Hanover, NH - Thomas A. Slavin, 56, died after a long illness on April 5, 2018 surrounded by loving family.
Born on November 2, 1961, to Richard and Agnes (George) Slavin, Tom grew up in Charlestown, NH and graduated from Fall Mountain Regional High School. He worked most of his life in medical transportation at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
