Terry Nicholas Tomko

November 28, 1962 — October 28, 2023

Boardman

Boardman - Terry Nicholas Tomko, 60, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, on October 28, 2023 at St. Elizabeth Boardman Health Center.

Terry was born November 28, 1962 in Youngstown, a son of the late John and Geraldine "Geri" (Matasic) Tomko. He graduated from Canfield High School where he raised the bar for student athletes and went on to become a machinist at his family's shop. Never one to sit still, he then opened his very own nitrite business and even started his own landscaping company which he ran with his son. He loved listening to his talk radio while beautifying his clients' yards. He was very passionate about his memorabilia, being an avid collector of all things sports and he was always ready to bargain you down as much as he could.

Terry was all about family. He lived for and his life revolved around, his two children. By no surprise, once his granddaughter Mila was born, the best father became the all-star Papa. He loved coaching his son during his school years in baseball and soccer. Terry was never one to be too serious and he loved making everyone around him laugh. He was quite the jokester. His greatest joy was just sitting around chopping it up with his family.
He leaves behind to carry his legacy, his children, Brittney (Michael) Martinko and Ryan (Alyssa) Tomko, both of Boardman; grandchildren, Jack and Mila Martinko; his siblings, Debbie (Paul Weber) Brooks of Columbus, Gary (Carolyn) Tomko of Canfield, Jay (Susan Shook) Tomko of Canfield, and Shari (Bobby) Tomko-Palmer of FL; he also leaves many nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and great-nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
