Thomas Jon Diddio

Thomas Jon Diddio passed away on January 8, 2020 in Morenci, AZ at the age of 38.  He was born on January 15, 1981 in Hackensack, New Jersey to Frank Anthony & Judith Doppio Diddio with siblings Laurie, Michael and his step-sibling Debra & Michael.

Thomas attended schools in Deming, New Mexico and married his one true love, Alison Rodriguez in Duncan, AZ on November 3, 2006.  The couple settled in Duncan where he began working as a Semi-truck driver.  He truly loved to drive his semi. They were soon blessed with a son, Michael Ryan. 

One of his favorite sayings was from Lane Frost “Don’t be afraid to go after what you want to do, and what you want to be, but don’t be afraid to be willing to pay the price.”  If you asked him how he was he would always say “just peachy”.

Thomas is survived by his loving wife, Alison and his son Michael.  He is also survived by his parents Diane Diddio, Daniel & Alice Rodriguez, his siblings; Laurie (Joel), Debra (Ronnie), Michael, Danielle (Daniel), Daniel (Kaylee), his nephews; Casper, Matthew, Manuel Jeremiah, Nathan, Liam & Noah, his nieces; Brianna, Katelin & Dusty Rose and his pets Bella & Molly.

He is preceded in death by his parents Frank & Judy Diddio, Michale Diddio and his Grandparents; the Diddio’s and the Doppio’s.

A funeral service for Thomas will be held on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at the McDougal’s Caldwell Funeral Chapel.
