed by many, including his wife of 39 years, Constance (Quinn); his son and daughter-in-law, Paul and Teresa Hourihan; son, Kyle Hourihan; his daughter, Mariah Hourihan and fiance Sean Mc Clintock; and three brothers, Robert, James, and Peter, and their families. The Funeral Mass will be held at St. Catherine's R.C. Church, Seaside Park, on Wednesday, July 6, at 10 A.M. Visiting at church Tuesday, July 5, from 4 to 7 P.M. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center, PO Box 27106, New York, NY 10087-7106. Condolences may be sent via email to www.ryanfuneralhome.com
