Obituary for Thomas A. Moro

Thomas A. Moro, 49, passed away suddenly on Nov. 30th. Tom will be forever remembered by his wife and best friend of 22 years, Lisa Patterson Moro. Tom was a devoted and loving father to his children; Ben, 16, and Kate, 13. Tom was preceded in death by his parents John P. Moro and Jeanne (DesForges) Moro.

He is survived by his siblings, Michael A. Moro, John A. Moro and Margie (Keith) Jostes; father-in-law J.R. (Sherry) Patterson, mother-in-law Janice (Dave) Housman and sister-in-law, Holli (Tim) Washburn. He adored each of his nieces and nephews: Jennifer, Michael, Steven, Rhiannon, Kevin, Logan, Danielle and William. He was honored to be the Godfather to Logan and Danielle. Additionally, he is survived by many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

Tom grew up in Homewood, IL. He attended Mankato State University where he played hockey before graduating from Eastern Illinois University with a Master’s of Economics.

After meeting in college, Tom and Lisa made their home in Chicago. Tom worked as a research analyst in investment banking. During that time, he played goaltender in a men’s hockey league at Johnny’s IceHouse in the West Loop.

Tom followed his lifelong passion for hockey 15 years ago when he purchased Johnny’s IceHouse. Tom became the heart and soul of Johnny’s. Using his keen business acumen, Tom significantly expanded the business. He built a second, larger facility just a few blocks west of the original rink, eventually tripling the number of men’s league teams and Jets players. Because of Tom, Johnny’s is more than just a place to skate in the city. It is a place where friendships are created and business deals are made. It is a place where people of all ages find their passion for the game. Tom loved bringing people together and connecting them over their shared love of hockey and gave selflessly to grow the sport in Chicago.

Tom enjoyed supporting his favorite Chicago sports teams, golfing with friends and traveling with his family. He was most happy watching Ben play hockey and watching Kate run cross country.
