In memory of
Thomas J. Burns
Thomas J. Burns AGE: 56 • Eatontown Thomas J. Burns, 56, died at his Eatontown home Sunday October 9, 2016. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Richard and Martha Burns, and his brother Richard. He is survived by his siblings and their spouses: Chris and wife Terry Burns, Keyport; Barbara and husband Tom Hettwer, Freehold; Marianne and husband Ed Stelmaszczyk, Kinnelon; Andrew Burns, Keyport; Bill Burns, Eatontown; niece, Patricia Stelmaszczyk, and nephews, Michael Stelmaszczyk and William Muller. He was a graduate of Middletown High School North and attended Rowan University and NYU Film School. He was passionate about reading, music, photography, and architecture, particularly the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Tom worked in the pool business, construction management, real estate, sales, and customer service. He enjoyed skiing, snowboarding, and golf and also tried his hand at bungee jumping and skydiving. Tom was everyone's go-to guy. He was fearless in all disciplines: plumbing, carpentry, electrical and small engines. Consulting instructions or an online "how to" was always the last resort. A memorial service for Tom will be announced by the family at a later date. For more information, to send condolences or for directions, please visit www.pflegerfh.com .
