THANK YOU ALL for your kind ,supportive and loving words They have comforted me and our children. Tom was an amazing man...talented, kind,generous and truly always loving.I am PROUD to say that Tom was my husband for 38 years!(Rare in sports,right?)Not only was he a gifted and ELITE athlete but he was also an ELITE husband and father, which ultimately, is truly most important. I THANK GOD for TOM and thank you ALL for your good thoughts. Vivian Veryzer, Tom's wife!

In 1974 at Anaheim stadium while standing alone near the third base line before an Angels/Tigers game Tom Veryzer politely approached me and signed my ticket stub. I was completely awestruck by his kindness toward me. I was 14 years old and it was my very first baseball autograph. I've carried that memory my entire life. My condolence to the Veryzer family.

My sympathies to the Veryzer family. I went to IHS & always followed Tom's career. Thank you for giving me a ball & signing my 1973 Yankee program. I still have it! I knew Tom came from a great family. As a student I would always ask his dad Mr Veryzer about Tom. He would always tell me of Tom's latest accomplishments. But, he would always made sure to mention his other children's accomplishments as well.

Tommy was a down-to-earth kid back in high school. I so vividly remember him passing me in the hallway between classes and always acknowledging me (a youngster by two years) with that quick and silent flick of the chin so typical in those days - and I would throw one his way, too.

I also got to know Tommy better during our involvement in sports. In addition to his athletic magic, I recall him as one of the most humble and unassuming individuals at Islip. You didn't need to hear him speak or even sense his presence to know he was there getting the job done.

Years later, I always felt proud of Tommy's accomplishments whenever hearing a family member or office colleague mention his name when discussing the ball game last night - and equally proud thinking, Yeah, I know who that guy is.

Heart-felt sorrow and thoughts with Vivian and Tommy's family, from my wife (Angela Liuzzi) and me.

I remember the many years ago at Islip High School. Always a gentleman, a bit of a rascal, and ultimately, "The Fox"

I remember the halls of Islip High School, I was just an underclassman, yet, I remember Tommy Veryzer. I was shy, but I would muster the courage to say, "Hi!" After high school I moved to Puerto Rico and I remember one day driving in my car when the sports news was on. The sports newscaster was talking about the baseball game and he was talking about "Tommy Veryzer!" I got so excited! The sense of pride and emotions overcame me, even though we just said "Hi" in the hallways of Islip High School, here I was in Puerto Rico and I knew who they were talking about!

My sincerest sympathy to Vivian and your children, to the rest of the Veryzer Family, and to Patty, in particular. May God comfort you in this time and always.

Tom was eleven years younger the me but I remember shooting Baskets with him in the Islip High School Gym. I remember thinking this little kid is pretty good. As a Graduate of the IHS class of 1960 I followed his career. RIP Tom and say hello to your Dad when you see him.
