Tom graduated from Maynard High School (1989). He received a B.S. in Civil Engineering in 1993 from Worcester Polytechnic Institute graduating with distinction. He was a member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. Tom's work career was extensive and varied. It began at Parametric Technology, included several startups, and for the last ten years Tom was employed by Xyratex, Inc. and Seagate Technology – Cupertino, CA. He was loved and admired by all the people he worked with. His quick wit and kind heart endeared him to anyone who met him. If you left your car in his driveway you would come back to find it washed, waxed, and vacuumed. He always had a kind gesture for everyone and would give you the shirt off his back. He was a true friend, true neighbor and real salt of the Earth. Tom adored his children and was a dedicated husband and loving father. He enjoyed skiing with his family, playing squash with friends, carpentry, golf and Crossfit. Tom loved the outdoors. His favorite summer activities were camping with family, spending time at the pool with the kids, days at the beach, and bike rides. One of his favorite all time memories as a child was taking summer vacations to Cape Cod with his grandparents- Meme and Mampie. On Sunday evenings from Spring to Fall you could always find Tom on the couch watching golf, it always put him at ease while thinking about the workweek ahead of him. He will never be forgotten and is engraved forever on the hearts of all who knew him.
