Thomas Edward McAnn

Thomas Edward McAnn passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 with his family by his side. He was born in Macon, Georgia on July 13, 1948, but lived the majority of his life in Tacoma, Washington.


Tom was a big-hearted man who enjoyed seeing others smile. He proudly served his country in the Marine Corps and was a Vietnam veteran. He retired from Boeing after many, many years. Tom loved cuckoo clocks, his Corvette, fishing, hunting, and camping.


He deeply cherished his three daughters and their families. He is survived by his daughters, Shauna (Jeremy) Waters of Wenatchee, WA, Michele (Daniel) Tucker of Pasco, WA, and Christina (Anthony) Garner of Orting, WA. 


Tom is survived also by his grandchildren, Emma and Abbey Waters, Katelyn and Emilee Waters, and Austyn Woods; Luke, Ethan and Wesley Tucker; and Hayden and Leah Garner; his former spouse, Suzanne Bracher (Micheal) of Milton, WA; and sister, brothers, nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless close friends.


In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that a random act of kindness be done in Tom's memory or that a gift be presented this holiday season to "Toys for Tots", which is supported by The Marine Corps.


Services to be held in January 2018.
