Thomas William Mozzone, 78, Cape Canaveral, FL, passed away in Cape Canaveral Hospital on November 15, 2022 after a battle with a brief illness.
Born on May 10, 1944 to Anthony Laurence Mozzone and Agnes Theresa Mozzone (Anderson) in Flushing, New York, Thomas was raised in the community of Indian Lake, Denville, New Jersey; he later resided in Rockaway, New Jersey for most of his adult life before moving to Florida in the late 1990’s.
Thomas attended Morris Hills High School and later served in United States Air Force as an aircraft Supply Specialist. Following his military service, he earned several insurance licenses as well as his Real Estate license and followed his parents’ footsteps in the real estate business.
Naturally outgoing since childhood, Tom grew into a charismatic individual with a sense of humor that, though uniquely dry, was certain to make everyone around him cry with laughter. Recognizing his own extroverted nature, Tom briefly went into sales, but his dream job was to become a builder of homes – and so that he did, where he built a variety of homes throughout the New Jersey area until his retirement to Florida.
Mr. Mozzone is predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his loving daughter, Laura Simon and her spouse Britt Simon along with two grandchildren whom he was immensely proud of, Christopher Tappan and Paige Simon, as well as his brother Ron Mozzone and nieces and nephews.
Tom enjoyed cruising to the islands, cooking, raising German Shepherds, socializing with close friends at the bar, and perhaps his favorite -- football. Whether it was a college team or pro team, it didn’t matter, he would always choose a team for the win, and during the off-season, Tom’s excitement for the start of the new season could be felt by everyone around him.
He was surrounded by friends and family amidst his final days and will be tremendously missed.
Arrangements are private and are being handled by Beckman Williamson Funeral Home in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
