November 8, 1941 – November 28, 2019
Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY

Thomas M. Greevy, Jr., of Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY entered into eternal rest on November 28, 2019 at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, Newburgh, NY. He was 78 years old.

The son of the late Thomas M. Greevy, Sr. and Katherine (Clarke) Greevy, Thomas was born on November 8, 1941 in Philadelphia, PA. He was a graduate of Roman Catholic High School.

Thomas was the head Racquet Sports Professional for The Tuxedo Club in Tuxedo Park, NY for over 40 years. He began his career as an apprentice at the Philadelphia Racquet Club in 1956 at the age of 15, eventually becoming an assistant pro there. In 1968 he became the head pro at Tuxedo, where he taught generations of players the finer points of tennis, squash, rackets, court tennis, and paddle tennis. Most importantly he was an ambassador for good sportsmanship and love of the games. In 1973 he won the United States Professional Court Tennis championship, and in 2000 was inducted into the International Court Tennis Hall of Fame. Before reluctantly retiring, Thomas made an incredible number of friends through racquet sports whom he still kept in touch with.

He was an active and devout member of the St. Joseph and St. Thomas of Canterbury parishes for many years.

A family statement reads: “Thomas loved his friends and family above all else. He was a loving father, grandfather, husband, brother, uncle and friend. He loved to tell stories, to make others laugh and to laugh himself, and was always there for someone in need. He thoroughly enjoyed all types of sports and especially rooting for his beloved Philadelphia teams. He was always our biggest fan, no matter what the endeavor. He will be missed greatly.”

Thomas was predeceased by his wife Marjorie Ruth (Stickles) Greevy, and his sister Margaret Hogentogler. He is survived by his children Matthew P. Greevy and his wife Ann, Kara Elizabeth Greevy and her significant other Paul Biagiotti, and Damien J. Greevy all of Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY; his adoring granddaughter Lucy; his brother Michael Greevy and his wife Maureen of Warrington PA, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, December 5th at Quigley-Sullivan Funeral Home, Inc., 337 Hudson St. Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, December 6th at St. Thomas of Canterbury Church, 340 Hudson Street, Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. Interment will follow the Mass at St. Thomas Cemetery, Cornwall, NY.

Tom was in our wedding 56 years ago. He was a very dear friend. I wish that we could've seen a lot more of each other
through the years. We came to visit him and Margie and they brought us out for a night on the town in New York.
We knew Tom since we were teenagers hanging on the corner (Connie's corner). almost every night.. He was such a
good listener if you had a problem. We will miss him very much.
Love, Tom and Connie Mongan

I only met Tom in person once after ‘meeting’ him many times on the phone. They were usually times of need. I needed assurance that the world just might be ok, and he gave me that, with love. I can say this: with Tom’s passing, some of us have to step up our game a lot for the world to remain ok. MD

We are heartbroken that Tommy has left us for that big Court Tennis court but are sure that he is now watching over all of us with the great love he managed to show to all, especially to children. Tommy was a big part of our lives from the first time we met him in 1969 through all the years up to his leaving us for his much deserved reward in Heaven. He was indeed a legend and will be remembered for his kindness and especially his sense of humor. Although we can't be up there to honor and remember Tommy at his service, we will be praying for God to give his children peace and strength. Sending our love to all his family, Jim and Charlen Cathcart
