Thomas Nyhan

Thomas Patrick Nyhan, Jr., of La Grange Park, IL, passed away suddenly on May 21, 2016 at the age of 45. He was the best husband in the world to Loretta Nyhan, nee Roach, and the kindest, most loving father to Dan and Jack, of whom he was very proud. He was so loved by his parents Tom, and Maureen Nyhan, nee Brennan, and his in-laws, Henry and Maxine Roach, nee Navarro. Dearest brother of Mike Nyhan, Erin (Alex) Sinvare, and Dan (Ann) Nyhan. Dear brother-in-law of Joyce (Brent) Georgi and Steven (Lori) Roach. He was the “fun uncle” to Seamus, Liam, Maura, Alex, Max, Liam, and Camden. Tom worked hard, and played harder. He brightened every room he entered. He will be missed more than we can express.

    Wow, so sorry to hear of the Nyhan Family’s loss. The statement in the obituary that he brightened every room he entered is certainly not aggrandizement; THAT is the Tom, “Noonan”, I cam to know.
