It breaks our hearts to announce that on December 5, 2022 Thomas E. Mawn, Jr., 83, of Levittown, NY passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family and friends after a month long illness. Tom was born on January 14, 1939 in Woodlawn, NY to Thomas & Dorothy Mawn where his family resided until they moved to Bellrose, NY where he grew up and spent his life as an active member of the community, met Mary and they married on September 28, 1963. They lived for a short time in New Hyde Park NY and then moved to Levittown, NY in 1965. Both in Bellrose and in Levittown, Dad was very faithful and very active in the community. He attended St Mary’s High School in Manhasset and loved his time there - he spoke so often about it. He and Mom met when they were part of the Gregorian Society at a dance at St. Gregory’s Roman Catholic Church in Bellrose. Together they volunteered often in Bellrose. They both worked for banks. Dad worked for Citibank and Mom for Chemical Bank in New York City across the street from one another, so they found out after they started to date. Dad worked for Citibank and retired as Assistant Vice President after working there for 42 years. He then worked for 12 years at St. Bernard’s Church as Business Manager.

He was his son Tommy’s Baseball Coach along with his good friend Jimmy Fox.
