In Memory of Thomas Anthony Cierzo

March 7, 2023


Thomas Anthony Cierzo, age 83, of Webster, New York passed away peacefully at home with family on Tuesday, March 7, 2023. Tom was born to the late Angelo and Anna (Coviello) Cierzo in Jersey City and lived in Secaucus for over 50 years before moving to New York.

He was a musician, a drafting engineer, and an Army Reservist before serving for 20 years in the Port Authority Police, retiring as a Sergeant in 1988. However, Tom felt his real job was dedicating himself to helping friends and family. He worked often and selflessly to ensure others could overcome difficulties or position themselves to better their lives. Tom is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Joyce (Butch) Cierzo; his Son, Thomas A. Cierzo II; Daughter in law, Holly Cierzo; Granddaughter, Sophia; and Nieces & nephews, MarryAnn, Carolyn, Patty, and Danny. He was predeceased by his brother, Art Cierzo and his wife Judy.

A visitation for Thomas will be held Sunday, March 12, 2023 from 3 to 7PM at Mack Memorial Home, 1245 Paterson Plank Road, Secaucus, NJ. A Mass of Christian Burial will occur Monday, March 13, at 9:30 AM at Immaculate Conception Church, Paterson Plank Rd, Secaucus, NJ followed by his committal service at Holy Cross Cemetery, Ridge Rd, North Arlington, NJ. In Lieu of Flowers the family asks for donations to be made in his honor to a Hospice of your choice.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Cierzo family.
