Obituary for Thomas P. McKevitt

McKevitt, Thomas P. Oak Lawn, IL

Thomas Patrick McKevitt, 60, of Oak Lawn, IL passed away peacefully on December 12 surrounded by family. Born on April 5, 1961 to the late James and Catherine McKevitt. Tom was happily married to his loving wife Joanne (nee Cerceo) for 32 years and was the loving father of Thomas, Michael, and Patrick. Beloved brother to James (Marianne) McKevitt, Eileen (late Daniel) Tobin, Michael (Mary Ann) McKevitt, Mary Kay (Timothy) Tholl. John (Denise) McKevitt, and Donald (Karen) McKevitt. Cherished son-in-law to Alfred and Betty Cerceo and brother-in-law to Bernadette (John) Lux and the late Thomas (late Mary) Cerceo. Dedicated uncle to numerous nieces and nephews and a loyal friend to many. Proud graduate of Marist High School and Western Illinois University. Committed leader at Shibaura Machine Company, America. One of Tom’s greatest qualities was his ability to seek out new experiences and to appreciate life’s beautiful moments – both big and small. He found joy in creating unique, memorable experiences for family and friends alike. Near the end of his life, he was happiest spending time with Joanne and his boys at their lake home in Whitewater, WI. Tom will be remembered most for his immense dedication to his family as he spent his life providing in every way for his wife and sons. The example he set as a caring, hardworking and generous man will live on through his boys whom he loved dearly.
