Thomas Propst Obituary

 Thomas Propst "Tommy Tutone", 61, of Northumberland, left us early Thursday, October 19, 2023, at the Geisinger Medical Center, Danville. He was born August 5, 1962, a son to Thomas I. and Patricia Propst. 

    He was a loving, nurturing father to Thomas (Tommy) Propst, Elizabeth Gonsar, Mariah Mckinney, and Hannah Propst. He was the best grandpa, to 7 granddaughters and 1 grandson, with a granddaughter on the way. He also took in Amanda Cole (sister to Elizabeth) as his own. He is survived by three siblings, Cheryl Reitz, Wendy Graham, and Lynn Smith. 

   Tom was never found leaving the house without being prepared for anything and everything! He always had a pocket full of hard candy and peanuts ready for the squirrels. 

    In his earlier years he was known for being a hypnotherapist, and the greatest pizza delivery driver ever! Again, he was always prepared, whether it was paper plates and napkins, or dog treats in his car, he was certainly the delivery driver you would want to deliver your pizza! 

   Later in life he did more hunting, taking his kids out and teaching them all he knew, which was mostly how to be quiet and fall asleep! He loved the outdoors and was rarely found sitting around inside, didn't matter the year, or the weather. In that, he loved scouts and loved it when any of us kids showed interest in it. 

   You never found his home empty, there was always room for more kids to him. No child ever left without having eaten dinner, no matter what, if you showed up and food was being served, you sat down and ate! He loved everyone as his own, and took care of those around him. 

     Halloween was his favorite holiday to deck out his house. Every year he would try to outdo himself and make his porch even scarier than the last! He was the best house on the block, not just for the scares, but for the treats as well! He gave out handfuls and handfuls of candy to each child. He paid more out the kids that had smaller hands! You never had to go in to get the candy, if any child was too afraid to enter, he simply told them to walk to the other side and gave them handfuls of candy anyways.

   We are asking anyone who had photos of Tom to please provide them to his daughter Elizabeth.
