Thomas C. Lydick, 79, of Jeannette, passed away Saturday, July 03, 2021. He was born November 01, 1941, in New Alexandria, a son of the late Byrum and Beatrice Steiner Lydick. He loved adventures as much as he loved people. His first big adventure was being drafted by the Army. He spent time stationed in Korea and Colorado Springs, Colorado where he met his wife, Jennie. They’d eventually spend the next 55 years together. Tom was the proud owner of an excavating business, eventually going on to work for AmeriGas, a company he later retired from. As a proud military veteran, he supported the work of VFW Post 33. Tom was a life-long Pirates fan. He enjoyed: watching Dale Earnhardt race; playing softball and cheering on his grandchildren. He enjoyed going to camp with his buddies, sauerkraut-making season, listening to classic country music, and waging war on the groundhogs as he protected his garden. Tom lived life to the fullest and could brighten a day with his smile and twinkling eyes. He loved his family dearly. Tom and his brothers could spend hours telling tales of their days on the farm entertaining their children - the “Dirty Dozen.” In addition to his parents, he is proceeded in death by his grandson, Zachary. Tom is survived by his wife of fifty-five years, Jennie Lydick, whom he adored, his daughters, Marie (Richard) Munsie, Diane (David) Kun, Patricia (Robert) Vince, Jennifer Prince and his seven grandchildren, Daniel, Anthony, AnnaMarie, Dominic, Jonathon, Delaney and Sydney. Tom was blessed with a large extended and loving family. Relatives and friends are invited to celebrate the life of Tom, Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 11a.m., the time of services, in the Clement L.
