Date of Notice: Monday, August 1, 2011; Courier Post Thomas Paul Polidori, age 64, of Medford NJ, passed away Saturday, July 30, 2011, at home surrounded by his family. He is finally at peace after battling cancer for over two years. Born in Camden, NJ, Thomas grew up in Pennsauken, where he graduated from high school in 1965. After graduating from Wyndham College in Vermont with a Bachelors Degree, he returned to Marlton NJ, where he started his family and began his career with Bell and Howell. While rising through the corporate ranks, Tom was proud to join the company's President's Club and to accept a national position in Chicago, where he resided for two years before moving back to Medford NJ. In 1986, he officially left the company to join his father in business at Connector Products Inc. After becoming company president in 1988, he was fortunate to spend 25 years working alongside his father, Mario, and eight years working with his son, Nicholas, as the three generations of Polidori men built the family business together. Throughout both careers, Tom made countless friends as he traveled around the country. He loved sailing his boat in the ocean near Longport, NJ, telling stories to everyone around him, and being a grandfather to his two grandchildren, Kai and Cole Polidori. He was a member of the Ocean City Yacht Club. Standing at 6 feet, eight inches tall, he will always be remembered as a big man who had a heart as big as the sky. He is survived by his parents, Mario and Jessica Polidori, of Medford Lakes NJ; his son and daughter-in-law, Nicholas Boyd and Courtney Polidori of Medford; and two grandchildren, Kailan (age 6) and Cole (age 2). Although he was an only child, Tom's close friends consider him "The big brother they never had" and spent time with him until the very end. Relatives and friends may call on Wednesday, August 3, 2011, from 6-8PM, and again on Thursday, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Mathis Funeral Home, 58 N. Main St., Medford, (609) 654-2439. Funeral services will follow at 12 noon at the funeral home. Internment will be held privately at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Thomas' memory to the American Cancer Society, 1851 Old Cuthbert Road, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034; or to S. Jude's Children's Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
