July 30, 1927 - January 27, 2018
Mitchell G. “Tom” Tomasini, Jr. passed away peacefully on January 27, 2018, at the age of 90. Tom was born on July 30, 1927 in San Antonio.
He grew up on his family’s ranch on Bitters Rd. and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School, then joined the Merchant Marines. Upon his return, he met his wife Mary Ellen Van Riper, whom he married in 1950. For a time, Tom worked at Southwestern Bell Telephone Company, however he soon found his lifelong niche working in sales, finally retiring at the age of 86. He and his wife Mary Ellen relocated to Boerne in 1990.
Tom was a loving and devoted son, husband, brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He was an avid supporter of Boerne baseball, basketball and 4-H, and loved hunting in Colorado. He truly enjoyed meeting with family and friends to share conversations and meals at Whataburger, Mague’s Café and the Rainbow Senior Center. He will be remembered for his kindness to both people and pets, and for his knack for jokes and storytelling.
He is preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, Mary Ellen; his parents; and his brother, Jake. He is survived by his two brothers, Robert and Tex; two daughters, Claire Segovia and husband Timo, Mary Bennett and husband Steve; four grandchildren, Heather Alston and husband Wes, Cassie Peeples and husband Mason, Sean Segovia and wife Haley, Sterling Bennett and wife Katie; and four great-grandchildren, Poppy Alston, Beau Segovia, and Amelia and Graham Peeples who all loved him dearly. We will miss him, but have peace knowing he is with loved ones in Heaven.
