Thomas M. Lovato, Sr., born April 8, 1964, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, passed away in his native city on Wednesday, November 15, 2023.
Loved by many, Thomas carried a reputation as a handyman, always ready with a quick fix or a joke.
Thomas was preceded in death by his mother Feliz (Phyllis) Lovato, brother Anthony Lovato, niece Evangeline (Vange) Lovato and other family members.
He is survived by his father Benajamin Lovato, sisters: Cindy and husband Louie, Carrie and husband Rick, Marie and husband Blas, brothers: Ben and wife Louann, Richard and wife Liz, son TJ and wife Mona and their two sons: Thomas III and Emilio, and many loving family and friends.
Passionate about building models and inking tattoos, Thomas transformed the mundane into masterpieces. Yet, his greatest joy was his family, particularly his son and grandsons who meant the entire world to him. His love for them was pure, unfiltered, and endless, embodying the loving individual he truly was.
A connoisseur of culinary arts, Thomas wore his hat as a great cook with pride, especially his chili and meatloaf. His dishes were a testament to his skill and love for food. A remarkable man adorned with a sense of humor, his vibrant spirit would fill any room with laughter and joy.
Thomas Lovato, Sr. will always be remembered as a handy, funny, and loving individual.
