Thomas Joseph Neapolitano, 81, passed away on Thursday June 30, 2022 at McClure Miller Respite House in Colchester. He was born and grew up in Schenectady, New York on January 3, 1941 son of the late Gaetano and Amy (Pirro) Neapolitano.

After graduating from UVM Tom settled in Fairfax, VT where he enjoyed his passion of raising animals and vegetable gardening. He also taught science classes at Milton High School for over 30 years and loved to educate young adults and help shape their lives. His talents and hard work at gardening were recognized every year with top placements in many different vegetable categories at the Champlain Valley Fair. Tom was driven by hard work and was constantly involved in an activity. He served on the Fairfax Zoning Board for many years, he catered bbq chicken dinners for large events, ran the concession at the quarter horse show at the Essex Fairground, owned the Cobweb hall in Georgia, and loved to gather and entertain people. His hobbies, in addition to animals and vegetables, included hunting and fishing, woodworking and making custom gun stocks, refurbishing various types of firearms, shooting and reloading, spending time with his friends in Vermont and North Carolina, playing the bass guitar and saxophone in several bands over the years, and enjoying cooking at home. Some of his favorite things to make included grilled steak, homemade pasta and sauce, Easter pies, homemade maple syrup, and apple pies. In his later years Tom and Becky enjoyed spending the winters in North Carolina where they would look for flea market treasures together. When Tom did relax, he enjoyed watching TV, especially his favorite show Jeopardy.

Tom and Becky Neapolitano spent 57 years together; he is also survived by 2 nephews Darryl Neapolitano of Wilton, NY and Matthew Neapolitano of Schenectady, NY; a grandnephew Hunter Neapolitano of Wilton, NY; many loving cousins and his feline companion Rusty and faithful companion Bella.

Visiting hours will be held on Thursday July 7, 2022 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at A W Rich Funeral Home – Fairfax Chapel. No other services will be held at this time. Memorial contributions in Tom’s memory may be made to the Fletcher Historical Society, 629 Fairfax Road, Fletcher, VT 05444. Please visit awrfh.com to share your memories and condolences.
