Boncek, Thomas

Thomas M. Boncek “Stubba” of East Dedham, passed away peacefully on November 2, 2023. He was the son of the late Thomas N. and Elizabeth Boncek of East Dedham, and the brother of the late Dennis Boncek of East Dedham.

Thomas dedicated over a decade of coaching to the Dedham Youth Baseball League. During his free time he could be seen umpiring at the baseball fields all over Eastern Massachusetts. In his free time, Thomas enjoyed bowling, golfing and summer vacations in Maine.
