Thomas R. Petti Sr.

September 22, 1940 ~ July 18, 2023 (age 82) 82 Years Old


Thomas R Petti, Sr. aged 82 years passed away July 18th, 2023, at Hospice House in Cleveland. Born September 22, 1940, to Nick and Anna (Klear) Petti.

Tom, like his father before him, enjoyed working on cars and always added a unique touch to his restorations and creations. He loved bargain hunting at flea markets, swap meets, and garage sales, but mostly he loved his family and was proud of each and every one of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as each individual was special to him. Tom was a proud member of The Local 18 Operating Engineers for over 50 years, and he could operate virtually any piece of heavy equipment. He truly had a hand in building the infrastructure of the Cleveland area, as one could hardly travel two miles without hearing Dad say, “I worked on that place”.

Thomas is survived by his daughters Lisa (James) Porostosky, Laura (Gary) Raznoff, sons, Thomas (Tawnya) Petti, Jr., and David (Jamie) Petti. He was preceded in death by his parents, and by his wife of over 50 years, Kathleen Petti.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date for family and close friends.

Donations in Tom’s honor can be made to Lakeshore Assembly of God, Mentor OH.
