Thomas Laughlin

Thomas Patrick Laughlin, 66, of Fairfax Station, Va., passed away on Jan. 14, 2014.

Thomas was a beloved husband of 43 years of Claudia Kopp Laughlin; caring father of T. Matthew (Kelly Anne) Laughlin and Cara Laughlin (Terrence James) Kee; dear grandfather of Pierce Matthew and Shane Thomas Laughlin and McKenna Claudeen and Ronan Terrence Kee; son of Betty and the late Charles Laughlin; brother of Dr. C. David (Nancy) Laughlin and Susan (Dave) Bedford; uncle of Gevony Williams, Mannon Gilroy, Conn Laughlin, and Jamie and Sarah Bennett; also survived by a loving extended family, and many close friends.

Thomas worked for Xerox as a sales manager for 30 years. In his free time he hunted, fished, beat his buddies at poker, educated people on the game of setback, attended sporting events, hosted his friends, and more than anything enjoyed spending time with his family – especially his grandchildren.

Friends will be received from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday at the Demaine Funeral Home, 5308 Backlick Road, Springfield, Va. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at the Church of the Nativity in Burke, Va. Interment will follow immediately at Columbia Gardens, Arlington, Va.

Donations can be made in Thomas’ memory to Capital Caring.
