I had the pleasure of knowing Tom through his son Tyler, where I worked with both of them at Fun City. I always enjoyed my sports and fantasy sports conversations with him. Rest in Peace TL

I was very saddened to hear of Tom's passing. I hung with Tom from about age 8 to age 18, played a lot of ball together, loved his Dad, and my Dad enjoyed playing golf with Steve. Great family.

Condolences and blessings to the family.

Our family has known Tom for decades. We remember him as a very nice teenager and a very nice man. He was very kind and respectful to Mona and me. His smile and laugh were both contagious. We will keep his family in our thoughts and our prayers.

Tom's smile hadn't changed a bit from when I knew him at Lincoln School. He was quite a livewire in the classroom. Never in a LOT of trouble, but certainly never let things get dull. Sounds as if he hadn't changed much, which is a very good thing. My condolences to the family.
