Thomas “Tom” Joseph Soforic, 53, of Pittsburgh, originally from Scottdale, passed away Saturday afternoon, February 26, 2022, in UPMC Passavant Hospital, McCandless Twp., surrounded by his loved ones after losing his battle with Covid- Pneumonia.

He was born in Mt. Pleasant, May 1, 1968, a son of the late Thomas and Emily Lesniowski Soforic.

 Tom was a graduate of Geibel Catholic High School, Connellsville, Class of 1986, and a University of Pittsburgh alumnus. After finishing school, he worked in the IT industry for many years which he enjoyed. He then pursued his lifelong passion for building and creating by establishing his own remodeling business. Tom had a fascination with planes and flying and had his pilot’s license in his younger years. He also enjoyed traveling, sailing, gatherings with family and friends, and was a proud “Parrothead.” Tom will be treasured forever for his heart of gold, quick wit, wealth of knowledge, and big personality. He was someone who always put others’ needs before his own. His smile and laughter, which made the world a better place, will truly be missed.
