Thomas L. Lucia - December 29, 2012
On December 31, 2012, we at Great Northern Products mourn the loss of our dear friend.
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Thomas L. Lucia, one of the founding members of Great Northern Products, Ltd. and its worldwide group of companies. Tommy had 2 passions in life: seafood and people. He had great love, respect, knowledge and compassion for both!
His dedication and devotion to Great Northern Products and the Great Northern family was second only to that of his own family. He was the proud father of Joseph and Lisa who were the shining lights of his life.
As a co-worker, Tommy was obsessive with his relentless strive for perfection and would settle for nothing less. His drive and enthusiasm was the great force behind us.
As a friend, he was never at a loss for words if you needed advice, he always had time to listen if you needed to vent, and always had a shoulder if you needed to cry. When times were really hard, he had an amazing talent to be able to lift your spirits and make you laugh through your tears. Tommy showed such incredible courage through his battle with cancer. He was an inspiration to us all and we will always remember him as a special part of our family. We will indeed miss our “Tommy Turbot.”
