Obituary of Thomas A. LaForge

Thomas Angelo (Bucky) LaForge Circleville, NY Heaven became a happier, more active place when God called Tom home on December 16, 2020. Tom was born to Edward LaForge and Teresa (Colantuono) LaForge in Middletown, NY on May 20, 1956. Tom graduated from Pine Bush High School, Class of 1974. From a very young age, Tom’s loves were his step-grandfather, his dogs and sports (Little League to High School basketball to Adult soft pitch ball). He was an avid Yankees and Green Bay Packers fan. His words were “are there any other teams?” He loved to watch his grandsons play any kind of ball-always with words of encouragement. Tom raised, bred and hunted Brittany Dogs for over 40 years, with puppies all over the country. Tom was a Corrections Officer for 31 years at Wallkill Prison in Wallkill, NY. He leaves behind his forever-loving wife Nancy; three step-sons who adored him, Kevin (Kelly) Weymer, Craig Weymer, and Steven (Toni) Weymer; and forever-in-his-heart Grandsons, Brayde (Little Man), Jacob (The Mayor), Austin (Goose), Brody and Logan. He also leaves behind his sister Lena (Martell) Bruce, nieces and nephews, and all of his friends. Anyone who knew him-LOVED him. He will be missed daily and NEVER forgotten.
