Thomas “Tom” Robert Hoyt, 64, of Wheeling, passed away peacefully at Liza’s Place on February 16, 2022.

Tom was born on August 19, 1957, the son of the late Charles H. “Bud” Hoyt and the late Nancy Hoyt. He graduated from Wheeling Central Catholic High School where he was a star athlete.

Tom loved all sports, but especially the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins. He loved to learn, particularly researching the history of Wheeling. He was the owner of Marathon Builders Contracting prior to his retirement due to health issues.

He is survived by his wife Mary, and was the proud father of Tiffany Harkness Hoyt (Jeremy Sagun) and Thomas Hoyt II (Shelia Willey). He adored his grandchildren Mandolyn and Jonah Harkness. Tom will be missed by his sisters Kathy Conner (Tim Sole), Tammy Faust (Don Faust), and Kelly Hoyt (Mike Cumberledge), as well as his nieces and nephews including Bryan Jenkins (Summer Jenkins), April Panas (Steve Panas), Stacy Ortiz (Luis Ortiz), Nicole Conner (Amandah Carbasho), Jamie Conner, Jonathan Conner, Josh Faust (Alison Crawford), Joie Tarnik (John Tarnik), his great nieces Alex Exner, Elena Bonfini, and his great nephew Houston Tarnik.

He held a special place in his heart for family friends Angeline Robertson, Brad Robertson, and their children Sofia, Bradford, and Blake.

Tom is preceded in death by his parents, his brother Charles H “Bud” Hoyt II, his nephew Alex Conner, and his best friend Brett Cain.

Family and friends will be received Saturday, March 5, 2022 from 2-4pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home in Elm Grove. A memorial party will be held in his honor at a later date.

My thoughts and prayers to the family, so very sorry for your loss. I knew I could count on Tom for a smile and a good game of pool while we were at Brett’s gigs! He was a very talented artist as well and am blessed with having some that he gave me.
