Met Tom when I worked in Sandy Run Country Club's pro shop, Tom was a member. I was 14 years old and Tom would come over and buy soda for all the neighborhood kids, he seemed more comfortable playing basketball with us behind the pro shop than sitting in the clubhouse. We had a basket hung on a tree with no net, naturally, we were always in awe of Tom but he was the, "Saint"....He would open the side door of Convention Hall where the Warriors played and let the kid's from Sandy Run into the games....God Bless the,"Saint"...

I first met tom in 1984. The waltham Massachusetts police department held a celebrity golf tournament every summer to raise money for cystic fibrosis. I am a police officer with the waltham police department.Tom and Caroline attended a couple of these events. I was in tom's foursome and was his driver for 2 years. What an honor it was to get to know tom. I have a picture with tom and I that I keep behind my bar at home that I will always treasure. I will never forget those 2 years with tom. Caroline I am so sorry on the passing of tom. Hopefully we will see each other again for another round of golf.

SINCERE CONDOLENCE,AND SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY.......
February 08, 2014
I have known Tom and his wife Caroline for many years. My dear husband Frank OHara played basketball with Tom at Lasalle High School when they won the city championship beating Overbrook HS in 1950 and four years later at Lasalle College when frank and Tom were co captains and won the NCAA championship in 1954 beating Bradley Univ. Frank received an academic scholarship to Villanova Law School and he and Tom sustained a long friendship over the years until Frank died at 64 of Primary Progressive Aphasia, a very strange illness. I have always kept in touch with Caroline since Tom's unfortunate accident,10 years ago, like many of us have but my thoughts and prayers are with her now. She deserves a rest after her long long ordeal. Jean M. OHara

Our hearts, thoughts & prayers go out to Mrs. Gola, Tommy & family. May the memories of Mr. Gola be as bright & keep you as strong as this candle lit. His memories shall keep his spirit alive within each of you! Tom Gola was a great man whom I can best remember working with my dad at Ice Palace. May you rest in peace Tom, knowing how much you're cherished and may your family find strength within each other!
