Obituary

Thomas E. Lindberg, aka T. Eddy, of New Smyrna Beach, Florida took his flight on Saturday, September 3, 2022. Tommy was 74 years old. He fought a very long & courageous battle over his lifetime with congestive heart issues. Along the way, he also beat prostate cancer even though many doctors said he would not survive the ordeal. Tommy was a survivor and always said: “I have 9 lives!”. And indeed, he did.

Tommy loved his wife deeply. Cindy was a rock and always supported Tommy through his medical procedures and trials. But there was also a deep passion and electricity in their relationship. Tommy used to love to pretend he was Ricky Ricardo and scream, “Lucy, I’m Home!” as he would come through the front door.

Tommy exhibited dignity and compassion for others throughout his struggles. Through him, many witnessed the power of humor, laughter and positive mental attitude over the disease that ravaged his body. Despite all the pain Tommy endured, he always had a smile on his lips and a joke at the ready. He was extremely fun to be with and as a result he has many, many enduring friendships.

Tom graduated from Northeastern University with a master’s in finance. He had a long career and achieved many difficult distinctions.

Tommy lived life to its fullest! He was born a leader and was always an energetic organizer. He assembled a diverse group of close friends that met for years every Friday. While many of the participants were initially Tommy’s friends, deep relationships formed with the other participants over time. He had a way of making everyone feel that they were a part of the gang. He would always take the newest member under his wing and make them pay for lunch.

We are grateful for the wonderful life that Tommy had and felt most privileged to be a part of it. We will miss his strong and confident voice, empathy, with, passion, intelligence, and incredible determination. And we will miss all of his silly and frequently off-color jokes.

Lindberg is survived by his wife of 34 years, Cindy, daughter Kristin, his granddaughter, Madeline, brother-in-law Steve Mudd and wife Pat, sister-in-law Nancy and Husband Phil, niece Nicole and Nephews Steve, David and Josh.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to St. Jude’s Hospital in his name.

    I always enjoyed our talks, Tommy input, wisdom when needed was always very helpful and useful. For all of us that were fortunate enough to get to know him, we all knew when talking with him, it could be about any topic... He would just smile and openly share that Tommy wit and input. At times it would be shared without us ever having to ask. He was the ultimate entertainer.... his Jokes and songs. And the times when he had a captive audience, we all got to witness his greatest feats of magic.
    I am so grateful to have known him .and very fortunate to have him as my friend.

    How will I miss Tommy da Swami? Let me count the ways.
    1. No more BoBo Mamaluke from Providence.
    2. Blue Larry will no longer play.
    3. Tommywalking bartender interviews have ceased.
    4. The Ministry of Silly Hats has one less creative artist.
    5. Surprise bull's eyes of a different caliber on your target will no longer occur.
    6. There will be a joke shortage.
    7. Someone else will have to call for a belting.
    8. We'll need a new negotiator for Friday's fixe prix luncheon, and an accountant.
    9. His tales of survival from the perils of life, both self inflicted, like motorcycle crashes, and acts of God.
    10. And last but not least I'll miss his charm and friendship.

    Tom was the bravest person I’ve ever known. As a result, he was also the friendliest guy you could ever meet. It was an absolute honor to have been his friend. Godspeed, Tom.

    He should have called Rob if he needed a new Jump N Go heart starter, Rob would have built a new and improved model! Tommy was a one of a kind guy that always put a smile on your face and a roll of your eyes. Fly high Tommy. ❤️❤️❤️
    Take care Cindy, we grieve with you.

    Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Tommy.  Every time I think of you a huge smile comes across my face.  You left a big hole in our universe as you were always bigger than life.
