Thomas P Coen, 71, of Upton, formerly of Hopkinton, passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, March 22, 2021 with his wife, Karen (Wojciak nee Gagnon), at his side. He was predeceased by his wife Lorna (Wood). He showed tremendous strength, courage and determination during his 16 year battle with multiple myeloma. Due to his hard work ethic and diligence, he managed to climb the corporate ladder of success, retiring as the president of a division of Boston Scientific. Due to his passion for life, his generosity and unconditional love for family and friends, he managed to create everlasting bonds with all those fortunate enough to have had him in their lives. In a world that has been turned upside down, he led by example and showed us all, life is what you make of it, make the most of it. He certainly did.
Thomas was born in Philadelphia, PA, son of the late retired Captain Thomas and Edna Coen
