In Memory

Thomas Telesco

TELESCO, SR. THMOAS JOSEPH Friends and family, Friday, October 13 at approximately 8pm our beloved father, husband and grandfather, Thomas Joseph Telesco Sr, passed away peacefully at his home in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida. He was in the company of his wife, son and daughter when he passed. Thomas was 65 years old when he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer earlier this year. He fought bravely and with dignity for his life and for his family for 6 difficult months before surrendering to his rest. Thomas was the beautiful, talented and beloved son of Genevieve and Dominic Telesco, both Buffalo NY natives neither surviving their only son, and the beloved son-in-law of Mariano and Geraldine Saia, also from Buffalo NY. Thomas is survived by his beloved wife Lyn Marie Saia Telesco whom he loved for 43 Years, his two daughters Gia Telesco and Christina Gunther (Telesco), his son-in-law Nicolas Gunther, his son Thomas Joseph Telesco Jr (whom he objected to being named Eric Michael) and his grandchildren, Michael Thomas Telesco and Maximillian Dominic Telesco. Also surviving him are his loving brother-in-law's Fred Saia and Tom Saia of Buffalo NY. Thomas enjoyed a charmed life always surrounded by loving friends and family and good times, as well as a love and great talent for music, especially the electric guitar, many of which he owned and proudly displayed in his office. His artistic talent, intelligence and interest to help anyone he could drove his architectural design business and success in Miami's hospitality industry; he would enthusiastically give his time and talent to anyone who asked. He is terribly missed today and will be for every day of the rest of our lives. May God bless him and bring him tight into His arms now and until we can be together again. A Funeral Mass will be held at Saint Rose of Lima Church located at 415 NE 105TH ST, Miami Shores, Saturday, October 21ST at 1:30PM with a reception for the family and close friends immediately following. If Tom touched your life in a special or funny way, please reply with your stories as we may not know them all. Much love we and look forward to hearing from all who were touched by Tom and are willing to share their stories with us! In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to St Jude via Thank you very much! The Telesco's
