Obituary: Thomas F. Wall Jr.

Thomas F. Wall Jr., at 72
Thomas F. Wall Jr., of Hull, died June 6, after a long illness. He was 72.
An Air Force veteran, he later served as a constable for the city of Boston and then worked in the Street Lighting Division of the Boston Public Works Department.  
Mr. Wall was supreme director of Region 1 for the Order of Alhambra, which focuses on charity work for disabled children, and happily served as a loyal member. He also was a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus and served as a colonel in the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels.
After he retired, Mr. Wall enjoyed his days as a greeter at daily Mass at the Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham. 
He had a lifelong love of animals, which he shared with his daughter, bringing her to various petting farms and to see the goats at the abbey. In his younger days, he would bring home various stray dogs, cats, and even squirrels.
Mr. Wall loved to shop and drive all over the country. He would give the shirt off his back to any family member or friend. He was very generous with his family, friends, and those he didn’t even know. He will be missed by many and was loved by all.
Mr. Wall is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Susan; and his daughter, Deborah, and son-in-law, Mark J. Lucreziano, of Hull. He is also survived by his uncle, George Yered, of Needham; his cousin, Joseph Geary, of Weymouth; many extended family members and friends; and his precious cats: Milo, Miss Muffin, and Tom Kitten.
Visiting hours will be held at Downing Cottage Funeral Chapel, 21 Pond St., Hingham, on Friday, June 15, from 5-8 p.m. His funeral Mass will be celebrated at the Glastonbury Abbey, 16 Hull St., Hingham, on Saturday at 10 a.m.
