Thomas J. Sorce of Hinsdale passed away suddenly on November 11, 2019. Thomas shared many memories with his four siblings, Nancy M. Butler, Donna P. Insley, Joseph E. Sorce, and James R. Sorce and parents Dorothy and the late Joseph Sorce, growing up in Harwood Heights, Illinois. He attended grade school at St. Monica’s, Chicago, Illinois, Holy Cross High School, River Grove, Illinois, Triton College and the College of DuPage. While working for McDonald’s corporation he enjoyed participating in the Men’s Softball League and had many championships. He coached and held administrative positions for his two sons for numerous years in the Hinsdale Little League, All-Star Teams and Hinsdale Red Devils Travel Baseball Team. One of the most memorable was winning the 10-year-old All-Star Tournament. He also never missed a game watching his sons and daughter through their high school sports careers channeling the seed Gods for good luck. His travels consisted of going to soccer tournaments to cheer on and support his daughter’s soccer team wherever they went. He was a residential and commercial real estate agent for Coldwell Banker working with franchise hotels and new land developments in the area. Thomas spent years as a Community Service Officer for the Hinsdale Police Department. He also volunteered for the Hinsdale Fourth of July parade for many years as well as being an infamous Haunted Hinsdale storyteller. He had the opportunity of working for the Chicago Cubs which put a huge checkmark on his bucket list. Tom’s memory lives on in his amazing stories that will be told for years to come. His greatest love and accomplishment in life was his wife Susan of 42 years, watching his three children Thomas(Sara) Sorce Jr, Jason(Rebecca) Sorce and Cortney(Bryant) Gaynes excel and unconditionally loving his six grandchildren Parker, Paige and Dempsey Sorce, J.T. and Kaycee Sorce, and Palmer Gaynes.
