Obituary for Thomas Joseph LaGatta

March 10, 1942 - August 4, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 77


Thomas Joseph LaGatta, age 77, passed away on Sunday, August 4, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas.

Tom remembered and recalled everyone from his many successful experiences: he knew every cousin, every customer of The Lumber Company in Euclid, and every classmate from Mayfield High School (class of 1960). He would tell stories for hours and we were always happy to listen.

Tom was born in 1942 in Cleveland, Ohio to Laura DePasquale and Rocco LaGatta, and followed his children to San Antonio, Texas in 2001. He was preceded in death by his daughter Lisa Marie LaGatta. He is survived by wife Barbara Svrga LaGatta; daughters Lorine LaGatta, M.D., and Lynette Culotta (husband Michael); son Dr. Thomas John LaGatta (fiancée Angela Linneman); grandchildren Andrew Shadley (wife Nicole), Sara Shadley (fiancé Matthew Rodriguez), Emma Sproul, Ryan, Jessica, and Scott Culotta; brother Lester LaGatta (wife Susan). He loved and is loved by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The family will receive friends from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 7, 2019, at Porter Loring Mortuary North in San Antonio, TX.

We ask that friends and family share memories and tributes for his children, grandchildren and future great-grandchildren.
