Obituary

Thomas R Shoff, 70, of Youngwood, passed away on Thursday, December 30, 2021. He was born on March 26, 1951, in McKeesport Hospital, the son of the late Robert and Patricia (McWilliams) Shoff. Tommy was a graduate of Hempfield Area High School. He spent many happy years with his beloved co-workers at the former Young's Red and White, Eat n' Park, Cracker Barrel and Shop n' Save. He was considered by many to be the unofficial Mayor of Youngwood, as well as the weatherman, city planner, and ambassador of goodwill. He was universally beloved by everyone who met him. He loved to spend his days at the Youngwood Sheetz making people smile. He never had a bad day and never met a person he didn't like. One of his proudest moments was the year he was chosen to represent his hometown as Mr. Light Up Night. He was a regular at the Youngwood VFW Post #211, a lifelong member of the Youngwood Volunteer Fire Department and a cherished member of the congregation at First Trinity United Church of Christ in Youngwood. He bled black and gold as a diehard Pittsburgh sports fan, he always knew the score to every game from high school to the pros. Tommy will be loved and remembered by his family, siblings, Dennis, Scott and Nancy; his nephews, Zach and Jake; and his great niece Willow. Due to the Pandemic and increase in illness, there will be no public visitation. The family knows the community would like to pay their respects to honor Tommy. As such, the family is planning on holding a memorial service to celebrate his life at a later date. The family suggests memorial contributions be made in Tommy's name to the Youngwood Fire Department or First Trinity United Church of Christ. Arrangements are entrusted to the C. Richard McCauley Funeral Home Inc. 101 S 4th St. Youngwood
