Thomas Bargiel, passed away peacefully at home with family by his side on August 4, 2019. Tom is survived by wife Gloria, daughter Desiree, sister Lisa, Niece Haley and Cousin Joanne Mikol.
Tom was born on July 27, 1950 to parents Charles and Libby Bargiel in Chicago Illinois, and lived near downtown Las Vegas where his father worked in the exciting world of Las Vegas gaming. Tom followed in his father’s footsteps and worked at the best Casinos in Vegas-notably the world-famous Desert Inn, and the crown of the Las Vegas strip, the Bellagio.
On April 22, 1972 Tom married the love of his life Gloria Elzalaki. Over the next 40 years he and Gloria enjoyed the quaint town of Boulder City where they raised their daughter Desiree Bargiel and lived next to Tom’s lifelong best friend, Sister, and Ballerina Amy Arnaz and her daughter Haley Arnaz and husband Desi Arnaz Jr.
Thomas loved mountain biking, esoteric talks by Vernon Howard, anything to do with cars, and walking his dogs. He prided himself in having a tool or gadget to fix just about anything. In his free time, you’d most likely find him working on projects around his home or enjoying great food with family, and his absolute favorite vacation spot was Del Mar, California.
Tom will be remembered by his family as someone who would do anything to help a neighbor and everything to help his family. He will be truly missed.
A private memorial will be held for him at the next family gathering. Family and friends can sign an online memorial guestbook at www.bouldercityfamilymortuary.com
