Thomas Dalton Bambury, 49, of Rotterdam, passed away suddenly on December 9, 2018. He was born on June 5, 1969, son of the late V. Dalton (Duff) Bambury and is survived by his mother, Jean F. (Connelly) Bambury of Rotterdam.

Thomas obtained his Associate’s degree in both Chemical Dependency Counseling and Human Services from SUNY Schenectady County Community College, where he received the Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence and served on the Board of Trustees. He was devoted to helping people in his role as a counselor at Mohawk Opportunities in Schenectady. Previously, he worked at the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. He was a communicant of St. Madeleine Sophie Church in Guilderland.

Thomas was very involved as an actor, singer and director in many local community theater groups where he gave many newcomers a chance to shine on the stage. He found great joy in theater, movies, and entertainment, and brightened the day of his hundreds of Facebook friends with his daily morning inspirational posts, promoting kindness. Thomas was an active supporter of the LGBTQ community.

He is also survived by his sisters, Meg (Michael) Lisi of Rotterdam and Beverly (Robert) Moquin of Marlborough, CT. Thomas is also survived by five nieces who were his pride and joy: Kerri (Kris) Ferrari of Oxnard, CA, Amy Tedesco (Sean Simmons) of Rotterdam, Kelly Moquin (Justin McLees) of Sacramento, CA, Shannon Moquin of Marlborough, CT and Megan Moquin of Marlborough, CT. He is also survived by great-nieces, Adelynn Rose and Lyla Jean, of Oxnard, CA, his aunts, Mary
Hannon of Rexford and Janet Burke of Oceanside, CA, his uncle, Joseph Connelly III of Salem, SC and many cousins on the east and west coasts. He was the proud godfather of Harmony. Thomas was the grandson of the late Arthur and Helen Bambury and Joseph and Sarah Connelly.

Thomas touched those he met with his quick wit and will be remembered for his spirit of kindness, tolerance and peace.

A gathering to celebrate Thomas's life will be held on Thursday evening December 13th from 4 to 7 pm at Bond Funeral Home, Broadway & Guilderland Avenue, Schenectady, NY, followed on Friday morning at St. Madeleine Sophie Church, 3500 Carman Road, Schenectady,where a Mass of Christian burial will be Celebrated at 10 am Relatives and friends are invited to attend.

I had the privilege of working with Thomas through the theatre community and I even directed him in a staged reading of "The Art of Murder" at Homemade Theatre. His wit, warmth and generosity of spirit will live with me forever. RIP, dear friend.

I first met Tom when we were Freshman at Guilderland High School. We shared classes over our years there. Anytime our paths would cross in the halls, he would always stop and say hello. Tom was that kind of person that would remember you and say hello to you. It has been over 30 years since we graduated from high school and how I wish I could stop him one last time to say hello to him. I will remember his smile, his laugh and passion for the stage.

Our sweet Thomas, how can we go on without you? You were one of a kind, a special light that has burned out too quickly. We will miss you forever.

Thomas was such a special friend and confidante through high school and beyond. Some of my best and cherished memories of school involved time spent with him. He was one of a kind and a true friend and I loved him very much. I am blessed to have known him and to have kept in touch with him through the years. His inspirational daily messages made my day every morning. My deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time.
