Thomas L. "Tommy" "T.T." Thomas
Oct 26, 2021

Thomas L. "Tommy" "T.T." Thomas passed away peacefully at home on October 26th, 2021, at 77 years young. He was the loving husband of Darlene (Souza) Thomas and resident of Rochester, MA.
Born in Provincetown MA, he was predeceased by his mother and father Marion (Henrique) & Manuel Thomas and his sister Marion Joan Morgan.
He is survived by his four daughters, Jodi Lin Thomas and her husband James Baker of New Bedford, Jami Lee (Thomas) Edmundson and her husband Bruce of Dartmouth, Jessica (Samson) Golino and her husband Sebastian of Glastonbury, CT and Molly (Samson) Cardoso and her husband Junior of Fairhaven, in addition to 5 grandchildren, Tyler Edmundson and his wife Jessica, Maximus Golino, Maya Golino, Declyn Cardoso and Paxton Thomas Cardoso and one great-granddaughter Harper and a great grandson Ryder on the way as well as several sisters in law, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A heart of gold, albeit weak, he was happiest by the ocean, where worked tirelessly as a seafood broker and maritime pilot boat captain for the last 50 years. He was the proudest "Pops" who cherished time with his grandchildren, the loudest fan at every one of their sporting events, pony rides, or birthdays. He loved boats, cars, going to the movies, and reminiscing telling old stories from his youth with his cronies from what he considered God's country, Provincetown, where he was a proud resident, fisherman and graduate of Provincetown High School in 1962.
He will be remembered for his generosity, his willingness to help those in need, his tremendous work ethic, and how proud he was of his family. He without a doubt was the "finest kind."
Funeral services will be private, a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the LVAD team of Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston and Dr. Michael Rocha for the incredible care they provided the last several years.
His private arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Road, Mattapoisett. For online guestbook, visit

Wesley N. Bowman, 80, of Mattapoisett died unexpectedly at home on Saturday, October 23, 2021. He was the husband of Barbara A. (Kubik) Bowman, with whom he shared 61 years of marriage.
Born, raised and educated in Mattapoisett, he was the son of the late Alexander Bates Bowman and the late Edna (Morell) Bowman and lived in Mattapoisett all of his life. Wes left school at an early age to work with his dad taking care of properties in town. He then worked for Pallatroni and Gingras and Paul Cleary until he started his own lawn care and tree cutting service and backhoe business. He was the Mattapoisett tree warden from 1974 to 1987. He then ran a successful campaign for Mattapoisett highway surveyor and proudly served in that position from 1988 until 2006. When Wes retired he never stopped working, he actually worked until the day he died.
Wes was a mentor to so many young men who were starting their own businesses and helped many to find their way and was a second father to many. If you needed it, he would have it for you. He loved his town and all the characters in it, as he was one too. He loved his Fords but most of all he loved his family and was happiest when they were around. He was so proud of every one of them. Though he struggled with his aging and overworked body, he would be quick to say, "But rather than that, I'm doing alright." He was the best Dad and Poppa. Wesley was loved by so many and will be missed terribly.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara; four children, Wesley Bowman, Jr., Nancy Duff, Susan Henshaw and her husband Todd, and Gary Bowman and his wife, Kim; eight siblings, June Emerson, Nancy Borden, Warren Bowman, Joyce Gagnon, Joan Garib, Frank Bowman, Sandra Dittoe, and David Bowman; ten grandchildren, Mitchell Duff, Wesley Bowman, III, Timothy Bowman, Marissa Donovan, Rachael Sweet, Mary-Louise Duff, TJ Henshaw, Matthew (Joe) Duff, Mason Henshaw, and John Bowman; five great-grandchildren, Colin Sweet, Travis Sweet, Chase Bowman, Caleb Bowman, and Daisy Louise Donovan; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family friends.

William (Billy) F. Murphy
Oct 22, 2021

William (Billy) F. Murphy passed peacefully from this life on Oct 22, 2021. He was husband of the late Mary D.(Swain) Murphy. There was gratitude but no surprise to watch him so peacefully pass, as that is the man we have always known: gentle and kind, never wanting to make things any more difficult than necessary for those he loved.
Born in Providence, Rhode Island to the late Viola A. (Murphy) Oliver, Billy spent most of his childhood in Fairhaven and Natick. He first went commercial fishing at age 16. He loved to share stories of his fishing days (and anyone who met him knows the man could spin a story), and the one that amused people the most was his surviving two ship sinkings, one right after the other! He served honorably in the Marines from 1954-1957 before returning to fishing, in the family tradition; he would continue to fish for the next 40 years, primarily with the Fairhaven and New Bedford fleets.
Bill was an avid lifelong reader, with interests ranging from history, religion and archeology to science and space. He truly loved to learn things and then share them with anyone who cared to sit for a moment and enjoy some time with him. His greatest joy was baseball and he had the ability to quote an unending number of statistics and stories. He and Mary even sponsored a Little League baseball team for years, something they both enjoyed immensely. In 1978 he enrolled in a pilot remote education program at BCC and by studying on the boat and listening to taped audio lectures, he graduated with honors. He remained engaged and curious his entire life.
Survivors include his daughter Kathleen H. Santos of Acushnet, a son Shawn J. Murphy of Fairhaven and his granddaughter Grace Mary also of Acushnet. He is also survived by his brother Kenneth Oliver and his wife Linda of Florida; his sister Dorene Riggs of Florida and his late sister Juanita Chandley of Florida. He was beloved "Uncle Billy" to numerous nieces and nephews who will remember him for his gentle disposition and perpetual smile.
Bill spent his last few months at Care One of New Bedford and his family will be forever grateful to the nurses, aides and entire staff there for their capable professionalism and kindness, and for filling Bill's days with comfort and smiles.
While funeral arrangements are private, there will be a Celebration of Life for Bill at a future time still to be determined. He will be remembered fondly and missed greatly by many.

Joe Carver
Oct 19, 2021

Joe Carver died peacefully on October 19, 2021, surrounded by family. Joe was born and raised in Beaver, Pennsylvania and was an active Beaver Bobcat Class of '55 alum. He graduated from Dickinson College in 1959. It was there he met his wife, Judy, and began his lifelong career in higher education.
As a dean and director of admissions, Joe's conversational and curious nature thrived as he interviewed hundreds of potential students for incoming freshman slots at Philadelphia College of Art, Hobart College, Wells College, Babson College, and UMass Dartmouth. Joe's career took him to high schools and college nights all over the US and around the world, where he engaged and stayed in touch with people from diverse backgrounds. As a Dickinsonian, Joe maintained his connection as both an active alum and a 20-year admissions volunteer. He was awarded a Distinguished Alumni - Outstanding Devil's Advocate Award for his contributions.
Joe kept up a mediocre golf game and was an avid sports fan - from the Boston Red Sox to the University of Arizona Women's Softball team. He was player/coach for many Mill Brook Road neighborhood turkey day hoop competitions. He served as a marshal for PGA Tournaments in Massachusetts and Arizona.
As a staunch supporter for his Democratic Party, Joe did not have much patience for opposing political views. He actively campaigned for candidates dating back to George McGovern and on through Joe Biden.
Joe surrounded himself with state-of-the-art technology which often outwitted him. Computer lessons at the local computer center and help from his granddaughters kept him up-to-date with his gadgets. He was also known for the care of his cars and the style - from VW Beetles, in the early days, to Saab convertibles.
Joe was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Virginia (Ginny) Carver and his brother James (Jim) Carver. He was the faithful companion of Jake the golden retriever, also deceased.
Joe is survived by Judy (Judith MacAllister Graham) his wife of 61 years and life partner. Together, Joe and Judy were constantly active with friends from every chapter of their lives. Parties, couples over for a cocktail (for Joe, gin on the rocks with an occasional olive or two), traveling to visit former classmates, and trips to Italy and South Africa were all ways they stayed in touch with dear friends. Joe and Judy spent the last 15 years dividing their time between their homes in Marion, Massachusetts, and Green Valley, Arizona. The casita camaraderie, not to mention Sonoran hot dog Wednesdays, were essentials.
Joe is also survived by his son Mark David Carver and wife Annie (McLaughlin) of Medway, Massachusetts, and his daughter Becky Bozadjian of Medfield, Massachusetts. He was blessed with five granddaughters: Rachel Bozadjian, Bryce Bozadjian, McKenzie Carver, Emily Bozadjian, and Abigail Carver. Known by Joe, Joey, Dad, Pal Joey, and JoeB, he was the family unit leader, always initiating a dinner conversation by introducing an important and often controversial topic to debate with his granddaughters.
Visiting hours were held at the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals in Mattapoisett. A celebration of Joe's life will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please send tribute contributions in Joe's name to the Ben James Scholarship or Dickinson College, PO Box 1773, Carlisle PA 17013.
