Thomas Richard Jacox, a/k/a "Tom Terrific" of Jupiter, Florida died Saturday, July 1, 2017 at the Hospice Center of Palm Beach County after a short fight with cancer. Tom is survived by his wife, Patricia and his son Michael; his daughter-in-law Elizabeth and his granddaughter Emily; his siblings Sandra Reed, Ronald Jacox, Patricia Putetti, her husband Anthony, and Debra Jacox, as well as several nieces and nephews. Born in Waterbury, Connecticut, October 23, 1947 to Ivan and Bernice Jacox, Tom attended Wolcott High School and then shortly thereafter was drafted into the United States Army in November 1966, and served until he was honorably discharged in November 1968. Tom was a talented body man and painter, specializing in Kustom cars. Over the years he built and showed many Kustom cars throughout the Northeast and continued to do so once he relocated his family to West Palm Beach, Florida in 1982.

The family requests that dress be casual and please bring your classic cars and hot rods.
