Thomas “Tom” F. McAllister, Jr.
Thomas Francis McAllister Jr., 83, died peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
Tom grew up in Somerville Massachusetts and helped in the family trucking business. After serving honorably in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, he turned his love of building and fixing things into a career as an electrician, property manager and real estate business owner. Tom moved his family and his business to Fort Myers in 1978. He enjoyed spending time with friends and family, boating and fishing, model building and getting his hands dirty in his workshop. For Tom, no renovation was too big or daunting and there are a number of beautiful properties in Fort Myers and Cape Coral that stand as tributes to his passion.
Tom is survived by his wife of 27 years, Lois; children, Lisa, Mike (Brigitte), Melissa (Nick), Laura (Derrill), Tara (Dale), and Ryan; grandchildren, David, Kyle, Alex, Kevin, Raquel, Dale, Daniel and Taylor and great grandchildren, Harrison and Aria.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents Thomas Francis and Mary Agnes McAllister of Somerville, his brothers, Jim and Francis, as well as his grandson, Blaine.
