He was a very talented finish carpenter, and his work will live on. Alfred loved the beach, walking with Yvonne and selflessly helping the church, family, and friends. He had many friends from different facets of his life, and he was very loyal to them all. He spent countless hours working at his children’s homes. His work was always impeccable, and he took enormous pride in everything that he did. He loved Yvonne with all his heart, he loved his boys and most of all, he gained so much joy from being involved with his grandchildren. He was a man of strong Catholic faith and attended church every week. He loved his church, Our Lady of Pity, and his French-Canadian heritage, but most of all, he loved his family and would do anything for them. Alfred was predeceased by his wife of 66 years Yvonne M. Gallant (Mailhiot), brothers Norman, Richard, and Marcel, sisters Rita Gorham and Jean Regan. He is survived by his sons Steven (Mary Jane) of Andover and David, (Susan) of Watertown and his six grandchildren; Jaclyn Gagnon and her spouse Seth, Amanda Gallant, Trent Gallant and his spouse Mengting, Marielle Gallant, Grace Gallant and her fiancé Tarek, Sarah Gallant, two great grandchildren; Jane Gagnon and Liam Gagnon; sisters Lillian Gallant and Elaine Dwyer, sisters-in-laws Phyllis Bagdasarian and Laura Gallant.

Thomas J. Plsek

Died : Feb 12, 2024

location-icon

Cambridge, MA

Thomas J. “Tom” Plsek, a long time resident of Woburn, passed away at Mt. Auburn Hospital, Cambridge Monday evening, February twelfth, with his long -time best friend and wife, Stephany, there at his side. Sadly, for the last four years, Tom struggled with Lewy Body Disease. As a result, this illness forced him to retire from a position he so loved, Chair Emeritus and Professor at Berklee College. Tom had been Chair of the Brass Department for over forty years, where he taught Acoustics and Trombone. In his free time, Tom would put his skills to work in a musical organization called the Mobius Group. Here, he truly unleashed his creativity. He worked alongside many talented artists of various fields, including Tom’s participation in the Gu Series. These monthly concerts would eventually be nominated as one of the top ten dance events in Boston of 2002. His passion for teaching was obvious! Students were what it was all about for him. He felt strongly that students came to him with “so much enthusiasm, so many different backgrounds and cultures, along with an extreme range of abilities and experiences. Each one was a challenge to teach!”. His philosophy was easy to follow but was very effective for his style of teaching, showing his eye for detail. Quote: “I believe in doing simple things as perfectly as possible. If you can do simple things really well, the difficult things will develop”. Tom’s prowess with the trombone was recognized internationally. He was a true pioneer in expanded brass techniques, music improvisations, and multi-media performances, performing in numerous venues and prestigious concert halls across the globe. Such locations included a solo performance at the Forfest Festival in Kormeriz, in the Czech Republic; and the Hochschule fur Musik in Trossingen, Germany. When it came to travelling, Tom and Stephany spent a wealth of time in Galway, Ireland. Whether it was on a sabbatical or just a vacation, Galway was the place. It became a second home for them, where they had the good fortune of having family and close friends alongside them throughout the years. Flying planes was always an adventure! Tom received his pilot’s license some years ago and truly enjoyed the freedom of flight! Even after pulling into the hangar for the last time, aviation remained a big interest for Tom. He even got to visit the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C., a trip he no doubt found very informative and exciting. Summertime in Rockport with family and friends was also a favorite time for Tom. Walks on the beach, in the woods, communing with nature, it was all so fascinating, tranquil, and comforting. During one of his long stays in Ireland, Tom found himself taking frequent walks along the cliffs of Kerry. Occasionally, a raven would appear, and through his expertise in sound and love for birds, Tom had learned to communicate with them! So, strolling across the steep shores of the Emerald Isle may at times, take just a little longer. At home in Woburn, Tom would often find himself visited by a flock of wild turkeys. Every day he would throw bird seed into the yard for them, and every fall they would return. Soon they came to recognize him and would come poking around out back even when he wasn’t home. One of Tom’s greatest passions was getting to cook a meal. A visit from his grandson was always a great occasion for him to prepare his most revered dish: blueberry pancakes. A wise and observant man, Tom never turned down a good conversation. A native Texan, he always shared his opinions with the slightest hints of a southern accent in his slow and deliberate cadence. Often he would mix in slang from his Czech heritage, before having to explain these phrases he used out of habit. From his childhood, and life as a young man, he always shared tales of his funny moments and profoundest experiences. Flying planes, walks in the woods, on the beach, in a concert hall or on the streets of Galway, Tom loved it all! A gentle soul, he always made an effort to better the lives of people around him, whether through a sage lesson, a musical display, or simply sharing a joke. Tom loved life, Tom loved music, Tom loved people. Beloved husband of Stephany Tiernan. Loving father of Ian King and grandfather of Rowan King of Salem. Cherished brother Bob Plsek of West, Texas. Remembrances may be made in honor of Tom to The MGH Parkinson’s Lewy Body Fund, Massachusetts General Hospital Development Office, 125 Nashua Street, Suite 540, Boston, MA 02114, Attention: Kylie Wojcicki. Arrangements are under the direction of the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home and Services are private.
