Thomas (Tommy) Scott Leslein,  January 13, 1997 - April 7, 2018

Tommy, 21, of Cuyahoga Falls, passed painlessly away into angels' arms on April 7, 2018 as a result of a car accident.

Thomas was born on January 13, 1997 into a huge, loving family. He graduated from Archbishop Hoban High School with the class of 2015. He attended Immaculate Heart of Mary from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Both IHM and Hoban gave Tommy a set of lifelong friends and memories.

Tommy played sports his whole life and was coached by his father. He chose to pursue volleyball at Baruch college in New York City where he lived the best year of his life.

His charismatic smile, personality, and love of all people will be greatly missed. His biggest passion was his family, especially “the cousins”, an unbreakable bond, and he was forever the life of the party, bringing laughter and joy to any occasion.

He leaves behind his father, Scott Leslein (Elizabeth Upham); his mother, Julie Kinzel (Gregory Carozza); his beloved sisters, Molly and Annie Leslein; his maternal grandparents, Paul and Cindy Kinzel, and his paternal grandmother, Addie Leslein.
He also leaves a collection of aunts and uncles: Mike and Dani Leslein, Michelle and Dale Schlesinger, Melissa and Bob Willett, Craig Leslein, Brian Kinzel, Paula and Joe Hubbell and cousins: Ian and Allie, Katie and Ralphie, Taylor, Allison, Patrick, Sarah, Madison, and Matthew, who we pray heals as he was with Tommy at the time of the accident.

Tommy is now with his Grandpa Frank, two peas in a pod. Tommy’s life can be summed up by the lyrics to one of his favorite songs, a song that inspired him to get sibling tattoos with his sisters, “Always remember there was nothing worth sharing, like the love that let us share our name.”

Calling hours 4-8pm Wednesday at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 1905 Portage Tr. Cuyahoga Falls,OH 44223, where Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10am on Thursday, April 12.

In lieu of flowers, we believe that Tommy would want donations to the Thomas S. Leslein Memorial Fund through GoFundMe. These donations will go toward Tommy’s lifelong friend’s sister, Marie DiCola, in honor of her fight with Neuroblastoma.
