Obituary of Thomas A. Meconi

Thomas A. Meconi, Tomac, passed away peacefully on January 27th, 2022. Tom lived his life with passion and unwavering direction. From protest marching, resisting IRA recruitment, excelling in the honors writing program at the University of Michigan, advocating for disadvantaged youth at the Wayne County Juvenile Defender’s Office to practicing law for his clients, not for his pockets, Tom lived by his principles. Tom was an avid water skier, pool player, photographer, music theorist, musician, Italian wine connoisseur, Italian cook, scuba diver, progressive advocate, fly fisherman and vessel of arcane information. He is preceded by his father, mother and brother in death. He leaves a vacuum for his wife, Jean, daughter, Amy, and son, Mike, which cannot be filled. His family was beside him throughout life and asks you to embrace your better self.


by Tom Meconi

In the greater scheme of things

we are inconsequential;

our impact brief,

our time briefer.

When the wind scatters

the clouds across the sky

and they reflect at your knees

in the pool where

you are standing, remember

the trout are too.

Build the rods,

Tie the flies and

cast the thousand casts

but at the strike and fight

you are only important

to each other.
