Thomas "Tom" Victor Stanovich.  Family man lost his battle with cancer at age 74 on March 9, 2018 surrounded by those he loved in his home in Palos Park, Illinois. 

Born on June 17, 1943 in Chicago, IL, he attended St. Rita High School.  Tom proudly served in the Air National Guard for 6 years.  He was an accomplished salesman for 40 years after a 12 year career with Illinois Bell. 
Tom had a passion for cars and boats and could fix absolutely anything.  He loved nothing more than spending time with his family, particularly his grandson Griffin. 
Tom was known for always taking care of those around him.

Tom was the loving husband of Dawn (nee Engel).  He is preceded in death by his parents, Victor and Pauline (nee Nakvosas) Stanovich; brother, George Stanovich; and brother Richard Stanovich.

Tom is survived by his daughters, Lori (Jeff) Tucker, Karen Stanovich;  grandchildren, Griffin Tucker, Lauren Tucker; brother, John (Barbara) Stanovich; brother-in-law, Bob (Mariann) Engel; nephews, John (Alison) Stanovich, Dan (Tina) Stanovich, Richard Stanovich; nieces Paula (Elias) Contreras, Mary Stanovich; and other relatives and friends too numerous to name.  Tom always had a kind word to say or something to make you smile.  Our memories of him will forever live in our hearts.
