Obituary

Raymond Thomas Cummiskey (Tom), the Patriarch of our family passed away suddenly on September 28, 2022 in a tragic car accident the day that hurricane Ian arrived at Fort Myers Florida, he was 87. 

 

 

Tom is survived by three sons Tom Cummiskey, Jerry Cummiskey (Teri) and Jack Cummiskey (Tina), his first wife Darlene Ray, two stepsons Scott Jones and John Jones III, his sister Dolli Camara and his three brothers Jim, Bill and Jerry Cummiskey. Tom is also survived by four grandchildren Amy Cummiskey, Caitlin Cummiskey, Diana Cummiskey and Shane Cummiskey with one step granddaughter Ula Jones.

 

Tom was born on July 20, 1935 in Towanda Pennsylvania to his father Raymond Anthony Cummiskey and his mother Margaret Gertrude Cummiskey who are no longer with us. 

 

Tom served our country in the US Air Force during the Korean War.

 

Tom married his first wife Darlene Ray in 1955 in Pennsylvania and after having their first son they moved to California for Tom to attended college where the second and third son were born. They returned to Hatboro, PA in 1960 to raise their three children.

 

Tom and Darlene stayed in each other’s lives long after their divorce in 1971 where they were able to continue attending family functions and dinners together as well as celebrating her birthday with their family every year. 

 

Tom married his second wife Dorothy (Dottie) on July 7, 1977, Dottie passed away in Fort Myers, FL July 17, 2006. 

 

Tom and Dottie had a passion for life in Florida, especially Islamorada but eventually settled into the Whiskey Creek section of Fort Myers.

 

Tom lived most of his life in Doylestown, Pennsylvania area then headed south in the winter season to the Fort Myers area after his retirement in 2005.

 

This year was the first summer season for Tom to stay in Florida.

 

Tom was a sales engineer and a successful business owner that worked very hard most of his life selling water and wastewater pumps for his business Bucks Environmental Systems in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

He was a very intelligent and strong-willed man that worked with engineers and contractors to build pumping systems and complicated control systems for many years.

 

Tom retired at the age of 70. 

 

Tom had a passion for flying planes for many years. He loved boating and fishing at the Jersey Shore and especially in Islamorada Florida. He was a dog lover with many poodles at his side when he was together with Dottie. 

 

Tom enjoyed watching game shows, fishing shows and cooking shows on TV so you could count on him to talk to you about how to cook the catch of the day when he discovered you had gone fishing. 

 

Tom enjoyed socializing with many of his grade school friends, business associates as well as many new friends that he met at his favorite restaurants in Florida and Pennsylvania.  

 

Tom spent many recent years with his friend Maryanne Reynolds by his side and he would call her daily to remind her to watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune at 6:55 PM since they were far away from each other.

 

Tom was extremely proud of all of his sons and grandchildren. He was a great story teller that loved to see his family whenever possible. He would drive up from Florida for any family gathering. He loved his family.

 

We will deeply miss his sense of humor and vast knowledge that he shared with so many people along his journey.

 

The family will be scheduling a celebration of life service for friends and family at a later date.

 

In lieu of flowers the family asks to please send donations in memory of Raymond Thomas Cummiskey and all of the other victims of Hurricane Ian to the American Red Cross.
