Thomas F. Might

Thomas F. Might, 70, of Charleroi, passed away peacefully on May 12th, at home surrounded by his loving family. Born in New York City Sept 5, 1951, Tom is the son of the late George S. Might and Margaret (Hopkins) “Peg” Might who survives.

Tom lived in San Francisco for over 40 years before returning to Charleroi.  He worked in IT for the USPS and the Coast Guard. He was an avid lover of music and Native American art. 

Surviving to cherish his memory are his siblings Elynn, Adele (David), George (Diane), Joyce (Harold), Joan, Paul (Jean), Carol (Ben); and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by the loves of his life Indra Allen, Claudia Cramer and Patti Sawka.

The family would like to thank Vitas Hospice for their amazing support. We would also like to thank the many friends and extended family members for all the prayer, meals and love to help us help Tom make his peaceful transition.  Per Tom’s request, there will be no public viewing or services.


I am so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing! I knew Tom when he was married to my mother, Indy, and then years later when he renewed his deep friendship with her. What a blessing he was to her in her last years, and an absolute angel to her in her last months in particular, a role he played once before, and would play once again with his other beloved partners, with such grace, tenderness and faithfulness.
He loved his big family so much, and they loved him. There were always photos of them all around his place, stories about them, and cards and letters from them posted on the fridge. I am so glad he was with them in the end.
What a loving and gentle spirit he had! He was so full of good-will, kindness and generosity for everyone he met. He kept a child-like wonder about the world, regardless of the hard times and heartache he went through. Suffering never seemed to sour Tom, it just seemed to deepen his compassion and joy in nature, music, and love. I was inspired by him, and I will miss him. My sincere sympathy to his other friends and his family.

Tom was fun loving and funny classmate in the 9th grade at Mon Valley Catholic High before moving onto Charleroi High School where his antics weren’t under the tough scrutiny of nuns. He was a larger than life personality and well-liked by all. I lost touch with Tom but was not surprised that he moved to the San Francisco area for 40 years. It was a good match. We reconnected on Facebook and very quickly bonded over music, guitar and similar worldviews. I loved his sensitive and caring personality and the way he loved people and nature. He told me recently that he bought a red stratocaster and amp and was looking forward to playing. Losing him was such a shock as he never let on about his illness. We will miss him and the world is diminished by his passing but cherish the joyful expanse of his personality and his gentle loving nature.
