Loving Husband and Father




Thomas David Coan, age 61, of Glen Mills, formerly of Drexel Hill, PA passed away at home on Saturday, September 14, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.

Tom was born on September 8, 1958, in Darby, PA. He was the son of late Charles and Winnie (nee Thrash) Coan. He graduated with his associate's degree in carpentry from Williamson Trade School and his bachelor's degree in organizational management from Eastern University along with continuing education from Villanova University. Tom married the love of his life, Maria on May 31, 1986, in Havertown, PA and share three beautiful children together, Thomas Charles, Dr. Nicholas John, and Leah Marie. Tom was recently promoted to G-Pop as he was anxiously awaiting the arrival of his first grandchild who is due to arrive in December.

Over the years, Tom always kept himself quite busy. Whether he was working on a project around the house or trying to find the time to work on his 1968 Ford Mustang, Tom always had his hands in something. When it was time to relax, you could find Tom floating in his pool, watching his car shows on the couch with his dogs, or sitting on the beach in Wildwood Crest, NJ.

Tom is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Maria (nee Novelli); his loving children, Thomas (Holly), Nicholas and Leah (Matthew); his dogs Cody and Ralphie, and his many nieces, nephews, and in-laws.
