Thomas Francis Driscoll
February 2, 1945 – February 23, 2022
Thomas Francis Driscoll was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 2, 1945 and died unexpectedly at home in Yosemite Lakes Park on February 23, 2022.
Tom was a carpenter and general contractor, building at least 50 homes in YLP before accepting the position of journeyman carpenter at Fresno City College in the late 1980s. He retired from Fresno City College and the State Center Community College District as a construction manager in 2006 and started his own business, Sierra Building & Design. He returned to SCCCD in 2010 as a consultant, overseeing large construction projects throughout the District. Tom felt it was his duty to serve the District and its students and staff by ensuring fiscal responsibility and above all, safety for everyone on campus. He retired for good on January 1, 2021, at the age of 75.
He was predeceased by his son, Sean Michael Driscoll, just three short months before his own untimely passing. He is survived by his loving wife Terry; daughter Shayne Driscoll and her daughters Kendall and Andie; daughter Anne Flanagan and her husband Kevin and children Sophie, Cooper, and Ella; son Douglas Lescoulie and his wife Leslie and children Avery and Owen; son Joseph Lescoulie and his wife Elizabeth and children Alia and Thomas; son Matt Wilkinson and his wife Cassy and sons Miles and Marshall; daughter-in-law Heather Airey and her children Alyssa, Drake, and Ellery; grandson Haiden Tingley; sister-in-law Bonnie Keefer; mother-in-law Maggie O’Fallon and father-in-law Earl Keefer and his wife Nancy.
A service will be held on Sunday, May 1, at 1 p.m. at the Yosemite Lakes Park clubhouse. Feel free to wear you favorite Hawaiian shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Tom would have loved it!
