Obituary of Thomas J. Fenaughty

Please share a memory of Thomas to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Fenaughty, Thomas J. died peacefully at his home in Manhattan on March 26. Born to Marian and Thomas Fenaughty September 28, 1930, in Brewster, NY, he was predeceased by his parents and two sisters, Marian “Tot”
Geesman and Joanna Larkin, and a niece Sharon Geesman.

After graduating from Ohio Wesleyan, and served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force, he attended Columbia University, eventually obtaining a Ph.D. after which he began a lifetime career as a professor, first at Columbia and subsequently at St John’s University in New York.

Thomas was very much involved in theatre and performance throughout his many years in New York. He was an active member of The Actors Studio and took part in many theatre and concert productions, both amateur and professional.

He is survived by two nephews and several grand nephews and a grand niece.  

He will be buried in the family plot at Assumption Cemetery in Cortlandt Manor, NY.

In accordance with his wishes, there will be no formal service at this time, but a drink-up in his memory somewhere in Manhattan could occur at some later post-pandemic date.
