Thomas L. Schlesinger

Thomas L. Schlesinger, October 8, 1951 – August 27, 2020. Beloved husband of Judy Schlesinger and father of Elizabeth and William Schlesinger; dear brother and brother-in-law of Merry Lou (John) Taylor, Karen (Jeff) Wagner, and Dr. Robert (Judy) Kramer, and son of Henrietta and the late Robert Schlesinger.

Tom was a devoted father and husband whose greatest joy was his family.  His work ethic, moral compass, wit, and gentleness were the hallmarks of his character.  He loved music and spent every summer at the MUNY with his family.  While he had a discerning taste for scotch and cigars, his true favorite was an O’Connell’s burger and a Ted Drewe’s sundae.  The grace, patience, and sense of humor he maintained through his illness are a lesson to us all.  

Services: A zoom funeral will be held on August 30.  Memorial contributions preferred to Moog Center for Deaf Education,, the Human Rights Campaign,, or Unique Women’s Coalition, Visit for more information. BERGER MEMORIAL SERVICE
