Thomas Brady Hartford

Born on December 8, 1981 in Nashua, New Hampshire
Departed on March 15, 2021, in Palm Bay, Florida

Thomas Brady Hartford, age 39, passed away peacefully at his home on March 15, 2021. He was born December 8, 1981, in Nashua, NH to Tom and Dianne Hartford.

He was a young man with an old soul, who enjoyed tunes from Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin, to Tupac Shakur, Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson. Tommy loved sports and was quite the athlete growing up in Palm Bay, Florida. He would tell you he was a world-class athlete, but he was known as a bit of a storyteller. Tommy was well-rounded, like his music choice.

He had an infectious personality that one couldn’t help but smile and laugh when he was around. He fit in anywhere and with anyone. He did have one true passion, his family. He cared deeply for his family and friends. A perfect day for Tommy was sitting out back sharing a drink and a few laughs with family and friends.

He is survived by his mother, Dianne; brother, David; sister-in-law, Kristin; and many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Family and friends whose lives were touched by Tommy are invited to Brownlie Maxwell Funeral Home, 1010 Palmetto Ave, Melbourne, Florida, 32901, from 10am to 12pm on Saturday, March 20, 2021 to reminisce, grieve, swap stories, and support each other.

My uncle Tommy was the most enthusiastic, artistic and loving person ever. I will never forget all the wonderful times I had with him. I remember the last time I saw him I had given him 2 hugs instead of one and I’m the most thankful for that. He would take me out on my birthday and take me to the mall. I miss Him so much but I have great memories with him. He’s always going to be with me and all I can do is pray and keep him in my heart😘❤️
