Of Malden, passed on April 21, 2022. Beloved oldest son of Jeanette Coleman and Thomas P. Coleman. Loving brother of William Coleman of Malden, James Coleman of Melrose, Theresa Coleman of Maine, Chris Coleman of Medford, Brian Coleman of Topsfield. Tommy was predeceased by his younger brother Paul Coleman. He was the loving godfather to his niece Colleen Scarpaci & nephew Thomas Gilbert. He was the loving uncle of Kathleen, Theresa, James, Christine, Katelyn, Kelliann, Christopher, Cristina, Danny, Hannah, Kyle, Cassyn, Gloria, Lyla, Lily & Fiona. Tommy grew up in Malden on Clinton Street and spent many days with his 26 first cousins the Wrights, Colemans and the Dunlevys. He graduated from Malden High School and received his bachelor’s degree from University of Massachusetts Boston, and he continued his education at Harvard Extension Business School. To say Tommy was a bookworm would be an understatement. He had over 10,000 books in his home many he had read over 3-4 times each. You could not enter Tommy’s home or apartment without finding a pile of books on the couch he was currently reading. He dedicated most of his life to being a constant companion to his mother. He enjoyed his coffee, his books, his walks around Boston, his trips to Wholefoods and his time working for the last 38 years at the Veterans Affairs and his many friends there. Tommy loved his relaxing quiet time at Lake Winnipesaukee and could often be seen riding his bike up Pleasant Street in Meredith. He was a quiet, kind & gentle man but had an opinion if you asked him. He watched and he paid attention to details, he had such a charming funny side to him that was so wonderful to watch with all his nephews and nieces. He was a wealth of knowledge and loved to share with you his travels from his time in the Coast Guard. Tommy served 6 years in the United States Coast Guard. He has left a legacy with his family, and they will forever miss his one liners as you walked in the door to visit him.
