Thomas C. B. Quinn

Thomas C.B. Quinn, 73, recently of Wyndmoor, PA, succumbed to lung cancer on Monday, June 19, 2023 at the Caring Heart Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.  Born May 24, 1950, Tom was raised Roman Catholic in St. Joan of Arc parish in the Harrowgate section of Philadelphia, serving as an altar boy. He later went on to graduate from Northeast Catholic High School For Boys.

In his youth, Thomas was a Bulletin newspaper boy, then became branch manager, responsible for collecting and remitting branch funds. When he was 18, he became employed by Hood Tool Company of Frankford, overseeing office operations. By the time he was 21, he was the sales manager for Hood Tools.

In the early 1980s, looking for new scenery, Thomas traveled west, eventually landing in St. Paul, Minnesota. Tom settled in Coon Rapids, Minnesota where he lived for more than 30 years. Initially holding successive jobs, Thomas was employed at Novartis at its Ovaltine facility in Saint Louis Park, Minnesota for over 20 years until the facility was moved to Mexico during the second Bush administration. At that time, Thomas took retirement, but continued to work at several part time jobs.

Thomas was hospitalized on September 7, 2022 at Allina Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids where it was discovered that he had lung cancer which had metastasized to his brain. In December, his sister and nephew returned Tom home to Pennsylvania to be amongst family.

Predeceased by his parents, Bernard E and Margaret J. (O’Neill) Quinn and his sister, Peggy, her husband, Charles O’Connor, brother-in-law, James Sterling and sister-in-law Angelina.

Thomas is loved, survived, and sorely missed by his brother, Anthony, sister, Bernadette, 12 nieces and nephews and their spouses and numerous great nieces and nephews.

If desired, donations may be made to the Marlyn Fein Chapter Fox Chase Cancer Society.
