Birth: Dec. 11, 1892
Death: Nov. 4, 1975
Union County
New Jersey, USA

Mr Thomas Joseph McCormack was born on 11 December 1892. He boarded the Titanic at Queestown as a third class passenger. He was returning from Aghnacliffe, Co Longford to his home in Bayonne, New Jersey where he worked as a bartender.

Accompanying Tom were his two cousins, Philip and John Kiernan. Tom McCormack lost his two cousins.

After his rescue he returned to New Jersey where he continued to work as a bartender.
He served during WWI and eventually married but had no children. He often spoke about the Titanic disaster and frequently was interviewed on the anniversary of the disaster. He retired to Elizabeth, New Jersey where he lived with his nephew during the last years of his life. Bedridden for several years, Tom McCormack died on 4 November 1975 at the age of 82. He was buried at the Holy Name Cemetery, Jersey City, New Jersey. While a stone marks the location of the "McCormack" grave, only the name of Tom's wife Mary (who died in 1962) was ever inscribed. After Tom's death, his relatives never saw to it to have his name engraved also.
