NORWOOD -- Thomas David Kiereck, 58, of River Road tragically and unexpectedly passed away Monday evening, June 8, 2020 at the University of Vermont Medical Center.
Tom was born September 30, 1961 in Rochester, the son of the late Edward F. and Maggie Sue (Daniels) Kiereck. He was raised in the Rochester area, where he graduated from Penfield High School.
His passion for bowling started in 1980 in Rochester and he continued on to pursue his career in the bowling industry in Studio City, California at Sports Center Bowl (now Pinz). While in California he enjoyed cycling and completed 13 marathons.
His avid love for the Adirondacks, where he proudly summitted all 46 high peaks, and a desire to be closer to his family, led him to settle in the North Country where he purchased Market Lanes Bowling Alley in 2005. There he fell in love with his companion, Georgia, and the two very much adored one another. They happily lived together raising their 3 year old daughter, JoJo. Tom was also a great enthusiast of fire trucks, as he owned two of them, participating in local community events and parades. He is best known for his compassion and generosity always emphasizing how important faith and fellowship are.
Tom will be sadly missed by his companion and love, Georgia Schiavone; his daughters Jacklyn Kiereck (26) of Virginia and Jordan (JoJo) Faith Kiereck (3) at home; his step children, William, Ashley, and Emma Schiavone; his grandchildren, Damon and Paisley; his sisters, Mary Rita (Bob) Kurycki, Deborah Sunbeck Ph.D., and Veronica Kiereck; his brother, Joseph (Marcy) Kiereck; brother-in-law Jim Kurycki, and many nieces, nephews and friends he met along his journey.
In addition to his parents, Tom was predeceased by his sister, Maria Kurycki, and nephew, Michael Kurycki.
Due to the current restrictions on gatherings, a celebration of his life will be held at a later date at Market Lanes.
Memorial contributions may be made in his memory to House of Mercy, 285 Ormond Street, Rochester, NY, 14605.
Arrangements are with the Donaldson-Seymour Funeral Home, Potsdam, where friends and family are encouraged to share memories and offer condolences online at www.donaldsonseymour.com.
