Thomas L. Litts 69 of Schenectady, passed away on Thursday, April 25, 2013 after a long illness. Born on August 13, 1943 in West Charlton, he was the son of the late Harvey and Martha Litts. He was a lifelong resident of Schenectady County and graduated from Scotia Glenville High School in 1962. Tom was a dedicated employee of Union College, where he worked for more than 42 years, retiring as Facilities Services Electrical Foreman.
Tom enjoyed the outdoors, angling, was keen on family history and quick to recount tales of his Adirondack adventures in Benson, Newcomb and Goodnow Flow. He was also fascinated by old time music. Tom was an active member of the Adirondack Bluegrass League, where he recently served as a Board member. As much as anything, he loved to “jam” with his friends on stage at the “old folks home”, McConchies, Jackies Diner and especially in the circle.
Tom is survived by his children, Shane, Chris, Julie and Thomas, Jr; grandchildren, Lillian and Evan; and his brothers, William and David.
Relatives and friends are invited to call from 12-2pm Saturday, April 27 at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street, Ballston Spa. A graveside service will follow at the West Charlton Cemetery (Scotch Church Cemetery). In lieu of flowers, Tom asked that you please consider making a donation to Community Hospice of Schenectady or the American Cancer Society.
