Tom was one of the friendliest people I have ever met. His warm and genuine personality always made a person feel at ease with him. Would have loved to talked with him about his baseball days. He will be greatly missed.

I will always remember Tom’s laugh and all of the good times that he and Mary and my husband and I shared in Mtn. Lakes raising our children so many years ago. He was a dear friend and I will miss him.

Tom was a special, warm person with a great sense of humor. We loved him very much and will miss seeing him at Mass.
