Thomas Wasilewski, 70, of Grey Birch Lane, Johnston, peacefully passed away surrounded by his family Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at the HopeHealth Hulitar Inpatient Center in Providence. He was the Partner in Life of Rhonda (Edwards) Francis.
Born in Providence, he was a son of the late Aleck and Frances (Murphy) Wasilewski. He had lived in Johnston for the past 15 years.
Tom retired from the Woonsocket Fire Department as a Lieutenant in 2005 after serving for 23 years.
Tom was an avid fisherman, lover of all things nature, sports, helping others, God-fearing, with the most loving and giving heart; he somehow made us laugh until his very last day.
Besides his wife, Rhonda, he is survived by his children: Sam Wasilewski and his wife, Leslie of Johnston and Kate Wasilewski of Burrillville, his stepdaughter: Jamie Francis of Woonsocket, his three grandchildren: Charlie Francis, Bella Macedo, Zachary Wasilewski and a brother, Richard Wasilewski of Chepachet.
