Sutton – Thomas P. DiPersio Sr., 71, of Sutton, former longtime resident of Hudson and South Yarmouth, died Sunday, May 31, 2015, surrounded by his loving family. He leaves his beloved wife of 48 years, Donna L. Loureiro.

Thomas was born in Marlborough, son of the late Angelo and Viola (Marini) DiPersio. He was raised in Hudson, where he resided most of his life, and was 1961 graduate of Hudson High School. He was a member of the football and track teams during high school.

Thomas worked as a land surveyor for many years and, in 1984, he started his company, Thomas Land Surveyors and Engineering Consultants in Hudson. He recently retired as President of the company.

In 2005, he moved to South Yarmouth where he had resided the past 10 years. He served as the Vice Chairman on the Planning Board, served on the Design Review Committee, and also served as Chairman of the Waste Water Committee in South Yarmouth. He and his wife Donna most recently moved to Sutton.

He was always active as a volunteer during his children’s activities in sports as youths and served as the President of the Hudson Youth Football Program. He was a member of Saint Michael’s Parish in Hudson.

Thomas truly enjoyed all the memorable times spent in South Yarmouth later in his life. He enjoyed going to the beach with his grandchildren and spending time on the ocean sailing.
