Thomas J. Conway

Submitted by his wife

Tom Conway was a devoted husband and father‚ as well as a devoted firefighter. He joined the Haddon Heights Fire Department at the age of 20 and spent most of his time as a firefighter. In later years‚ Tom became captain of the fire police. After 57 years of service‚ he died in the line of duty‚ answering his last fire call. He answered almost every call. As he would say to me‚ ‘It’s in the blood‚ Joan.’

Tom had a deep affection for the town of Haddon Heights and was a member of the Haddon Heights Historical Society. His knowledge of the older buildings in town was very helpful to the fire department.

Tom’s greatest gift was his sense of humor. His day was not complete unless he made someone laugh.

Tom is survived by his wife‚ Joan; sons Thomas‚ Eddy (Maryal)‚ Tony (Kathy)‚ Michael (Maribeth); daughter Kathy (Frank); and 5 grandchildren Jimmy and Marianne Conway‚ Anthony Cusumano‚ Christopher Conway‚ and Tommy Weaver.
