Marilyn and family we are certainly very sorry for your loss of Tom. He was such a great person, so great with our son Craig helping him achieve Eagle Scout. Tom always told him it would help him out in the future and it certainly has. We send you our prayers and know that he's probably in heaven gathering all the scouts for a jamboree. The Colantoni's
I never knew Tom except on the Greylock repeater, and it seems that he was a cheerful presence on the air ever since I began using 2 meters in the 70s. I'll miss that voice ... and his wisdom. Dah-di-dah, Tom from W2BEW.
I had the great pleasure of working with Tom at WSBS. He was a kind "teddy bear" of a man. His voice will never be silenced. My sympathies to his family.
God Bless Tom Jay. A great American and true newsman. He was always a proud man and outstanding tough inquisitor.
May he rest in peace.
Tom, you will not only be missed by immediate family but your larger amateur radio family as well. I will personally miss your Volunteer Examiner sessions, but most of all your signature "WA1MJE in the mobile" identification. God Speed CUL 73 de NI1V

Many wonderful Boy Scout memories with Tom when we participated in Order of the Arrow, Camp Chesterfield and district camporees. I learned a lot about Scouting from you and Tom. He was a wonderful man and a friend to all. Our condolences on his passing.

I took the ham radio exam weeks before Tom passed. I didnt pass the exam and Tom took me aside and told me to never give up on the exam. He said that he failed it 5 times. I will take the exam again in January in honor of Tom.
Marilyn, our thought are with you and your family in this time of need. He touched many lives.
A wonderful man and friend.
Marilyn words cannot convery how I feel Ton defies the word friend and he will always have a special place in my heart
I'm thinking of you today, Tom, I know you're with all our family, telling your stories and I can hear your terrific laugh.I know you are at peace and feeling fine. Say hi for all of us to those we love so much. Love and prayers, "Cuz"
I will always remember the summers that I spent as a child in Ancram. Tom taught me how to dive off the diving board at the town pool. These are beautiful memories that I will cherish forever. God Bless you dear cousin and rest peacefully in God's loving hands. Marilyn, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your children. Love, Cousins Theresa & Vincent Battaglia
Tom was always a kind neighbor to us. It's amazing that we spoke with him just this last Thanksgiving and now he has been taken from us so suddenly. He will be missed.
Marilyn,my deepest condolences.As late as last week Tom was trying to get me to take a Ham exam. He was a great help to me during the tornado. We will miss him greatly, as a neighbor and a friend.
Dear Marilyn & family thoughts and prayers are with you

Tom J will always be remembered by me as the "Voice" not only of Gt. Barrington.... but also of the Berkshires. From the time I was just a young kid listening to WSBS back in the 60's.... that friendly..... delightful voice would comfort us.... even thru the worst storms and tragic stories on-air....about things here in the berkshires... and all the way out to his famous "Cape-of-Cod" on the Eastern Shores... lol
Although many of us didn't spend alot of time with Tom "in-person".... he was certainly a part of all of our families..... and we all knew him well....
Our dear Cousin Tom has left us too soon. He was very special to me and my family as they listened to my stories of Tom and Igrowing up. I will miss him always. Our prayers are with you Marilyn and Tom's special family.
His loving Cousin Barbara and her family

It is with much regret that we learned of Tom's death. He was a gifted member of our noBarc Radio club and a good friend. For both reasons he will be hard to replace. Our sympathies are with his families. Fellow hams,Joe, Pat & Mike Pietrowsky
What a sad shock to hear of Tom's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and his beloved children and grandchildren. I really enjoyed knowing and working with Tom at WBSL. As you know in your heart Marilyn, you were everything to him. May the healing hands of time work diligently on your behalf.
With a heavy heart and a fond remembrance,
Coleen Cox and Tim Fogarty
Just 2 days ago I saw someone who reminded me of Tom. We weren't always on the same side of an argument, but we always had a nice chat whenever we ran into each other. It feels like a significant piece of my history is now missing. R.I.P. WA1MJE, SK. dah-dit-dah. dah-dit-dit dit KA1CFE
