Obituary for Thomas D'Errico

May 26, 1927 - December 4, 2020
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania | Age 93


Thomas D'Errico, most recently of Philadelphia, PA and formerly of Langhorne, PA, was beamed aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise on Friday, December 4, 2020 from Jefferson Torresdale Hospital following a mighty battle with COVID-19. He was 93 years young. Thomas, or Tom as everyone knew him, was born May 26, 1927 in Trenton, NJ; son of the late Frank and Grace Chianese D'Errico.

Tom had a long career in real estate, was a keen Star Trek fan, lover of martinis (shaken, not stirred and with one olive), and devoted father, grandfather and great grandfather. Tom was also a veteran of World War II, where he served as a medic caring for injured soldiers that returned home from the battlefield. He labored to ensure none of them died alone, much like the nurses, doctors, and medical staff at Jefferson Torresdale who went to extraordinary lengths to ensure that he did not die alone in a COVID unit.

Tom was predeceased by his beloved wife, Margaret (Scordia), and his two sisters, Theresa Tulodieski and Loretta Layton. He is survived by his children Dr. Maria Grace D'Errico, of Bucks County; Frank D'Errico, of Bucks County; Francine D'Errico, of Bucks County; Geraldine D'Errico and her partner Kevin Stoneback, of Bucks County. Tom is also survived by his son-in-law Ron Offredo, of Bucks County.

He leaves behind his sister-in-law and dear friend Vincentine (Jean) Deon, of Bristol, PA. Tom is survived by his grandchildren; Jon Offredo and his wife Jen, of Dover, DE. And Olya Cooler (Offredo) and her husband Dustin, of Green Lane, PA. Tom was the great grandfather to Kandice, Karman and Kaysa. He is also survived by his niece Kathleen Layton and her husband Mike O'Neil, of Newtown, PA; nephew Joseph Francis Layton of Hamilton Township, NJ. Tom is also survived by his loving companion Dorothy (Dot) Mosiniak, of Penndel, PA.

The family will have a small, private burial and plans to hold a celebration of life at a later date where they can raise a glass (or three) for Tom as he would have wanted. Contributions can be made in Tom's name to the Special Olympics of Bucks County. The family requests that no flowers be sent.

In the words of Tom's beloved Mr. Spock: Live long and prosper (and wear a mask).
