Thomas C. Eaton 8/21/48 to 4/17/20
Tom was born to Eugene B. and Carolyn M. Eaton. From an early age, Tom loved being on the water and got his first fishing license at the age of 6. From that beginning, he went on to fish from Hampton Roads, Va., to the Canadian border. Even though Tom chose to branch away to follow his love of fishing, Little Deer Isle was always home.
Tom was an Army veteran of the Vietnam War. He held the rank of past commander of VFW Post 6977, belonged to the American Legion Post 56, Elks Lodge 2788 and the Moose.
Tom was predeceased by his father, Eugene B. Eaton, grandparents Harold and Lilliam Eaton, Elmer B. and Sybil Eaton, as well as his father-in-law Everett Billings. He is survived by his wife, Kathleen, mother, Carolyn, mother-in-law Betty Billings, siblings Susan and Roger Zarzychi and Richard and Esther Eaton, siblings-in-law Dana and Barbara Billings, Brian and Annette Billings, Beth and Paul Bigler, Jerry and Prudence Billings and Brad and Suzanne Billings, and several nieces and nephews who make up this great family, and all the amazing friends he has made along the way.
All who met Tom know he loved to tell a great whopper or pull a prank, so think of them, and we will have a celebration of his life at a future date.
