Thomas J. Burawski

August 5, 1965 - May 15, 2024

Thomas Joseph Burawski, 58, of Hamilton, died suddenly on Wednesday, May 15, 2024.


Born in Rhinebeck, New York he resided in Hamilton Township most of his life. He was an alumnus of Hamilton High School West.


Tom was a gentle giant who enjoyed visiting with family and friends. His hobbies included working on his computer, coin collecting and reading science fiction and mystery novels. He was also a fan of the original Star Trek and Dr. Who television shows. Tom was a devout Catholic who never missed a mass or holy day of obligation. He was a wonderful son who in later years accompanied his mother to all her appointments. He was also dedicated to helping her to maintain her home and he tended to all of her yard work. He was a kind soul who will always be remembered for his optimism and generosity. He never had a bad word to say about anyone, he enjoyed giving gifts and he rarely forgot a loved one’s birthday. He will be sorely missed.
