Thomas Matthew Davies, June 18, 1940 - August 8, 2017


Thomas Matthew Davies, our beloved father, and grandfather passed away on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017. Thomas was born on June 18, 1940, to Garfield and Elma Davies in Butte, Montana. He was the second son born a mere nine months after his brother Charles. They were lifelong best friends. He grew up on the Boulevard, attending Madison and Webster Garfield Elementary Schools. Following graduation from Butte High School in 1959, he joined the U.S. Air Force and trained as a mechanic. After being honorably discharged, Tom returned to Butte and went to work for the Anaconda Co., as a machinist, retiring in 1983 when it closed. Tom married his sweetheart, Maridorothy Rollman in Butte at St Ann’s Church on Jan. 18, 1964. They were blessed with three daughters: Mary Ann, Joann, and Diann. They also had five granddaughters: Amber, Miranda, Hannah, Dawnann, and Leighann. Tom loved the outdoors, hunting, and fishing with his brother. Being born “Finnish,” fishing was in his blood. When he was young, he and his brother Chuck would ride the train from Butte to the Big Hole to fish for the day. When he retired, he and his brother spent many days at Clark Canyon Dam in his boat trolling or on the ice in an ice shack -- always competing for bragging rights. Tom passed his love of the outdoors on to his girls. There were many family trips every year to Jerry Creek and the Ruby Reservoir to hunt, fish and camp. Tom also enjoyed sports. When he was young he played hockey and ran track. As an adult, he played city league basketball and softball. He also loved swimming. He taught all his daughters and granddaughters how to swim. The granddaughters all learned at Big Sky on our yearly family vacation and at Fairmont Resort. Tom continued to swim at Fairmont weekly. He also taught all five granddaughters how to speed skate. He became very active in the Montana Amateur Speed Skating Association. He traveled with the girls all over the U.S. and Canada to speed skating meets and Calgary for summer camp. With all of his girls graduating from Butte High School he was a big supporter. He attended all of their activities including volleyball, basketball, track, softball and band performances. Tom also had a love of animals, especially his dogs. He was active in the Treasure State Retriever Trials in the 1970s. His golden retriever Fred was a state champion. He had many special fur pets over the years. He was preceded in death by his wife, Maridoe; brother, Chuck; son-in-law, John Hackman; and his parents. He is survived by his daughters, Mary Ann Hackman, Joann and Gary Bracco, and Diann and Andrew Brinig; granddaughters, Amber and Kurt Kuchtyn, Miranda and Hannah Hackman (John Evans), and Dawnann and Leighann Bracco, all of Butte. He is also survived by two great-grandchildren, Ava and Kutler Kuchtyn, who were the sparkle in his eyes and a third great-granddaughter due to arrive in September named Huntleigh. He is also survived by many others, including the Davies, Lawrence, Rollman and Conroy families. Memorial services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 19, at Duggan Dolan Mortuary. The family will receive visitors starting at 9:30. After graveside services, a luncheon will be held at the McQueen Athletic Club. Memorials may be sent to Shriners Hospital in Spokane, Washington, or the donor’s choice.
