Thomas F. Ewing, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at Fox Chase Cancer Center surrounded by his loving family at the age of 57. 
 
Beloved husband of Clare M. (nee Ferry) Ewing. Devoted son of Joan M. (nee McGovern) Ewing and the late Vincent J. Ewing. Loving father of Amy, Christopher and the late Thomas. Dear Pop of Dominick. Brother of James Ewing (Pam), Peggy Monahan (Mark), Anita Riches (John) and Mary Wark (Jim); also survived by many nieces and nephews. 
 
His name is Thomas Francis Ewing, but you can call him Tom. He was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia with four of his younger siblings and two loving parents. His siblings all had nicknames for each other as kids and since he was blessed with large Irish ears, his nickname was “Ears”.   His childhood was filled with fun and laughter.  Tom was a real ladies man in his teen years.  He also became responsible for taking care of his family, at the young age of 21, when his dad passed away. 

 
Later on in life, he luckily found the love of his life, Clare.  She and her daughter Amy stole his heart.  Then he was even more blessed to bring two handsome boys into this world.  Thomas and Christopher were the light of his life as they brought so much happiness and joy to his family.  His family went on a lot of fun-filled vacations and had tons of great times together.  While they didn’t always agree, they stuck together like family should always do. The special moments they shared will forever be a part of Toms legacy.
