Visitation at Main Service
Obituary of Thomas Muniz
On December 6, 2021, Thomas Muniz passed away at the age of 73 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born June 14, 1948 in Manhattan, NY to Monserrate and Norma (Nieves) Muniz. He proudly served his country in the Vietnam war and worked for NY telephone/Verizon for 31 years. He married Roseva (Kiss) December 20, 1987. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, pastor, royal ranger, troop leader, camp kid, friend and neighbor.
Tom was a devote Christian who lived his life to make the lives of others better. He always had a story to tell and a way of making people laugh. He loved his wife, his family and his missionary work. He was also the only Puerto Rican from New York City that could pull off a cowboy hat and bolo tie with his Yankees jersey.
He was preceded in death by his father (Monserrate), mother (Norma) and stepfather (Tom Naporski). He is survived by his wife, Roseva; stepchildren, Jeremy (Sarah) and Tim (Sydne) Muratore; sister, Anita (Tony) Peña, their children Andrew (Manu) Peña and Margaux (Jim) Hufnagel. He is also survived by 3 loving grandchildren (Lucas, Monroe, Sutton) that will miss their “Papi”.
Words cannot express the hole in our hearts that Tom has left that may only be healed by faith.
