Thomas Edward Paddy
November 1, 1926- October 4, 2013
Thomas Edward Paddy, 86, of Huntingtown passed away October 4, 2013, quietly at his home. He was born November 1, 1926 to Morris C. and Helen (Hall) Paddy. Tommy lived in Calvert County his entire life and left only during his time of service in the U.S. Army during WWII. He was a member of Carpenter’s Union 132 for 45 years. After his retirement, he and his wife Gladys spent the next ten years or more traveling the U.S. in their large camper. He loved country and blue-grass music and was often seen at blue-grass festivals in the area. He was a true gentleman and never turned down an opportunity to help anyone who asked and many who didn’t, and expected nothing in return. He was a kind, loving, gentle man who will be sorely missed by many.
Tommy was preceded in death by his loving wife of 55 years, Gladys F. Paddy; five brothers, Maurice “Roy”, James J. Albert W., Arthur W., and Robert L. Paddy; and seven sisters Dorothy Patterson, Frances King, Edna Paddy, Marian Lyons, Margaret Phipps, Betty Clark, and Emma Morgan. He is survived by his loving daughter, Mary Ellen Paddy of Deale; sister Doris Cochran of Chesapeake Beach; step-sons R. Wayne Gordy of Chesapeake Beach and R. Warren Gordy of Huntingtown. Also surviving are eight grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren; 29 great-great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, and his companion Joycelyn H. Patrick.
