Thomas Edward Zinck 67, Holliston, MA passed peacefully in the arms of loved ones to our Heavenly Father at the Rose Monahan Hospice Center in Worcester, MA on Tuesday, April 6th, 2021 from a short-term diagnosis of peritoneal cancer.

Tom was the adored son of the late Arthur and Mary Zinck of Wellesley, MA, son in law of Sandra and the late Robert Arduino, Natick, MA and brother of Janis Worden and brother in law, Sharon Arduino.

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife Diane (Arduino), two beautiful daughters, Katherine (22) and Elizabeth (19), and his faithful four-legged friend, Chase.

In addition, his amazing siblings, Arthur (Margaret), Burlington, MA, Pamela Hebert, Natick, MA, Nancy Fogaren (Robert), Torrance, CA, Elaine King (Charlie), Saugus, CA, Celeste Nelson (Joseph), Westford, MA, Lorraine Denman (Craig), Holliston, MA. Brother & Sister in law Robert Arduino, Jr (Rosie) Dudley, MA, Carol (David) Stewart, Mendon, MA. The “fun uncle” to many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews.

A proud graduate of Wellesley High School, Class of 1972 and dedicated employee of the Town of Wellesley, Electric and Facilities and Maintenance Departments for over 32 years. He was the only building manager this iteration of the Wellesley High School has ever known. Not only is his position one that touches every corner of the building and every event that took place within it, but he was simply one of the kindest, most hard working, and most thoughtful members of our community. 

Tom was so deeply loved and cherished by his family and friends and he loved all of them just as much, he especially loved family gatherings at Christmas and on Cape Cod, MA.

The entire family wishes to extend special loving gratitude to Peter Hebert, his incredibly loyal and loving, nephew for the devoted care he gave to his uncle during this unimaginable time.
