ForeverMissed
Thomas J. Sabin was born in Newark, New Jersey, on July 1, 1938, and departed this earthly life on Friday, December 23, 2022.

He is survived by his two children, Craig Sabin (wife Linda and children Brett and Lauren) of Allen, Texas; and Keith Sabin (wife Tina and children Kaylie and Ryan) of Montville, New Jersey; as well as his sister, Betty Roskowski (children Patrice Grivner, Steven Roskowski, Tina Crerand) and many extended family members. 

After graduating high school, Tom joined the military branch of the U.S. Navy, where he proudly served and received an honorable discharge. Tom was a salesperson for Sears Roebuck for many years before starting his own business as a massage therapist in Kearny, NJ, and surrounding areas prior to his retirement in 2004. He inspired his sons to become entrepreneurs and was able to see this become a reality.

A well-read, self-educated man, Tom had a strong presence and was passionate about art, history, science, and travel. He was always quick with a joke and an amazing memory to remember them all. A great teacher and advisor to all who would listen.

Later in life, his quiet demeanor took over, and he enjoyed listening to others, helping them to work through any issues they might be having. He had a unique ability to care and love unconditionally.

Tom’s life is best represented by a poem from Robert Frost, “Two roads converge in the woods, and I took the one least traveled by, and that has made all the difference in my life.”

Tom will be missed and loved always. His time with us ended on a good note. 333/711

Tom was one of a small number of adults that I can truly say was a positive role model in my life. I felt very special sitting around his kitchen table listening to stories about history, travel and art mostly. I forgot we shared a birthday I'm a better man for knowing him. Rest in peace Uncle Tom...
