Obituary

Our beloved father, Thomas Marion Gromacki, age 85, passed on to his eternal reward, September 17, 2020 with Cardiovascular Dementia.  From age 60, dad fought for his life and taught everyone the value and dignity of the human person along the way.  He was an athlete, a grade school and high school teacher, as well as an entrepreneur founding Fiesta Pools and Patios, Inc. in 1960, where our whole family was employed growing up. He enjoyed 15 years of coaching football and wrestling.
Dad was the second generation from Polish and German immigrants. He attended St. John’s Elementary School, Cathedral Prep, and Gannon College.
We will never forget his corny jokes, singing in the shower, and his love for old movies, especially those with John Wayne.  He enjoyed dancing and we polka danced even in the wheelchair.
Mom and Dad were married for 62 years-marrying at 20 and 23 years old respectively, which is an accomplishment in this current culture!  He will be missed by Gerrie, his high school sweetheart and his 4 children: Tom and Kelly Gromacki, Mary Sue and Doug Sanderson, John and Stacy Gromacki, and Matthew and Toni Gromacki; 9 grandchildren: Nicole and Pat Henry, Kellie Gromacki and Lexie Gromacki, Megan and Justin Van Roie,  Adam Sanderson, Phoebe and Paige Gromack,  Jacob Gromacki, and Jason Keopka; 5 great grandchildren: Jackson Kovar, Peyton Henry, and William, Augustine, and Charles Van Roie.

Friends are invited to the Funeral Mass on Saturday at St. Peter’s Cathedral at 10 am. Send condolences to www.kloeckerfuneralhome.com

Entombment will be in Mary Queen of Peace Cemetery

Dear Tom,
I extend to you and your mother and all your family my prayerful condolences on the death of your father. His patron (and yours), "Doubting Thomas", reaffirmed our faith in Christ's resurrection and ours. "Groma" in Polish mean "a lot, a collection", and your father has left behind a lot of family members, a "crowd" that was certainly a "pride and joy" for him (and your mother). He guided so many along the right path in life as a teacher and coach. He (and all the family) brought delight and refreshment to so many through Fiesta Pools. John Wayne's first film was "The Big Trail"; may your father now walk another "Big Trail", accompanied by the angels and saints. He and your mother were blessed by God to be married 62 years. May he meet the Lord, and say with St. Thomas, "My Lord and My God!"
Fr. Dan Kresinski
PS: Tom, you may remember me as your freshman religion teacher at Prep.

To the whole family: My deepest condolences on the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. My memories of Mr. Gromacki are filled with smiles and laughter. We spent many an hour at your pool swimming, barbecuing, and relaxing, along with picnics on our patio. May your memories of time spent together bring you comfort during this difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely, Amy (Marasco) House
