Obituary for Thomas J. Soyka

March 4, 2018
Doylestown, Pennsylvania


Thomas J. Soyka, 89, of Doylestown, PA died on March 4, 2018 at Doylestown Hospital surrounded by his family. Born in Flushing, NY, Tom was a former resident of Flemington, NJ, Reston, VA and retired to Milford, DE before moving to Doylestown. But he always remained a New Yorker at heart.

Tom attended Brooklyn Poly Tech College and was a veteran of the US Army. He served during the Korean Conflict and was stationed in Germany, Guam and Japan. He was employed by Stewart Warner as a Regional Sales Manager and by NEC as a Director of Marketing and Sales. He enjoyed traveling for work throughout the continental United States and Japan. Tom retained his thirst for knowledge until the end of his life. He was the family historian and read the Almanac from cover to cover every year. The family often said, "Before there was Google, there was Dad."

Tom (aka Sonny) is the son of the late John and Mary (Hyland) Soyka and the devoted husband of 60 years to Alma (Marquez) Soyka. He is the loving father of Michael Soyka, June and her husband Ken Cook and Joanne and her husband Mark Samios, and is the proud grandfather of Maria Soyka.
