Thomas P. Cahalan Jr

1947 ~ 2023

It is with deep sadness that we mourn the death of Thomas P. Cahalan, Jr. who resided in Park City, Utah. Tom was born in February 1947 in Harrisburg, PA. He graduated from Mercersburg Academy where he was an All American swimmer. He then graduated from the University of Pittsburgh as an industrial engineer.

Tom’s career in Pennsylvania for several years was as president of W&L Sales Company, a wholesale beer distributor in central PA. He was philanthropic with his time, including service as president of the Harrisburg YMCA, president of Raffles Insurance Group, and president of Park Meadows Country Club.

Tom had many friends throughout the country, and he always loved to tease his friends with a quick jab or funny comment, followed by his charming smile. He is best remembered for his compassion, kindness, and willingness to help others.

He loved golfing, skiing, and hiking and thought Park City was the perfect place for him and Linda. We will miss Tom’s vibrant personality and remember his legacy through our rounds of golf, turns that shower powder on our faces, and solace from a hike in the mountains.

He is survived by his loving wife Linda, his sister Elizabeth Gillmor and her family, his sister-in-law Marianne Cahalan, and his many, many friends.
Tom’s favorite charities were the Harrisburg YMCA and Mercersburg Academy.

A remembrance of Tom will be held at a later date.


We offer our sincerest condolences to Linda, Tom’s family and his many friends. His wit, humor and warm smile will always remain in our memories.

I had the great luck and wonderful pleasure of meeting Tom, for the first time over 40 years ago. Since then, during those some 40 years, Tom and I came to have shared interests in the beer business, in governmental affairs, and in more recent years, the fine arts.

Tom was a great friend to me and I am so very very sorry that we have lost such a great man.

My sincerest sympathies to Linda and Tom's extended Family and Friends.

Linda and Family. My deepest sympathies to you all. He was someone very special and will be greatly missed. I was so fortunate to work with Tom for more than 25 years. He was a mentor to many and his guidance and encouragement was life changing for me. I will forever be thankful to him for the opportunities he gave me and share in your sadness on his passing.

Someone so special will not be forgotten. You leave behind a legacy of kindness, compassion and professionalism only a few people ever possess. You have always been viewed as a great mentor to so many people. This world lost a great human with your passing. Our prayers go out to Linda and the rest of Tom's family in this time of great sorrow.
