RAYMOND, N.H. — Thomas "Tom" Mark Ahearn, 51, died Friday, May 27, 2011 at his home after a period of failing health.
He was born Aug. 6, 1959, in Wayne, Mich., son of George M. Ahearn and the late Eleanor (Nota) Ahearn. Tom grew up traveling around various parts of the country due to his father's work responsibilities. Tom fondly spent many summers back in Michigan on the farm. In 1976, the family settled in Raymond, N.H., where he lived for the last 35 years. He married Carla Aasen in 1980 and together they raised four children. Tom worked for over 30 years in the plumbing and heating industry, getting his initial experience working with his brother-in-law, Reg Richard. His last employment was with Denron Plumbing and Heating as a project manager until he became too ill to work.
Tom was a longtime member of the Raymond Youth Athletic Association from 1977-1996 and also served as President for several years. He was also actively involved with Lamprey River Little League throughout this time. For Tom, he valued his family and friends, and the time he devoted to them above all else. He also greatly enjoyed the beach and taking long drives.
