Was in Morristown and thought it best to look up on the best to ever walk these streets. A true gentleman and a fantastic mentor. He was a gift to young man learning to make his way in the world.
To Mary, Tommy, Michael and Liz Sadly, I just learned of Tom’s passing in November. My sincerest condolences to all of you. Tom was a wonderful and long time friend and mentor, beginning at TGFA and throughout my career. He was the most kind, sincere, and thoughtful person I’ve ever met. You could always count on Tom to lighten the mood , tell a funny story and just smile. An authentic ‘Guys Guy’, always there to listen and advise when asked. Tom will be greatly missed, however I’m sure he is at peace in Heaven… God bless Tom!
Here's to the best Uncle ever and one the funniest men ever to live. Caring and loving no matter what else was going on around him. I will miss him.
My sincerest condolences to Mary and all the family and friends!
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.
