Thomas F. Lukasik, 78, of Chicopee, passed away peacefully at CareOne at Redstone in East Longmeadow, MA on December 2, 2020. He grew up in the West End of Chicopee and was a lifelong resident of the city. Thomas was the son of the late Frank and Nellie (Dunaj) Lukasik. He was a former employee of the Springfield Armory in the 1960’s. He also spent 20 plus years employed as a machinist at the former American Bosch in Springfield, until it’s closing in 1986. A childhood accident left him blind in his right eye and to his regret left him ineligible for military service. He always had a deep respect for those who served our country. As a youth, he enjoyed playing sports, especially hockey. In 1973, Thomas married Josephine (Burowicz) Lukasik, his loving wife, for the past 47 years. He enjoyed hunting, listening to music, watching sports on television and was an avid reader. Among his favorite places to be was his beloved, (former) Camp Koo Koo on the banks of the Connecticut River, where he spent a great deal of time over the years. A special thanks to all those who provided him and our family with all those great stories and memories from those days. Thomas is survived by his wife, Josephine Lukasik, his sister, Frances Salamon of Chicopee, his brother, Robert, his three sons, Frank and his wife, Ann of Longmeadow; Stanley and his wife, Colleen of East Longmeadow; Thomas and his wife, Melissa of Chicopee; 6 grandchildren, Kayleigh, Caroline, Anniela, Cady, Mia and Gavin. Several nieces and nephews and their children. Funeral service will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675 or to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children, 516 Carew St., Springfield, MA 01104.
