New Fairfield Resident Thomas S. Scebelo, 77, has Died

Thomas S. Scebelo, 77, died July 6, 2020, peacefully at his home in New Fairfield, CT.

Tom was born July 10, 1942, in New York, NY to Anthony and Margaret Scebelo. He grew up in Manhattan before his family moved to Hackensack, NJ, where he graduated from Hackensack High School.

He spent his entire 40 plus year career at Citibank before retiring as a Vice President.

Tom met his future wife Mary Lou at a church dance in Elmwood Park, New Jersey. They were married at St. Leo’s Roman Catholic Church in Elmwood Park, NJ in 1962. The long-time residents of New Fairfield moved to their “forever home” in 1982. They traveled together to Switzerland, Hawaii, Australia, London, Italy and Quebec. One of their favorite places to visit was Washington, D.C.

Tom never lost his love for watching western movies, reading spy thrillers and collecting toy soldiers.

Mr. Scebelo is survived by his wife of 57 years, Mary Lou; his 3 sons Thomas, Robert and Steven and his spouse Laura; his granddaughter Samantha; his sisters Ann Marie and Jane; and his numerous nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his sister, Mary and his niece, Melissa.
