Thomas F. Broccoli

Collingswood - Thomas F. Broccoli passed away October 16, 2018, age 75, surrounded by his

Thomas dedicated 32 years of his career starting as a firefighter for the City of Camden and 
eventually working his way up to Fire Marshall, then Captain. He was an adoring husband to his 
wife of over 50 years, Sharon; a shining inspiration of enduring love and faith. Thomas' 
greatest joy was spending time with his family. He was a loving and involved father and 
grandfather. In spare time, Thomas liked to work around the house, play chess, bowl, catch a 
Philly Flyers game, and his favorite: golf. He was known for making outstanding meatballs and 
for being the ultimate grill master. Thomas loved music and had an unmatched affinity for 
classic Doo-Wop. He will be sadly missed by all who loved him and were impacted by him.
