Thomas S. Geslak was born on April 5, 1967, or as he liked to say 4-5-6-7. He passed unexpectedly on December 24, 2020 at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. Tom was a loving, hardworking, generous, and caring man.
Born in Irvington, NJ to Walter (predeceased 2017) and Wanda Geslak, Tom resided in Holmdel for the past 19 years. Tom was the owner of Evan’s Machine and Tool Co., which his father established in 1967. He was a husband for 22 years to his beloved wife Donna, and a father to his four daughters Stefanie, Katherine, Valerie, and Karoline. Tom was a brother to Mike and his wife Tina, and an uncle to Monika, Mathew, and Gabriella. (An honorable mention goes to his faithful canine companion Louie Boy).
Tom was known to help others before himself, whether that be regularly stopping by his mother’s house, snow plowing his neighbors’ driveways, offering his cabin in the woods to vacation with his friends, or making time to take his daughters to Home Depot for home projects or Shop Rite for cooking. He did so much for others and never asked for anything in return. Tom was a dedicated parishioner to St. Catharine’s Church in Holmdel, a member of Polish Falcons of America Nest 17, and a board member of the Z.P.A.. Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
