Thomas Enright

July 17, 1957 - September 27, 2018

Thomas Enright Beverly, MA - Thomas G. Enright, age 61, died at home on Thursday, September 27, with his wife Alix Woznick by his side, after a year-long battle with cancer. He shared 27 years of marriage with Alix, and was a loving father to Meredith, age 19. He was the son of Marie (Connolly) Enright, and Gerard J. Enright. Thomas was born in San Francisco, and raised in Marin County, California.

Thomas graduated from Terra Linda High School and from San Francisco State University. He lived in the Bay Area until relocating to the East Cost in 1996, living in Salem, Brooklyn, and settling in Beverly in 2001.

A lifelong music fan, Thomas worked in the music industry for many years, at the Music Stock Market and Rainbow Records in San Francisco, then in sales and marketing at Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab in Sonoma County, California. He moved to Salem in 1996 to work for the independent label Rykodisc, where he made many of the closest friends of his career. Company ownership changes led him to New York City for two years at Ryko/Palm and then back to the North Shore with Ryko again, followed by five years commuting to New York to work at EMI Label Services/Caroline Distribution. In recent years he had pursued training to make a career transition to healthcare, working most recently at Beverly Hospital.

Thomas was an avid sports fan. He swam and played water polo competitively in high school and college. He and his father Gerard shared a love of the San Francisco Giants baseball team and Willie Mays, and he loved going to Red Sox games with his daughter Meredith, including a memorable Father’s Day game against the Giants. Thomas and his family loved to travel all over the United States and the world, to Australia and Turkey, Iceland and Puerto Rico. His favorite destination was Paris. Thomas was passionate about all forms of art; he was an avid reader, loved film, and enjoyed going to museums. Most of all, he shared his love of music with his wife, Alix, and his daughter Meredith, and had recently started Supermegabot Music Concern with his close friend Jeff Rougvie.

In addition to his wife and daughter, Thomas is survived by two sisters, Marguerite Enright Rogers and Elizabeth Enright, both of California; as well as his parents-in-law Carolyn and Ben Woznick of Cambridge, Mass.
